Couselling Services

Professional Counselling Perth


How can I help? I possess a specialised interest in providing professional counselling services for anxiety and depression. Additionally, I specialise in offering therapy to individuals who are concerned about their relationships, self-esteem, anger management, substance dependence, as well as 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 and Abuse

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 and Alcohol Counselling Perth

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 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 don't hesitate to contact me and schedule an appointment.

LGBT Issues

Are you facing challenges or concerns regarding your sexual orientation? Or, are you uncertain 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, confidential and non-judgemental environment to 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? 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?

Self-Esteem and Confidence Counselling Perth

Are you currently struggling with exceptionally low confidence? Maintaining a healthy level of self-esteem is crucial, particularly when it comes to our relationships and careers. Traumatic events like the breakdown of a relationship or experiencing redundancy can significantly affect our sense of self-worth. Additionally, unresolved issues from childhood and our family environment can also take their toll on our ability to think positively about ourselves.
