Primary Registration: Australian Counselling Association

Qualifications: Bachelor of Behavioural Science

Profile: I am an Accredited Counsellor and Behavioural Scientist, completing my first training, a Diploma of Transpersonal Counselling, 20 years ago. Since then, I have dedicated myself to learning so I can help people live their lives to the fullest and be the most radiant and connected version of themselves possible. I was a relationship counsellor with Relationships Australia for 3 years before managing the Cairns Sexual Assault Service for 2 years. Prior to these roles I was a team leader at a Mental Health residential service and for a few years ran weekly groups about ‘healthy habits’ at a drug and alcohol rehab. In my 20’s I spent 7 years part-time, studying and teaching at a Tantric Yoga School in India and Thailand, which opened my mind and heart to new ways of experiencing sexuality. I also owned a Herb shop in Port Douglas for a few years. I have recently trained in Psychedelic Assisted Therapy with Mind Medicine Australia and look forward to being able to provide MDMA assisted couples therapy once the laws change. I currently live in beautiful Far North Queensland with my partner and offer sessions fulltime from my lovely room in Cairns City.

As a clinical psychosexual therapist, I support individuals and couples in any aspect of their sexuality and sex lives, such as dealing sexual functioning issues like low libido, difficulty orgasming, pain during sex, performance anxiety and ejaculation issues. I also welcome individuals and couples who would like support to navigate the psychological aspects of sex and sexuality such STI diagnosis, sexual and gender orientation, sexual trauma etc. Basically, if you are struggling in any way, as a qualified psychosexual therapist I can support you.

Counselling sessions are available in person (Cairns City) or via Zoom for individuals or couples over 18yrs old. I utilise a person-centred, strengths-based approach, which means I treat each person I work with as a unique individual who is the expert of their own life, while providing support and encouragement. I have training in various therapeutic modalities and am flexible according to client need. Emotional-Focused Therapy helps couples and individuals find and heal the true emotional core beneath their struggles. Narrative Therapy helps people give expression to the various stories of their lives, and to then choose to focus on the version of that story that feels the most empowering and enriching to them. Eye-Movement Desensitisation and Reprogramming helps people let go of situations and experiences from the past that have been keeping them stuck so that they can thrive in the present. Symbol work helps people access content that may be below everyday conscious awareness and process it in a new way. Motivational Interviewing and Coaching helps people approach issues and problems in their lives with new tools and from a new perspective. I would be honoured to support people from all walks of lives and backgrounds and would love to hear from you. I also offer clinical supervision for other therapists.
