I established The Centre for Counselling and Therapeutic Services in 2017 to provide a place where people could come for practical information, counselling and heartfelt support to navigate a range of difficult life circumstances.

I provide counselling and therapy support for people living with:

  • Grief and loss
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Stress, Trauma and traumatic experiences
  • Ageing and end of life
  • Life transitions
  • Life limiting illness
  • Emotional, physical , spiritual, psychological pain
  • Relationship challenges
  • Self-esteem and confidence

I provide individual counselling and therapeutic group programs, to adults for  60 or 90-minute therapy sessions using a range of modalities. Servicing the Geelong, Bellarine Peninsula and the Surf Coast, I provide counselling in person, via the web (Zoom), or via the telephone.

‘Coming home’ to your ‘centre.’

The ‘centre’ part of our name is a reference to the place inside. That still places where we ‘come home’ to ourselves when events outside of our control threaten to destabilise our natural sense of rhythm.

Many things in life are outside of our control. My mission at The Centre for Counselling and Therapeutic Services located in Clifton Springs, is to offer you a counselling service that can help you find your way home to your ‘centre’ so that you can navigate life’s trials and tribulations in ways that matter to you. Using a range of therapeutic modalities, I aim to provide therapeutic support to the community in and around Geelong, Bellarine Peninsula, and the Surf Coast.

“I truly believe that only when head and heart work in harmony, can we attain our full human potential”

I offer individual counselling as well as workshops and drumming events for emotional, spiritual and psychological wellbeing.


I have over two decades of counselling experience spanning community settings and therapeutic services around Australia,  supporting people through many of life’s emotional upheavals, changes and transitions.

I have a particular interest in supporting people navigating stress and trauma including experiences of grief and loss, life-limiting illness, ageing and end-of-life. This includes non-death grief and loss, chronic stress, shock and developmental trauma.

Drawing on a range of theoretical frameworks in my counselling practice my approach is embodied and grounded. My approach and offerings are informed by somatic experiencing, focusing and creative therapies using drums, sandplay therapy, dreamwork. I aim to support you to acknowledge your emotions and experiences with compassion. My intention is to provide the conditions that support connection, expansiveness, self-understanding and acceptance, and the emergence of ‘possibility’ so that you can navigate and understand the meaning behind your emotional life and the experiences that formed who and how you are today. Through counselling and therapy, I hope to help you create a pathway forward for you to live your life in a way that matters to you while benefiting you, your loved ones and the planet.

I am a clinical member of the Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia (PACFA register no: 23894) providing counselling and therapy services to adults residing in the Geelong, Bellarine Peninsula and the Surf Coast regions.

To provide the conditions that support the acknowledgment of all human emotions, and experience as signposts to meaningful self-understanding, compassion and growth.


To live in a world where people are understood and accepted as each having a story to tell, and that accepting the story as meaningful, whilst allowing space for the story to emerge, ultimately leads to a sense of  ‘home’ and ‘belonging’.

    Acknowledgement of Country

    For thousands of years aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have met on this land; telling stories, doing business and embodying culture. In this culture there is a story for every mountain, every creek, every hill, every rock, and every being.

    The Centre for Counselling and Therapeutic Services would like to acknowledge the first custodians of Australia and their connection to community and country. We pay our respects to their ancestors past, and elders present and emerging. May we honour them by continuing to share stories and bring our personal mythology to bare on the world. 

    We express our sorrow for the lasting impact of colonisation on their culture, language and sense of home.
