Children learn self regulation skills and relaxation techniques to promote their mental health and well being.

Parents and carers are involved in understanding the potential value of these strategies and we support them to be incorporated within the home setting. Calmer children, calmer parents! Ahh!

We consider this helps the child/ren to generalise the skills and support proactive self care at home. Many parents and carers really enjoy the relaxation techniques too!

Counselling in Mission Beach

1:1 work with teens and adults Online, by phone or in-person.

As a Gestalt therapist, I practice a holistic approach that values an authentic, present-centred and experiential stance that is grounded in humanistic and existential psychology. My goal is to safely and respectfully support a lively awareness building process for individuals, and in doing so, facilitate conditions where one can experience meaningful growth and change.

I provide in-person therapy from a private and comfortable space in Mission Beach; sessions by phone or video are also available. While I have a Master's degree in Gestalt therapy, I value the therapeutic importance of bringing my life experience and my authenticity to our work together.
