Counselling

FIND OUT MORE

In my counselling sessions, I aim to create a safe and inspiring space to explore what is going on for you. My focus is not just on helping you to overcome the difficulties that you are facing, but also to support you in living vibrantly, meaningfully and passionately. I believe in living a life that is authentic, compassionate, mindful, wholehearted and joyful, and I carry this through into my work.

In my sessions I draw from my the traditions of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy and Yoga Therapy (including iRest Yoga Nidra®). I have trained extensively in all of these areas.

I see my role as helping you find your way in overcoming obstacles and creating the kind of life you want to lead. I won’t tell you what to do or make your decisions for you. I will listen, non-judgmentally and compassionately, and support you on your journey.

Research has shown that one of the most successful ingredients in counselling is the therapeutic relationship. I encourage you to read though my website and see if you think we might work well together. It is important that you find a Counsellor that fits with you.

MAKE AN APPOINTMENT

I am available for counselling in Mullumbimby (Australia) and online from anywhere in the world.

I generally work on Tuesdays and Wednesdays during business hours.

I’n often booked up a month or more in advance, but would love to support you when I can.

I also run an online practice with brilliant team Psychologists and Mental Health Social Workers, who have much better availability than I do. If you would like to see a great therapist right away that I personally recommend, then I suggest visiting www.awakepsychology.com.au.

To make an appointment with me, get in touch.

Sorrow prepares you for joy.

It violently sweeps everything out of your house, so that new joy can find space to enter.
It shakes the yellow leaves from the bough of your heart, so that fresh, green leaves can grow in their place.
It pulls up the rotten roots, so that new roots hidden beneath have room to grow.
Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart, far better things will take their place.

Rumi

Coaching

Join me for intensive, gentle and heartfelt one-on-one sessions to access your inner wisdom, uncover your soul’s purpose and live a life that you truly desire.

We will listen to the whispers of your soul. Access your deep wild wisdom. Ask the questions that need to be asked and speak the words that need to be spoken.

We will talk. We’ll listen. We’ll sit in stillness. We’ll laugh. We’ll get serious.

Together we will create a sacred space where clarity, truth, love and wisdom emerge.

Coaching

FIND OUT MORE

As a Clinical Psychologist and Yoga Teacher I’ve worked with thousands of people over the past decade supporting them to find a way back to happiness. What I’ve realised during this time is that unhappiness is largely caused by two things: (1) not living the life we’re meant to be living and (2) not being able to tolerate un-comfortableness when it arises in us.

In coaching sessions with me I’ll support and guide you to not only find your life’s purpose, but to actually embody it. We’ll dream wild and wonderful dreams together, but we’ll also get very practical and grounded in making your life’s purpose a reality.

When we take a step towards living a life in accordance with our heartfelt desires, it’s not uncommon for fear and other challenging emotions to arise. We’ll explore this too and you’ll learn to ride the waves of emotion without getting dumped.

I’ve found that it is very helpful to have an experienced and compassionate listener and guide on this sacred journey. It would be my absolute honour to be that person for you during this time.

IS COACHING FOR ME?

Coaching with me may be for you if you’re ready to deeply listen to the whispers of your soul and make the changes that need to be made to birth your true self into the world.

Coaching with me may not be for you if:

  • You want someone to tell you what to do
  • You’re not willing to dive deep and be authentic and vulnerable
  • You want support to overcome depression or anxiety (counselling may be a better option at this time)
  • You don’t want to make changes or grow
  • You read through my site and it doesn’t resonate with you
  • You want to be fixed (working with me is about growth, not fixing; you’re perfect just as you are)

WHAT KIND OF THINGS DO WE DO TOGETHER?

In our first session, we’ll map out the direction of our work together.   You won’t be locked in to a cookie-cutter program, but rather we’ll design our sessions around your individuals needs and be flexible to meet whatever arises.

Here are some of the things we might explore together:

  • Getting clear on your heartfelt desires (what do you want your life to be about?)
  • Developing a clear map on how to manifest your heartfelt desires (let’s get practical and accountable)
  • Strengthening your relationship with your intuition/inner wisdom
  • Weighing up an important life decision
  • Understanding and moving through blockages (what’s stopping you from living your life’s purpose)
  • Nourishing and nurturing your high sensitivity (for Highly Sensitive People)
  • Developing a sacred daily practice (this may or may not include yoga practices)
  • Deepening your yoga practice to include ‘off-the-mat’ yoga (teachings and practices)
  • Finding meaning in challenging times
  • Getting clear on and implementing your personal boundaries
  • Being seen and heard on a soulful level
  • Connecting with joy, being and pure awareness (our true nature)
  • and much much more

Supervision/Mentoring

 

I love working with people interested in integrating yoga and psychology.  I’ve spent nearly two decades walking this path and it’s an honour to share what I’ve learnt and to support others to find their own path in this exciting and growing field.

Nearly every week I get a message from some delightful person asking for advice about how to integrate the worlds of Western Psychology and Yoga.

My first response is always that there is no one pathway. And that’s a good thing!

Let’s work together to support you to find YOUR way.

Coaching

FIND OUT MORE

I offer professional supervision for Psychologists, Counsellors, Social Workers and other Mental Health Professionals, for professional development, CPD and/or accreditation.

I’m a Psychology Board of Australia approved supervisor, and offer Supervision for the AHPRA Clinical Psychology Registrar program and the Transition Program for overseas Psychologists seeking registration in Australia.

I’m available for mentoring for Psychologists, Counsellors, Social Workers and other Mental Health Professionals interested integrating yoga and meditation into their clinical practice.

I’m also available for mentoring with Yoga Teachers working with individuals experiencing mental health concerns.

SUPERVISION

Supervision is an important part of growing as a therapist and meeting your ethical and CPD requirements.  As therapists, we ALL need supervision.  The first step in supervision is getting to know each other to see if we’re a good fit, from both a personal and professional perspective.  We’ll review your intentions, expectations and desired outcomes for supervision, and we’ll see if we’re a good match.

If we decide to go ahead with supervision, we’ll decide on the agenda for our sessions together.  This usually involves exploring your self care, case discussion and formulation, ethical issues, self reflection, takeaways and if supervision is for meeting board requirements, we’ll make sure we have that covered too.

MENTORING

Mentoring is similar but somewhat different from supervision.  Mentoring for Psychologists and Mental Health Professionals is more about focussing on you and your career, rather than on your clients or to meet any external board requirements.  Psychologists, student and intern Psychologists and Mental Health Professionals often come to me asking questions about the best ways to integrate yoga and meditation into their clinical practice, and in mentoring sessions we can explore this together.

Mentoring for Yoga Teachers and Therapists is an opportunity to explore how to best support their students experiencing mental health concerns.

COST

$210 per 50 minute session for individuals.

Sessions paid by organisations are $267 per 50 minute session.

A $50 deposit is required to book your session.

For Australians, supervision sessions that are required for ‘entry to the profession’ are GST-free.  All other supervision, mentoring, report writing and liaison attract an additional 10% GST.

No GST is payable for those outside of Australia.

MAKE AN APPOINTMENT

If you’re interested in working together, please start by sending me an email and letting me know a little about yourself and your intention for supervision or mentoring.

I am available in Mullumbimby (Australia) and online from anywhere in the world.

I generally work on Tuesdays and Wednesdays during business hours.

Before making an appointment, start by reaching out and introducing yourself.

When you do things from your soul,

you feel a river moving in you, a joy.
