    How many years counselling experience do you have?

    I have worked in my current role as a therapist for over one year. Before that, I was very lucky to have done one year of clinical placement with some fantastic therapists across Melbourne. I have also done an array of workshops delving into practices such as tantra, BDSM and sensual touch.

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

    Empathy, Compassion and Unconditional positive regard. Empathy means that I am truly able to imagine what it’s like to stand in someone else’s shoes. Compassion is showing kindness, care and the willingness to help others. Compassion and empathy help my clients feel understood, validated and heard. Unconditional positive regard means that nothing my clients can do, could give me a reason to stop seeing them as inherently human and inherently lovable. It does not mean that I accept each and every action taken by a person, but that I accept who they are at a level much deeper than surface behaviour, that no matter what, they have my support and acceptance.

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

    I am so lucky to love my job. Being able to offer clients a safe, unconditional space, where they can explore their inner world and heal their pain, is the most rewarding and satisfying feeling. Seeing people leave my room with hope, relief and inspiration is what makes this job so fulfilling and gratifying.
