My Vision

 Is to Inspire Hope, and Transformation by Serving With Faith, Integrity,

Compassion and Competence.

Background

With over fifteen years of experience, working with a diverse community in various supportive roles, I developed a passion to help people. The pool of knowledge and empathy embedded in my services goes beyond the formal qualifications I have acquired.

My experience in overcoming extreme life challenges and walking alongside those both in need and those of greater strength has equipped me with empathy and the ability to develop personalised comprehensive care plans for my clients.

 

I am blessed to have overcome childhood trauma and found healing from grief due to multiple losses in life as an adult. As a mother of 5 in a blended family, building and maintaining relationships has been a challenging but vital part of my life. I utilised my experience and lessons learned to support others as a volunteer for many years before I decided to formally equip myself as a mental health professional. I  worked closely with diverse groups of people as a mentor and a coordinator and facilitator of a support group for over 10 years and have acquired a deeper understanding of how cultural barriers and stigma attached to mental health can prevent people from seeking help. 

 

I understand it can be daunting to talk a counsellor/stranger about your personal issues. The hardest and most important step is reaching out for the first time. The second most important step is finding the professional you can trust and understand your unique needs. As human beings, we have innate need to be accepted and understood. I truly believe people find the confidence to create positive change when they feel heard and understood. 

 

I  am committed to providing my clients with a safe place to talk about their challenges, where their
values and preferences are respected and they play an active role in making decisions with support and guidance. I take a comprehensive approach to work collaboratively with my clients to determine the root cause of the problem, in order to provide lasting change to existing problems and prevent them from reoccurring.

I strive to see a happier community by supporting and inspiring people to grow emotionally, physically and spiritually. It is my aim to provide a heart centred service where my clients are treated with respect and dignity. Read more

Background

My values and beliefs

  • You are the expert on what you are going through. and what you want, my role is to help you during the tough times by providing a listening ear and empower you through increased self-awareness and identify inner strengths.  

  • Authenticity, integrity and unconditional positive regard of the caring professional goes beyond their expertise. 

  • We all have a purpose and the inherent capacity to achieve that purpose 

  • Each of us has the capacity to make conscious choices towards change and to turn our lives around for the better

  •  Heart-centered support and care provide a lasting change.

  • Life circumstances have a way of equipping us to fulfill our own purpose. 

  • I agree with the scientific evidence and the biblical fact that our physical, mental and spiritual health are interrelated.

  • In order to enable life with fulfillment, we should consider the overall wellbeing of life.  

  • Everyone has the need to be heard without judgment and to be understood. 

  • Faith is something we all have, the type of hope we have depends on what we choose to place our faith in.

  • The expertise and all the strategies alone cannot completely change a person's life. It is the individual's personal choice that determines the ultimate change.
