    Leanne has been a registered psychologist since 2009. She specialises in relationship counselling, and also has experience working with a vast array of issues, ranging from addiction, anxiety and depression to trauma and eating disorders.  She enjoys working with adults as well as children. Leanne firmly believes that what happens within a relationship can impact more than just the couple, as such it is important to put in that effort to make positive and loving change.  Leanne also sees clients who are experiencing sexual difficulties, including low libido, erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation.

    Leanne’s focus is on allowing the individual and couple to express their needs in a safe and nurturing environment.  Her method of counselling includes Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Mindfulness and Motivational Interviewing, often integrating the three to achieve the best outcome based on individual needs.

    When working with couples Leanne likes to consider the whole family environment, and will occasionally see the couple individually to work on issues that are presenting within the relationship. This allows for total openness and a space to learn more about your own behaviours without feeling judged or criticised. The aim of relationship counselling is to open communication so as to nurture the relationship and get reacquainted with each other, to find out what our partner needs, and sometimes to also discover exactly what it is that you need.

    In addition to marriage/relationship counselling Sydney, Leanne is also available for appointments for family counselling,  pre-marriage counselling, sexual difficulties, porn addiction, anger management, narcissism, and phone appointments.

    What are three strengths you have as a Psychologist/Counsellor?
    1. Easy to talk to/approach. I often get people tell me they felt comfortable from the first moment of coming into the office.
    2. Very open minded to talk about things from your perspective, offering my thoughts without judgement on you or your partner.
    3. Willing to try different things/therapies that will benefit my client.
    What is the most satisfying and fulfilling part of the work you do?

    Seeing clients make a real shift in the way they think and behave. We all get stuck in our own thoughts sometimes and it is great to see change, especially when that translates to a couple finding peace in their relationship, or even in themselves.

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

    When a couple has simply lost that loving feeling (sounds like a song!). They have been together a long time and have forgotten the art of being nice to each other. They take each other for granted, stop listening and become more selfish. I love helping these couples see were they have gone wrong and connect to each other again. It almost brings a tear to my eye when I see a couple really see each other again, especially if it has been a long time.
