Welcome!


I’ve been working in the coaching, counselling and therapeutic field for 18 years, on both the Central Coast of NSW and northern beaches of Sydney,
and have loved every minute of it.

           

I started out on my own personal journey over 24 years ago now, and interestingly enough I didn’t think I needed help or had a problem.  It took a workshop to help me see that although I had what I thought were fabulous long term female friendships I chose unhealthy romantic relationships and also saw that I was the one always doing the giving, and I didn’t have the ability to say no.  Since I was a teenager I’ve always been off or on a diet without being able to keep it off.  I haven’t ever, got near my goal weight and I was carrying an extra 80 kilos at my heaviest.

 

My personal journey showed me that the extra kilos, the failed relationships and the job that I’d been in for 20 years which wasn’t fulfilling me, were a result  of the underlying belief  that I wasn’t enough – smart enough, good enough, or attractive enough.  My problem was that I was too busy trying to be ‘enough’ in all these areas, and look after everyone else, that I didn’t even know that I could have a better life.  A life that was filled with love, laughter and doing what I really wanted to do.

 

Learning that I could have more started me on the path of my recovery.

After doing my own in-depth therapeutic work I then trained as an NLP (Neuro Lingistic Practitioner) practitioner.  This was a breakthrough because for the first time I learned that I wasn’t actually stupid.  I realized I learn best and take in information by ‘doing’.  I became a Master Practitioner in NLP and went onto studying a diploma in individual, couple and family therapy
to continue my learning and personal growth.

 

I’ve been with my husband Steve for the last 17 years, and have 2 gorgeous step daughters that have brought me so much love and joy and a whole lot of wisdom on the challenges that combined families can bring.
I work both in the community sector as well as with individuals and organizations to support them to have the things they want in their relationships, their communities and their work through helping them improve their communication and their self esteem by helping build healthy boundaries.
