This Hart therapist is an experienced relationship counsellor and registered/active member of the Psychotherapy & Counselling Federation of Australia (PACFA). Since the completion of her Master of Counselling degree, she has pursued extensive training in relationship counselling which she brings to her current work, along with a deep passion for supporting couples. She is a recipient of an Australia Day Award (2020), for commitment to the local community through her counselling work.
Her approach is responsive, empathic and relational. She understands how skills developed in the therapy space need to be transferable to a couple’s home life. She provides specific strategies and tools to get things ‘back on track’, improve communication and effectively manage conflict. It’s often the ‘little things’ couples fight about or the ‘same old’ things, which become roadblocks to intimacy and connection. She will initially explore your goals for the relationship and help identify where your strengths and challenges are.
She loves spending spare time with her husband, adult children, toy poodle and going for walks in nature. She also enjoys creating large abstract artworks on canvas, which often informs her counselling work around what requires more focus or attending to.
Working on your relationship takes commitment, practice, time and courage. She will support you to give it your ‘best shot’ and create lasting change.
