Career & Leadership Coaching & Counselling
The professionals & workplaces I work with often want support with work-related issues. We work together on helping professionals grow through career or role change & identifying opportunities & direction. I also help professionals with reducing stress & anxiety & building confidence & self-belief.
I can support you with mindfulness skills to be more present in life, for those you lead & the work. We can develop strategies for authentic leadership, personal brand, conscious career choices & alining with your values & strengths. I help clients build their interpersonal & communication skills, management skills & work life balance.
I am a Holistic Counsellor, Professional Coach & Mindfulness Teacher based in Glen Iris Melbourne, Australia. I often work with high achievers, professionals, organisational leaders & clients looking to advance their career or work through a challenge. I provide discreet support with navigating workplace or business challenges, change & growth pathways. Most of my clients like a combination of personal & professional development.
How Do I Work?
I offer single sessions, 4 or 8-week packages. Packages can be provided by workplaces for their employees as PD or as part of an EAP service. Packages come with access to online coursework, an app, follow up video & article resources & one on one 60 minute sessions in person or online. I offer an initial complimentary discovery call, sessions are confidential & I require you to fill in an intake form when purchasing a package. I follow up with an email of resources after the sessions. Sessions are held at my private studio based in Glen Iris (near Gardiners station) or online via Zoom. Email for a complimentary discovery call back or choose a package & book online.

Founder | Holistic Counsellor, Professional Coach & Mindfulness Teacher (MBSR).
My work with clients is holistic, present focussed & non-clinical; I don't believe in quick fixes to often complex & systemic issues. The process involves integrating the mind, body & emotions to foster healing, insight, connections, transformation & growth. My strengths are in holding space for the deep dive of inner work & providing creative, fiercely compassionate & wise counsel.
I specialise in the process of helping clients develop mindfulness & compassion; inclusive of the wider context of one's life, work & the earth. I am educated in Trauma-Informed, Mindfulness Based Therapies, Coaching, Counselling & Psychotherapies as well as receiving mentorship & supervision. I've been in private practice for over 15 years & have worked extensively in educational & organisational wellbeing & leadership.
Coaching is an art and it’s far easier said than done. It takes courage to ask a question rather than offer up advice, provide an answer, or unleash a solution. - Brene Brown.
