About Me

I am proud to present New Start Counselling and Psychotherapy. Not only have I a life long passion to help women and females along their health and well-being journeys, but I am passionate about being adaptable and meeting people where they are along that journey. 

I understand that issues of depression, anxiety, grief and loss, PTSD (trauma), parenting and relationships can seem daunting but with the right support, I can help you to look at these issues differently by understanding them and helping you find ways of overcoming their impacts.  

I have always found it an honour and privilege to be part of anyone's mental health journey. It is my vision and mission is to change the nature of therapy so that women, teenagers and children are masters of their own journey. Empowerment all the way. 

I am a single mother of twin girls, who are now teenagers and know the struggles and triumphs of being a single parent. Teenage years have bought a new perspective to the word 'struggle' but even in that arena, I have found real ways of coping and caring for myself. I understand the issues that female teenagers are facing and am committed to helping them become mentally strong and independent women.

Personally, I enjoy playing drums (currently looking for a band), reading, meditating, walking my dogs, dog training, making candles, and spending time with family and friends. 

I practice from a wonderful space at Project 18 in Port Adelaide SA, that I am sure you will love.
