“I believe in the wisdom of my clients. I believe that within my client lies the answer. I use my skills to create a breathing space for your personal wisdom and knowledge to emerge”

Counselling Philosophy

As a senior business leader, advisor and counsellor, I start from a place of understanding – understanding the challenges you face as a leader in a complex business environment. My counselling approaches help you tap into your strengths and insights to examine and strengthen the personal dimension underpinning your professional life.

My commitment to you

  • I commit to treating you with respect and compassion
  • I commit to providing you with confidentiality
  • You will receive a skilled, ethical and professional service from me
  • I will work with you to identify the outcome you
    and I are working towards together.
Whatever approach I use to assist you, I will always be
non-judgemental and compassionate.

At Breathing Space, you can expect me to:
Help you to be AWARE of your
emotional triggers
what’s going on for you and WHY
Guide you to find SOLUTIONS to a range
of challenges as you balance a demanding
leadership role with a full personal life.
As a member of the Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia, I am committed and
accountable to the Privacy Act and the ethical frameworks within which professional Counsellors operate.

What can I expect from Breathing Space Counselling?

Meeting a Counsellor for the first time can be daunting, especially if you haven’t experienced counselling before or if you’ve had a less than satisfactory experience with a Counsellor in the past. When you commence counselling with me, I will schedule a 30 minute informal discussion with you to enable us to exchange information and to generally explore your reasons for seeking my services. You will not be charged for this initial meeting. If you choose to utilise my services, we will create a schedule of sessions as required.
During our sessions, you can expect me to ask you questions about your current situation and your thoughts and feelings. It is perfectly natural for you to sometimes feel challenged by this. When you feel challenged by the process, I encourage you to express these thoughts and feelings with me, and please remember this is a journey and I hold no judgement of you.
