My Story

When I was 15 years old, I started to read the magazine called “Psychology Today” which my father subscribed to.  If I remember correctly, the cover was orange in colour with black lettering.  I don’t remember what exactly it was then that made me want to read it; perhaps an innate desire to understand life and find answers to my teenage angst.  At the age of 16, I remember being asked at a career guidance club meeting what I wanted to be and I said with fervour, “a Psychologist”!  Life however,  took its own turn.  I had to leave school at 17 and go straight to work to support myself so psychology was the furthest from my mind.
 
I have a history of childhood physical and emotional traumas, several near death misses, depression,  emotionally abusive relationships, addictions to food and nicotine, job losses, financial difficulties, suicide attempts and breast cancer.   I could not understand why my life never worked and why I was always unhappy, so I started to read books, attend self-growth workshops and did  courses in counselling and various therapy modalities.  This included a multitude of therapies and energy healing sessions all over the world.  
 
In 2012/13, within a span of 5 months I had a series of many life challenging events, which included a sibling passing away, cancer diagnosis, end of a long term relationship and several other emotional and physical challenges.  This is when  I started to have Somatic Experiencing® therapy and in my sixth month of weekly therapy, I knew that this was the modality I wanted to specialise in.  After 3 years of training in the Brisbane cohort, I finally completed my SEP training in March 2017.
 
There is hardly anything that a client can tell me that will shock or frighten me, as I understand emotional, mental and physical pain well.  My life experience has given me what no paper qualification can.  Coupled with that, is my deep desire to help all humans find or recognise their best selves; to help them to grow and realise their dreams.  Dreams ARE meant to come true and they CAN!  So know that when you sit in front of me, empathy, compassion and non-judgement is second nature to me.  You are in safe hands!

My Values & Beliefs

Authenticity, fairness, integrity and transparency; these are some of my key values.  I believe we were all born innocent and pure; that the environment we grow up in can influence our personality and character.  I also believe we all have the ability and capacity to be the best parts of ourselves.
