I love helping people discover the source of peace and happiness which lies sneakily inside them. Why? Because it's worked so well for me!
For the first 40+ years of my life, I'd often fly off the handle, blame others for how I was feeling, literally drive myself and everyone around me crazy. I even wondered whether I had "Generalised Anxiety Disorder". Now that I've learned how the system works (hint - it's an inside job!) life is simpler, more joyful and much less stressful.
One of the things I'm often asked is, "What brought you into this line of work?" It seems to me that when we've learned something helpful, it's human nature to want to help others feel the same way...
My search for a deeper understanding of life began in 1996 when my world was turned upside down. I was trying to have a baby and my marriage fell apart. My then-husband and I went to counselling and it was disastrous. I felt like a failure, completely unlovable, and experienced thoughts of suicide.
Eventually, I remember thinking, "If I can save one couple from going through this living hell, it will have been worthwhile..."
“Suffering is not good for the soul, unless it teaches you how to stop suffering. That is it's purpose.” Seth
So I decided to become a counsellor myself, went back to uni and got the piece of paper. After working for Lifeline in Lismore for three years, I opened my own practice here in Bangalow in 2015.
Bottom line? I love helping people feel how they want to feel and do what they want to do!
