I am a fully qualified, practising counsellor and group facilitator.  I have a strong passion for the development of others, both personally and professionally. My current focus is working one-on-one with my wonderful counselling clients and delivering the "Counselling Skills for the Accidental Counsellor" workshop across Victoria and NSW.

Prior to setting up my own business, my career included senior positions at the Department of Health & Human Services (DHHS), Department of Treasury & Finance, VicRoads, Lutheran Aged Care, Baptistcare (W.A.), the Alfred Hospital, as well as the General Manager of a recruitment agency. I have also consulted with a number of not-for-profit and community organisations.

I currently focus on delivering of the "Counselling Skills for the Accidental Counsellor" workshop across Victoria and NSW. Attendees at these workshop included solicitors, aged care staff, teachers, kindergarten employees, those working in the disability sector, community care workers, employment consultants, emergency services, funeral directors, beauty consultants, allied health professionals, nurses and even a couple of VFL coaches! I have a passion for delivering the "Counselling Skills for the Accidental Counsellor" workshop in regional and rural areas as I feel they often miss out on personal development due to their location.

 

In conjunction with delivering the public programs of the "Counselling Skills for the Accidental Counsellor, I also delivered customised, in-house programs. 

I am strongly committed to making a positive difference in the lives of others. As a counsellor and a facilitator, the feedback I have received describes me as knowledgeable, credible and motivating.  Counselling clients have found me to be compassionate, inspiring, motivating and solution-focused.

My counselling practice is in Cowes (Phillip Island), however I can consult in the Melbourne area, by appointment. I also conduct counselling via Skype, telephone and email.
