    Areas of Interest

    Sharon’s primary areas of interest are relationship issues, marriage therapy, cross-cultural relationships, family therapy, adjustment and transition issues, anxiety, depression and trauma.

    Sharon has been practising as an individual and relationship counselling psychologist for 15 years and is passionate about working with individuals and couples to help them live a more meaningful and connected life.

    She has worked in Australia and overseas, and therefore has a deep understanding of the main challenges facing couples from different cultures.

    Sharon’s desire is to help clients build healthier, deeper and more satisfying relationships, and she focuses on empowering each individual to reach their full potential.

    She is committed to working with individuals who present with a range of issues, including anxiety, stress, trauma, and cultural adjustment issues.

    Sharon has a caring, warm and genuine nature that assists her in working with both individuals, and couples struggling in a relationship. Her relaxed style provides a comfortable and safe environment within which clients can explore their deeper issues and challenges.

    She is passionate about helping couples feel more emotionally connected, more aware and in tune with each other’s needs, improving communication skills, managing and reducing conflict, dealing with betrayal and loss of trust, negotiating parenthood, and providing a deeper understanding of their situation and patterns so they are better equipped to deal with issues that may arise in the future.

    Sharon uses a holistic and integrated approach and utilises a range of therapeutic techniques, tailoring therapy to suit each client’s needs. She views the therapeutic process as a journey where every participant works together to achieve the desired goals.

    How many years counselling experience do you have?

    15 years.

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

    I am empathetic, genuine and respectful.

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

    Watching couples work together to better understand themselves and their own needs, as well as their partners, and seeing the transformations they go through together as they grow and gain new skills that allows them to have a healthier more satisfying relationship that can flourish.

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

    A couple who had been married for over 12 years and had 2 children, who were stuck in a terrible rut where they lived functionally to complete tasks for the children but had completely lost their connection and passion for each other.  Helping this couple rediscover themselves in the relationship and rebuild their friendship, connection, communication and passion.
