My passion is connecting people with the information and self knowledge that will liberate and enliven every corner of their life. Whether you are aware yet or not, you hold great wisdom and know more than you think!
I specialise in parenting, attachment and child mental health. With time spent in the not-for-profit sector and over 15 years working with families and children of all ages, I understand the many challenges families can face.
My big loves are Conscious Communication and the attachment parenting program Circle of Security, as they are such simple, highly effective lenses to easily connect us to getting our needs met and finding our personal power.
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'd love to help you find it!!
With counselling, it's really important you feel comfortable and understood. I encourage you to ask questions and follow your instincts on this, so if you would like to have a chat and go from there, I welcome your call.
I offer specialised sessions as well as small groups for children who may be experiencing challenges with social cues and emotional regulation. These skills are developed through Play Therapy, Social Stories and Floortime interventions, music and role play. Suited for children who may be highly sensitive, on the ASD spectrum or simply developmentally delayed. NDIS approved.
Based on decades of attachment research, I deliver the world renowned Circle of Security Parenting program. This powerful group supports parents to rely on and honour their innate wisdom whilst deepening their capacity to read their child's changing emotional needs and ability to manage emotions and ultimately, enhance their child's self esteem and resiliency.
Whether you are simply needing support with direction, learning new relational skills or the deeper work of healing and understanding a significant life challenge, I offer a number of techniques to approach reaching your goals, with sensitivity and commitment to your individual needs.
I believe it to be essential that a holistic approach be taken when we pursue understanding the unique inner experience of another. Each of our histories, 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 personal for each of us. Education, mindfulness strategies, body work (Somatic Focusing) and talk therapy are all methods that direct us in shaping the best care for supporting your journey to the truest, most free expression of our individual self-actualisation.
I love to support parents to clear 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, Emotion Coaching, Family Systems work, child development and decades of experience working with children of all ages and numerous neurological diversities.
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.
