A Licensed Professional Here to Guide You
I am a qualified professional counsellor psychotherapist, and a registered member of the Psychotherapists and Counsellors Federation of Australia (PACFA)
With a Master in Organisational Psychology I worked for 20 years in the Human Resources field assisting people to find motivation and guiding them to achieve their professional and personal goals, often after major professional or personal losses.
More recently I completed a Graduate Diploma in Counselling at the Australian College of Applied Psychology and worked with families experiencing life challenges.
I understand how raising a child with a disability, chronic health condition, learning difficulty, or a child that simply requires more attention than others can be hard on a family.
When my son was diagnosed with a severe permanent hearing impairment when he was just 2 years old, I had feelings of being overwhelmed, of anger, of guilt and feelings of uncertainty: “What will become of him?”
The grief and sense of loss for the hopes you once had for your child can be intense and it is important to acknowledge these feelings and be able to discuss these emotions with someone.
