SUPPORTING YOUR FAMILY TO THRIVE

0411 213 759

there's an easier way...

I'd love to help you find it!!

My passion is supporting:


  • Parents who are motivated to embrace their own healing, to gift their children with self assurance and an inner resilience that creates strongly connected relationships within the family and the kind of future lives of which many of us only dreamt.  Parents who are aware they don't want to dominate and suppress their children, without resorting to permissiveness and chaos!enhance security, strong family connections and ease the stress on everyone!


  • Highly sensitive and attuned souls whose brave hearts have endured enough.  They might find the world somewhat of an overwhelming and intense place, given the depth and intensity of what they experience.  These clients are often highly intuitive and aware, yet have been disconnected from their power and clarity by one too many bumps in the road. 


  • Children and teens who experience big feelings and behavioural challenges.  Whether due to neuro-diversity, heightened sensitivity or difficult circumstances, often once pain and confusion can be met with the information and deepened understanding of emotional conditions, great behavioural shifts become possible.


Ultimately, I aim to make the whole healing process much less confusing and overwhelming than many experience it to be!  Connecting you with the information and self knowledge that will liberate, enliven and empower you so that  things which may previously have been blocked and unclear can shift.  


I offer the companionship to support healing to move through as you undertake this brave journey to self understanding, so that you are better able to anchor to your own strength and wisdom.  


For all of us at times, there can be circumstances, beliefs or habits that get in the way of our inner knowing and personal empowerment.  Be it in relationships, work or your relationship within, perhaps there is an easier way to enhance your experience.


I look forward to connecting with you.

Communication & Social/Emotional Skill Building for Kids

I love to work with little ones who are particularly struggling with social cues and emotional regulation, so they can grow to find the world a less confusing place.  Sessions are suited both to neuro-typical and neuro-diverse children. 


I use Connected Communication (NVC), Play Therapy, Social Stories and Floortime interventions, music and role play to build safety and support learning in a fun way, conducive to the way their minds work.  


Primarily these sessions are conducted one on one, however larger group work can be arranged in Home Schooling settings.  NDIS APPROVED

Connected Communication (NVC) & Parent Groups

Based on decades of attachment research, I deliver the world renowned Circle of Security Parenting program.  This powerful group supports you to rely on and honour  your innate wisdom and find your power, supporting you to enhance your child's self esteem and resiliency as well as create greater ease and enjoyment in being a parent.


Connected Communication (also known as Non-violent Communication or NVC) is based on the wonderful work of Psychologist Marshall Rosenberg.  

This work brings profound awareness and inner connection, opening doorways to greater intimacy and connection within and in all relationships.

I believe it to be essential that a holistic approach is taken when we aim to understand the unique inner experience of another.  Our neurobiological landscapes, personal biographies, relational and physical environments and circumstances are all keys to the healing and meaning we seek.  


So many things can impact our connection to this and the path is so very personal for each of us.  


Psycho/social education, mindfulness, body work (Somatic Focusing) and talk therapy are all methods I find direct us in shaping the best care for supporting our journey to the truest, most free expression of our individual self-actualisation.

I love to support parents to gain clarity on what gets in the way of their acting on their own deeper knowing. By enhancing our capacity to notice our thinking and impact, we are able to access far greater choice and better read children's changing needs. Such awareness provides children with the deeply secure relational attachment and conditions to enhance resiliency and thrive.


My approach to supporting parents draws on Attachment Theory, Relational Neurobiology, NVC, Emotion Coaching, Family Systems Theory, child development and decades of experience working with children with complex behaviours, of all ages and numerous neurodiversities.

Much of my counselling work with relationships draws primarily on the wonderful Gottman Method, Emotion Focused Technique and Conscious Communication (also known as Nonviolent Communication). 

 

This takes into account advanced attachment theory and decades of evidence based research on habits of lasting loving relationships.  Regardless of early relational experiences, habits of secure emotional intimacy can be learnt.  Our goal is to give you all the tools you need to grow and maintain a strong, fun and authentic union that deeply sustains and honours both partners.
