How I can help you
I provide counselling for women. You're probably here because you're in pain. You want to feel better. You want to know how to escape from anxiety attacks; depths of depression; a society that doesn't understand or offer you many choices. You could be experiencing the impacts of trauma, feeling stuck in a loop after a bad break up, or just wanting to change a negative pattern.
My unique Online Counselling connections can help you travel away from pain, frustration and helplessness towards greater understanding, empowerment and happiness. Narrative therapy isn't a 'quick fix': being listened to, in turn learning to listen to your body, and rediscover yourself via your own unknown pockets of awesome is a skills for life. Our stories when explored and rediscovered in all their richness, can make us stronger forever.
What to expect
'You are not the problem, the problem is the problem' is the core idea behind narrative therapy. So let's find out what the problem is- really explore, define, understand and acknowledge the pain you are in. That's what a counsellor does: listen with absolute curiosity about YOU and what's affecting you. Once we understand and name the problem narrative, we have a much better chance of discovering your skills, your uniqueness, your bravery, your specialnesses to then plan how to get you out from under the heaviness of overwhelm and unhappiness. I don't have any intention of inviting anyone to relive trauma: you should finish a session feeling relief, or catharsis: like you have a better sense of yourself, a heightened awareness of your own skills, and a new optimism about moving forward in your life- if that's not too much of a stretch. Get in touch for a FREE 15 minute consult to see if i'm a good fit for you. Oh, and FYI: I have short pinkish hair now, so I'll look a bit different from here if we meet on video F2F.
If you'd like to know more about me, my approach, training, and have more of a sense of stuff- like that I've lived all over Australia and overseas (I so get feeling isolated!)- and how I arrived here to be offering you help then please read more on the about me page on my website.
You can also sign up to get my free blog in your email inbox, which covers a pretty big range of topics related to women's experiences.
Healing is possible...
Nothing is too small or too large to bring to counselling.
There isn't anything that can't be supported by either talking or writing about it with a professional counsellor: you and I can co-create the right intervention around your situation, your life, and your hopes for yourself.
The way we tell our stories has a huge impact on how we feel about ourselves. I can help you discover sides of your stories you may not have even been aware of.
Where you resisted when you thought you were helpless.
Where you were strong when you thought you were weak.
When you took care of others when you thought you were selfish.
I can help you regain and enrich a sense of self that you though you had lost. I get to know the REAL you, in all your wonderfulnesses as well as the problems and help you move towards the life you want for yourself. Heal and recover from even the most painful experiences.
