Gloria is passionate about relationship counselling, and has practised as a Psychologist for over 20 years, in both the private and public systems. In addition to her passion for psychology, Gloria works with her husband on an organic farm in the Hunter Valley, NSW. They have three adult children.
With a background in education, Gloria has worked with children and families, as well as adults and couples. Having lived and worked overseas, Gloria has experienced many different cultures, faiths and lifestyles, contributing to a rich background for exploring different perspectives with a broad, open approach.
Gloria’s interest in couple work was initially sparked by observations of the significant influence on children of a happy and stable relationship between their parents, and the tragic outcome on all, when the dream turns sour. More specifically, Gloria gets much pleasure and satisfaction of seeing couples in therapy grow in understanding each other’s perspective and working through difficulties together. As individuals, each blossoms when their couple relationship becomes more nurturing, fun and fulfilling. Appreciating the significance of this dynamic between two committed people has made Gloria dedicated to continue her work and commitment to this most significant of relationships. Gloria uses an eclectic approach in counselling, with mainly evidence-based interventions.
Gloria also is available for appointments for Anger Management, Narcissism, and Pre-Marriage Counselling.
