Somatic Psychotherapy Brisbane



Since I started working as a counsellor in 1996, I have worked with families, couples, individuals, parents and children. For seven years I combined my psychotherapy work with helpline counselling for children and parents. Currently in my private practice, I work with adult individuals and couples.

My work is inspired by my interest in the complexity and challenges of human relationships, as well as my curiosity of who we are and the mystery of existence itself.

Alongside my counselling work and exploration of different Western experiential forms of psychotherapy, I am also deeply interested in awareness meditations and Eastern philosophies as a form of understanding and exploring life. I have been a meditation practitioner since 1995.

Based on my combined interest in Western psychotherapy and Eastern philosophy and meditation practices, I have been studying and practicing Hakomi since 2002. Hakomi, is a Mindfulness Based Body Oriented Psychotherapy.

I am a Certified Hakomi Therapist, as well as a Certified Hakomi Teacher with the Hakomi Pacifica Team, teaching at the Sydney professional training program. I’m also the Brisbane Organiser of Hakomi Events, and a co-editor and writer for the Australia and New Zealand Hakomi Newsletter.

Outside of my professional life, I have an interest in sustainable living, including growing my own food. I enjoy fun exercise classes like Zumba and Nia, as well as nature walks and reading Scandinavian novels.
