How can I help you?


Does your child experience challenges with emotions or behaviours such as anxiety, sadness, loss, difficulty coping with life events, low self-confidence, or mood swings?​

I provide a safe and supportive space for children to explore their feelings, develop healthy coping mechanisms, and build resilience. I also offer guidance and support for parents, helping them understand their child's needs and navigate difficult situations.

My goal is to empower families to strengthen their bonds, create a nurturing environment, and foster a child's emotional well-being.

The approaches I use...

  • Trauma informed

  • Art therapy

  • Theraplay

  • Emotional regulation

  • Attachment theory

  • Positive parenting – Circle of Security (COS), Playfulness, acceptance, curiosity, and empathy (PACE), Triple P

Can you use a Mental Health Care Plan with me to receive a Medicare rebate?

No, but my fees are reduced to cater for that. So the "out of pocket" expense is similar. 


What days and hours do I do?


My days and hours:

  • Saturday 9am to 5pm
