Counselling Services in Perth


How can I help? I have a specialist interest and experience in providing counselling for anxiety and therapy for depression. I am also passionate about helping people who are concerned about their relationships, anger, self-esteem, substance dependence, sexual orientation and gender identity.

Anxiety Counselling

Do you often feel anxious, panicky, stressed, worried, tense or on edge? You're not alone. Anxiety is one of the most common reasons that people seek therapy.


Anxiety is a treatable condition. 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 experiencing persistent low mood and sadness, a loss of interest and enjoyment, and feelings of hopelessness or worthlessness? These are some of the typical signs and symptoms of depression.


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 make a full recovery.

Anger Management

Is your anger problematic or out of control? Learning how to manage your anger constructively can significantly improve your self-confidence, bring harmony to relationships and increase personal happiness.

Childhood Trauma & Abuse Counselling

Childhood trauma, whether in the form of 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. Counselling and psychotherapy for adult survivors of childhood abuse aims to tackle this trauma.

Drug & Alcohol Counselling

Is substance dependence impacting your relationships, family, physical health, mental health, employment, studies or finances?


Effective therapy aims to resolve your uncertainty around change and address any mental health issues that may be attached to your substance dependence such as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem or past trauma. If you are ready to take that first step of exploring your options, please contact me to arrange an appointment.

LGBT Issues

Are you experiencing problems or issues relating to your sexual orientation? Or, are you unclear about your gender identity and what this means for you?


I understand the challenges of being lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender, and I offer you a safe and non-judgemental environment in which you can explore these issues. My aim is to support you to develop healthy and satisfying relationships, and to feel positive about your sexual orientation and/or gender identity.

Relationship Counselling

Not getting along? Relationships can be a great source of love, enjoyment and support. However, most of us, at some point, will experience difficulties in our personal relationships. One to one relationship counselling can help you discover healthier patterns of relating to others. Why not take that first step to explore how to achieve a more fulfilling and better connection with others?

Self Confidence & Low Self-Esteem

Is your confidence at an all-time low? A healthy level of self-esteem is especially important in our relationships and careers. Traumatic events such as a relationship breakdown or redundancy can have a substantial impact on our sense of self-worth. Issues from childhood and our family environment can also take their toll upon our ability to think positively about ourselves.


If you’re ready to take the first step towards a more confident and positive you, please contact me to arrange an appointment.
