“Suffering is not good for the soul, unless it teaches you how to stop suffering. That is it's purpose.” Seth
I love helping people discover their untapped resilience which lies sneakily inside them. Why? Because it's worked so well for me!
Now that I've learned about the principles underlying mental wellbeing, life is simpler, more joyful and much less stressful.
My search for a deeper understanding of life began in 1996 when my world was turned upside down. My then-husband and I tried having a baby (unsuccessfully) and our marriage fell apart.
Our single counselling session together was disastrous. I felt like a failure, completely unlovable and experienced thoughts of suicide.
Eventually, I remember thinking, "If I can save just one couple from going through this living hell, it will have been worthwhile..."
Deciding to become a counsellor myself, I 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 happier and more connected to the important people in their lives.
