With a Graduate Diploma in Counselling from the Australian College of Applied Psychology, a Bachelor of Education from Melbourne University, and sixteen years as a Volunteer Crisis Supporter on the phones at Lifeline Australia, Sandy brings a broadly-based yet simple and profound approach to mental wellbeing and living a successful life, on one's own terms.
Her background includes living in the USA as both a foreign exchange student (in Minnesota) and an expatriate (in Connecticut). When Sandy experienced the effects of chronic illness, infertility and divorce (long-term anxiety and depression, including thoughts of suicide), the quality of support she received was hit-or-miss.
“Suffering is not good for the soul, unless it teaches you how to stop suffering. That is it's purpose.” Seth
As a result, Sandy learned the fundamentals of avoiding unnecessary suffering, created a simple yet impactful life for herself, and became determined to help others do the same. Utilising a unique, leading-edge approach to psychology called The Three Principles (or the Inside-Out Understanding), Sandy knows that there is always hope, that human beings are always capable of seeing and experiencing life differently.
Sandy loves working with individuals and couples to help them create the life they’ve imagined. She has an intuitive edge, utilising both love and wisdom, to achieve transformational results for her clients!
