How can Counselling help you

Wondering what to expect from counselling? The best counselling happens when a counsellor develops a collaborative relationship with a client, helping them to explore, identify and define their issues and concerns. Using a combination of skills, experience, and qualifications in counselling and psychology, I work with my clients to build trust and rapport, and support them to gain insights, explore options, set goals, make decisions and take action. To help clients with issues at work, career coaching and transition, I also draw on my experience in Human Resources and change management.

One way to find a counsellor is to ask for recommendations, and many of my clients are referred by friends or colleagues who have recommended counselling as a way to move forward, make changes, and live a happier life. My goal of simply helping sums up my approach; the focus is on you, the client, I am simply here to help.

We offer you lots of choice and flexibility, with appointments available Monday to Friday, the option of evening appointments on Wednesday and Thursday, and Saturday appointments as well. You can select a day and time that suits you through the online booking system. If you need an appointment sooner, or none of the available times suit you, please get in contact and I will aim to meet your needs. For added choice, we also offer ‘Walk and Talk’ and ‘Talk and Tidy’ appointments (more details below, and on the Fees and Services page).


The office is at street level in a local shopping strip, with off street parking out front. While the address is Robinson Road, the entrance and parking is on Wilmah Street. The Coronis real estate office on the corner is a good landmark.

Alternative appointment options

If a traditional counselling environment is not your preference, I offer clients the option of ‘walking and talking’. Simply book the ‘Walk and Talk’ option in the online booking, or call / email me to arrange your appointment. We’ll pick a park, put on comfy shoes, and have a 45 or 60 minute stroll. Another option is a ‘Talk and Tidy’, where I come to your home and provide counselling support, plus some hands on input, working with you to create an environment that is comfortable for you, by talking and tidying together. Please see the ‘Fees and Services’ page for more info on these options, or give me a call to discuss what’s likely to work best for you. These counselling options are available in North Brisbane suburbs within a 15 minute drive of our Aspley office, bringing you a local counselling option for suburbs from Albany Creek to Bowen Hills, McDowall to Virgina, and all suburbs in between.
