    How many years counselling experience do you have?

    I’m now into my 7th year as a counsellor

    What are three strengths you have as a Psychologist/Counsellor?
    1. Intuition & Life Experience – In my own life I have been through many challenges and this allows me to much better understand and empathise with clients are what they are going through.
    2. The ability to create a safe and empathetic space for people, allowing them to explore their world and the real reasons for what’s happening in their lives and why.
    3. I participate in ongoing training and education in my field both in Australia and overseas so I always have access to the world’s best resources and methods to help my clients.
    What is the most satisfying and fulfilling part of the work you do?

    Watching individuals & couples grow emotionally and find ways to make the changes in their lives that then let them recover from the problems they’ve been facing. This emotional growth often lets them establish much better communication and create a healthier relationship. Importantly it leaves them equipped to deal with future issues as they arise in life.

    What’s an example of a couple you have helped the most?

    I have been seeing a couple recently who had not been physically intimate for more than 2 years. We have been working through the issues that have been blocking the intimacy as part of their relationship. They are now at a stage where the intimacy has returned and they are connected again in a healthy relationship.
