The more complex our lives become, the more an individual need for simplifying life arises. Unfortunately, there seems to be an unending increase in complexity and information overload, combined with added pressures from employers, financial commitments, social expectations and physical and mental health issues.
As a result, depression, anxiety, trauma and various other stress-related issues have been steadily on the rise. In Australia, nearly half the population will experience mental ill-health or mental illness at some stage of their lives (statistic: Black Dog Institute).
Eastern Mindfulness orientated wisdom has long been beneficial in restoring and maintaining mental health, and Western psychology and counselling approaches are more and more integrating advances in brain-science with Mindfulness based interventions -with excellent results.
I have made it my career’s purpose since 2005 to assist my clients with alleviating symptoms of -specifically- depression, anxiety, stress and mental ill-health and feeling more in balance, both in clients’ careers and private lives. I focus on simplifying life, using Mindfulness in formal (meditation) and informal (living mindfully) ways. Mindfulness integrated CBT (www.mindfulness.net.au) and Solution Focused Therapy are two of the main modalities I apply in my practice.
With a background in Business and Commercial Law, I also work with organisations, providing Counselling Training, Critical Incident Debriefing, Employee Assistance Programs Counselling, Employability Skills Training and Vocational Counselling.
