    Mary has recently followed her calling into counselling and coaching after a career in sales, management and business development. Mary realised that the business world was not fulfilling her need to engage with people on a deeper level and undertook new qualifications in counselling and coaching.

    Mary’s passion is empowering people to recognise and embrace their own innate strengths. Mary believes that for a relationship to be successful, each member must feel like they are powerful within it and outside of it.

    Mary uses empathy and deep listening and teaches her clients tools to do the same. She provides a safe place for each participant to be heard and understood by their partner.

    What are three strengths you have as a Psychologist/Counsellor?

    My clients tell me that they feel heard, and that they feel they can trust me from early in the therapy. I have a natural warmth and empathy, but am passionate about fostering strengths. I use a lot of strength based therapy.

    I have a business development background and can relate to business owners and professionals

    What is the most satisfying and fulfilling part of the work you do?

    Watching a client come through debilitating anxiety or grief and seeing them begin to flourish has been a true revelation.

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

    Teaching a couple how to listen to each other with the intent to understand, rather than to respond has been very powerful. I had one couple who had become so toxic that every sentence uttered by the other party was deemed to be evidence of their mal behaviours. I was able to work with this couple to see beyond their own prejudice and listen. This couple did end up separating, but they were able to do so on a much more amicable level than pre counselling.
