Normally, I provide counselling to individuals, couples and families at my consulting room in Hornsby or by visiting clients in their homes or other preferred locations such as residential care facilities or workplaces within a 30-minute driving radius of Hornsby.

In the interests of the well-being of the community in assisting the containment of the COVID-19 virus, face-to-face counselling services are suspended until further notice. Counselling is available through telephone, online (instant messaging and video conference) and email.

How counselling can help
People often find that talking to a counsellor helps them to —

  • Deal with a difficulties in a relationship (more …)
  • Respond to domestic and family violence (more …)
  • Clarify and make sense of something that has happened (more …)
  • Solve a problem, devise a plan or make a decision (more …)
  • Change a way of thinking or behaving which is causing problems (more …)
  • Manage difficult feelings and emotions (more …)
  • Cope with a major loss, life change or set-back. (more …)
  • Find, analyse and act on information (more …)
  • Enhance self-care (more …)

My approach
You are the expert on your life.  With your experience, knowledge, skills and personal strengths, it is natural that you will have your own preferred ways of dealing with what concerns you.  By talking together, we will carefully build a shared understanding of what you want from counselling, and decide how we can best work together to help you get what you want.  I will always offer alternative ways of working for you to choose from, and I will keep checking with you to ensure our work is progressing as you would wish.
