“The only cure for grief is to grieve” ~ Earl A. Grollman

Grief Counselling

Something has happened and you are now trying to pick up the pieces. Grief is often a lonely journey and can feel all consuming. As a counsellor in this space, I walk alongside you as a companion while you navigate the complexity and challenges of living with loss. Together we create a space for your grief to be witnessed, to be seen and heard without judgement. You do not have to do this journey alone.

Non-directive Pregnancy Counselling

Whether you are trying to start or grow your family, adjusting to pregnancy or early parenting challenges, navigating pregnancy or parenting after loss, or figuring out how to ‘be you’ and still parent in a way that feels congruent to your life values, I am here to hold space for these conversations. Matrescence is the transition we make from maiden to mother, likened to adolescence, and it is a transition of mind, body, soul and spirit. I would love to support you on this journey.

Medicare rebate is available for clients who are pregnant or have been pregnant in the past 12 months. GP referral required for ‘Non Directive Pregnancy Counselling’. This includes women who have experienced pregnancy or infant loss.

Please note: I cannot accept Mental Health Care Plans.

Grief Circles (in nature and online)

Honour your grief. Make space for peace. Grief takes many forms, and all are welcome here. You may be grappling with the death of a loved one, major life events, break-ups or divorce, past trauma, shifting personal identity, climate grief, and more.

This is your opportunity to bring your grief out of the darkness. You will be witnessed and heard; and witness others in their grief, too. Know that you are not alone. You will be offered prompts to reflect on, but what you share in the Circle is up to you. Tears and laughter are equally welcome, as is silence.

Embrace the warmth of community, find solace and strength in nature, and make room for light to filter through.

Clinical Supervision

I am accredited to provide clinical supervision and use the Rise Up Model which is Relationship-based Integrated Supervision and Education to Unlock Potential. I am able to use my years of experience to support immerging or experienced clinicians to increase their comfort in working in the grief and loss space. I work collaboratively to assist therapists to use self reflection and curiosity to explore difficult clients or issues that arise in their practice.

“There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition and of unspeakable love.”

~ Washington Irving.
