I'm sure you have asked yourself that question.

I certainly did at 19 years old when I was trying to find me, literally. I thought if I found my biological mother, I would find me. 

Low self-esteem and self-worth, anxiety and constantly searching for a sense of belonging was always with me. 

Raised in a large multi-cultural family, a feeling of emptiness and anxiety was a constant companion.

As fate has it, I had to find me without my biological mother. This set me on a path of personal empowerment and growth.


I have invested thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours in workshops, training, courses, coaches, counsellors to understand myself, the family I was adopted into, my past traumas and to get to a place of acceptance and peace.

Having been in fear and survival most of my life being able to self-regulate myself and be less in the flight, fight and freeze has been extremely rewarding. To thrive and feel calm is my constant goal and some days are easier than others as old programming and feeling unsafe has been with me from the moment I was conceived.

When I’m not working, I’m spending time with my partner, family, Charlie and Roxy my dogs and beautiful friends which fills my cup up. Being in nature, under the moon, watching a sunrise or swimming in the ocean is happiness. Reading, meditation, travelling in my motorhome and relaxing are a few of the simple activities I enjoy.

My passion and focus is developing and providing individuals and couples with the tools and solutions for self-empowerment and healing.

My purpose is driven purely by you achieving and maintaining the results that are right for you.

I create and hold the space for the success & potential that I know awaits you within yourself and your relationship.

I have been working in private practice offering Coaching, Counselling & Psychotherapy since 2008. Previously I went to Massey University studying in Horticulture, worked in nurseries, garden centres, and moved from New Zealand to Australia in 1987 on a working holiday and never left. My 3 sons have been the greatest gift to my life and still to this day teach me so very much about myself, relationships, and life.

On my quest to helping individuals and couples find relief from heartache and get back to loving in a timely and speedy way I have sought out the most effective way for couples to move forward. I now offer a package approach which includes Counselling, Psychotherapy and Coaching in guiding couples towards a sustainable long lasting close relationship or an amicable split.
