Free Introductory Consultation

Successful therapy relies on the relationship between you and your therapist. This free session is your opportunity to see if we're a good fit. There is no obligation to continue. I'll call you at your booked time, we'll have a chat and I'll leave it with you to decide. This session is a one-off for new clients only. More details

Walk & Talk

These sessions are conducted on walking trails in and around Hobart. After meeting at the car park, we'll decide together which trail to take and how far to walk. I have plans for any contingencies - your wellbeing is my priority. There is also the option to bring your dog. More details

Sit & Chat

These sessions are conducted in quiet, scenic spots in and around Hobart. After meeting at the car park, we'll walk a short distance to a private spot where we can sit and chat. It may be in bushland or looking out to sea. I have options for limited mobility and plans for contingencies. More details

Online Session

When meeting in person is not possible, we can connect online. You can choose whether to be indoors or outside. Shortly before the session time I'll send you a link for a video call. More details

My Approach

My Approach

I am trained in a wide range of therapies, however I often find solutions lie in not just one therapy but in unique combinations. The key for me is to listen to you. In telling your story, talking through your situation, I can help you discover what you need to progress and what you have within you to do so.


Talking can be difficult. So, it’s my job to provide a space in which you feel comfortable. In doing so, you will find me authentic, responsive, and without judgement.

Counselling outdoors is unusual. Yet being close to nature, immersed in the sensations, and looking out over the ocean all have genuine advantages. The natural environment is grounding and restorative. In this setting, you can find clarity and be most receptive to the possibilities for positive change.

Outdoor guiding has taught me to be well-prepared and have a plan for contingencies. You come dressed for the weather and I'll take care of the rest.

If you're new to therapy, here are some tips for approaching counselling, what to expect and how to prepare.

Climate change and young people

In addition to my private practice, I collaborate with scientists and educators to develop resources to manage the impacts of climate change on young people. These resources are freely available via Facebook or the Curious Climate website.
