My secret talent:
Spotting wildlife on a bushwalk – I like to think it’s because I notice minute changes in my surroundings, but it’s probably just that I have excellent hearing!
What’s it like to be in a room with me?
I think that asking for help and coming to therapy are difficult and courageous things to do. I try to recognise this by holding a safe and non-judgemental place for my clients to explore their experience and try out new skills and ideas. I am curious and attentive, and I like to think and work holistically – that is, I’m interested in how body, mind, and our social environment contribute to our mental health. People have told me that I’m warm and genuine and that they feel understood by me. We will also likely share a few laughs along the way.
What’s my non-negotiable when it comes to taking care of my own mental health?
Walking, preferably under the sky and amongst trees. Reading and thinking time. Balancing time connecting with others and time spent alone. These all fill my cup in different ways.
My life motto:
