I have been supporting young people and training the professionals who work with them for 20 years. I have worked in a variety of settings incl. international school counselling, crisis intervention, career guidance & as a specialist outreach worker.
I hold a:
BA (Hons) Community & Youth Work Studies

I am an Integrative Counsellor which means I have lots of strategies in my ‘toolkit’ and can adapt the way that suits the person I am working with. I am trained in DBT Skills for Adolescents, Solution Focused Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, CBT and Choice Theory amongst others. I have 9 years counselling experience and I am a member of the Australian Counselling Association.
I am also an accredited trainer through Nuco Training UK to deliver accredited First Aid for [Youth] Mental Health.
