Firstly, if confidentiality is your primary concern, you can rest assured: “discretion” is Sandy’s middle name. She'll go to whatever lengths are required to protect your privacy.
With a Graduate Diploma in Counselling, a Bachelor of Education and sixteen years as a volunteer Crisis Supporter on the phones at Lifeline, Sandy brings a broadly-based yet simple approach to mental wellbeing.
Sandy's two primary passions are enjoying "the simple life" and serving humanity. Her background includes living in the USA as an expatriate, infertility, divorce, chronic illness (and an unwavering support for AFL's Richmond Tigers!)
Sandy knows that anxiety and depression (including thoughts of suicide), addiction and habits, as well as childhood experiences can all impact our quality of life and our relationships.
Utilising a unique mind-body-spirit approach based on innate resilience and wisdom and the important role of “Thought”, Sandy also knows that you are the expert in your life, never giving direct advice.
“Suffering is not good for the soul, unless it teaches you how to stop suffering. That is it's purpose.” Seth
Having lived in the Byron Shire for 20 years, Sandy “gets” the vibe, the changes, the reasons for being here. She feels blessed to be living in the village community of Bangalow with her husband Pete.
