I provide face-to-face and online Counselling, psychotherapy and coaching services to promote wellness, good mental health and prevention in Australia and across the world.

I have worked as a counsellor/psychotherapist in Australia for over 17 years - and in my own private practice for 13 years. I have been working online in Australia for over 10 years and internationally for over the past couple of years.

I am also an online supervisor, mentor and provide online therapy training in Australia. I have recently written my first textbook - Online therapy: Processes, tasks, integration and energetic holding. My work speaks to 'the space between', 'the liminal' (from the Jungian tradition), doors between worlds and how to connect on a deeper level in the void, the vortex or the expansive world that is the online therapeutic space.
