Level 2, Registered Counsellor - Australian Counselling Association. 

 

Supervised by Misha Crosbie | Soul Path Journeys 

 

I have completed my Bachelor of Counselling and was a recipient of a

commendation for Academic Excellence from USC.  This degree focused on

counselling theories, psychology, communication and relationships, family and individual counselling, crisis intervention, grief and loss and cultural diversity. 

 

As a counsellor, I currently work in several sectors which includes my 4-year involvement with Life Line Australia as an Accredited Telephone Crisis Supporter, Student Mentor (Prac Trainer), Community Recovery Officer (during natural disasters) and as Maroochydore's Centre Supervisor. These roles are supported by my private practice - Coast Life Counselling.  

I am a white Caucasian woman (PGP’s: she/her/hers) in a heterosexual marriage with four step children. In addition, I have resided overseas for many years and understand the complexity surrounding expat living and repatriation. As such, I endeavour to be conscious of how my privileged traits may show up in the world and therapeutic settings. 

 

​​MY APPROACH

I work from a client-centred and collaborative approach. My aim is to offer a space where a voice can be heard and witnessed, strengths identified, coping skills learned, resilience recognized and hope re-discovered. I focus on creating a supportive and safe space where life goals, values and beliefs can be explored and cultural norms and personal patterns can be changed or discarded. 

Perhaps you may wish to explore a particular topic or only come for a particular amount of sessions or you may simply wish to discover new boundaries or possibiliites. Nevertheless, this is your space and time. 

I view counselling as a place where people can be listened too. A place were emotions, thoughts and behaviours can be noticed and challenged, if required. Therefore, I integrate a Strength based approach with Somatic Focused Therapy and Creative Arts, including Mindfulness, CBT and Motivational Interviewing, depending on your needs and interests - with a view to connect your mind, body, emotions and self together.  Since, it is through the process of personal growth and self-discovery that new life pathways can be carved and walked on.
