MY COUNSELLING STORY
I began my studies in the healing arts in 1990 , weaving the philosophies of ancient Chinese Acupressure, Energy Healing, Intuitive Coaching and Qi Gong Techniques into my personal life and those of my clients. My journey began at the age of 14 and I began my professional practice in Sydney Australia in 2006 Prior to then I completed my BA and BsSc majoring in Social Science and Anthropology, Worked in advertising and marketing & traveled the world.
I am a registered Counsellor both Australia and Canada since 2018, and a Master Therapeutic Counsellor with over 2000 hours from early 2022. In addition I have studied NLP, Psych-K, Tapping, Reiki, Medical Qi Gong, and I have a written and taught Fusion Acupressure around the world. My varied background provides a broad a diverse understanding of people, culture and the psychology.
I have worked extensively with clients moving through physical pain, tension, sexual abuse, pregnancy loss, grief and loss, depression and relationship conflict. My own life has been a journey echoing similar loss, fears and struggle and I offer compassion and strength to each session, encouragement and empowerment.
I used to believe that healing was the end of suffering, I have since learned that healing is resilience and self-love; and it is my intention to empower you on this return to wholeness.
What makes my sessions unique is that I combine a lifetime of alternative, eastern and intuitive therapy techniques with Western psychotherapy principles.
