Specialities & Expertise


How can I help? I possess a specialised interest in providing professional counselling services to alleviate anxiety and depression. Additionally, I specialise in offering effective therapy for relationship issues, low self-esteem, anger management, substance dependence, and matters related to sexual orientation and gender identity.

Anxiety Counselling Perth

Do you frequently experience feelings of anxiety, panic, stress, worry, tension, or edginess? You're not alone. Anxiety is one of the most common reasons that people seek therapy.


The good news is that anxiety is a treatable condition. Specialising in anxiety counselling, I can provide you with anxiety management techniques to obtain relief from stress, overcome panic, and manage stressful situations confidently and calmly.

Therapy for Depression

Are you currently struggling with persistent feelings of low mood, sadness, a diminished interest in activities you once enjoyed, as well as experiencing hopelessness or a sense of worthlessness? These are some of the typical signs and symptoms of depression.


It's essential to recognise that suffering from depression doesn't have to be forever. You are not broken. You're just stuck. The good news is that with the right help and support, most people with depression achieve a full recovery.

Therapy for Childhood Trauma & Abuse

Childhood trauma, be it physical, emotional, or sexual abuse, can harm several areas of a person's adult life. The trauma may specifically impact an individual's ability to enter into meaningful and rewarding relationships. I offer counselling and psychotherapy in Perth for adult survivors of childhood abuse aimed at addressing and healing this trauma.

Drug & Alcohol Counselling

Is substance dependence taking a toll on your relationships, family, physical health, mental health, employment, studies or finances?


Effective addiction counselling aims to resolve your uncertainty around change and address any mental health issues attached to your substance dependence, such as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem or past trauma.

LGBT Counselling in Perth

Are you currently facing challenges or concerns related to your sexual orientation? Perhaps you are uncertain about your gender identity and how it may impact your life?

As an experienced LGBTQ+ counsellor and gender therapist, I understand the unique challenges that individuals who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender encounter. I offer a secure, confidential, and non-judgemental space where you can openly explore these issues.

Relationship Counselling

Not getting along? While relationships can be a great source of love, enjoyment and support, it's common for many of us to encounter challenges along the way. One-on-one relationship counselling offers an opportunity to explore healthier patterns of relating to others.


Why not take that first step towards discovering how to establish a more fulfilling and deeper sense of connection with those around you? Get in touch today.

Self-Esteem & Confidence Counselling

Are you struggling with low confidence? Maintaining a healthy level of self-esteem is crucial for our relationships and careers. Traumatic events, like relationship breakdowns or redundancy, can significantly impact our sense of self-worth. Unresolved childhood issues and a challenging family environment can also take their toll on our ability to think positively about ourselves.
