True Connections Counselling
So a bit about me...
Professionally I am a qualified counsellor, psychotherapist & couples counsellor and have been in private practice since 2004 in Sydney, Australia. I hold a professional membership with the Professional Association in the Counselling and Psychotherapy Field in Australia (PACFA) and am passionate about helping others to find the clarity to live true to who they are and to ultimately discover a joyful way of being in their lives.
Personally, I just love life! I enjoy living a super healthy lifestyle, I love cooking & gardening and committing to my own journey of personal development. Writing and sharing my understanding of life is another passion. Friends and family are super important to me and I am learning to love down time, just hanging out.
I have been in a relationship with my husband for over 22 years and have 3 children, 2 of which are adults now. I can tell you that it has not been all smooth sailing! Although we loved each other, we started our relationship with each partly wanting dominance and control, living as though we were in competition with each other! Crazy I know, but I see many couples do this. This led to fights and arguments which became an ingrained pattern of how we were together. Rather than be left feeling misunderstood we learnt how to open up and really let each other in - this was not easy but ultimately transformed our relationship. We now deeply love and appreciate each other and know how to show this. I have learnt that openness, honesty and our deep care for ourselves and each other are the keys to a great relationship.
Although I work with individuals and families, my area of expertise is with couples. I LOVE working with couples. I enjoy every part of the process from our first meeting to our successful conclusion. I know that the reason I am so good at what I do is that I truly love people, I have great insight and a passion in wanting to deeply understand you and why you do what you do in order to help you find a better way. I am here to work for you and with you, I like to say to my clients that we ‘workshop’ the issue together.
I am totally in this with you to guide and support
what is most true for you and each other.
Other than working with couples my extensive experience also covers many areas such as:
Addictions - smoking, alcoholism, drug use and gambling
Weight problems, disordered eating and an unhealthy lifestyle
Trauma & Abuse
Self-Esteem and Confidence
Fears and phobias
All therapy is 100% confidential and private.
