About The Teacher

Hello friends.

If you are heading off on retreat because you have something going on in your life and you are hoping the peace and solitude will provide the answers, think about having a pre-retreat coaching session to clarify whatever is on your mind so you can make the best use of your time away. 

I specialise in crisis coaching.

I would much rather talk about you than me however, you probably would like to know what qualifies me to guide you? Two things.

I hold a Diploma of Counselling/Coaching from the Australian College of Applied Psychology which is recognised by the Australian Counselling Association and Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia. In addition, I have separately studied a great many different coaching and counselling therapies and techniques. I am also a trained EFT (Tapping) practitioner.

Perhaps however, what makes me most qualified to help you is my own personal experiences of being in crisis or difficult times. Throughout my life, I have made it through many extremely high stress and at times life or death situations. But, I did it the hard way, barely scraping my way out of the crisis until I finally created and applied the 5 step approach to myself I use with clients now.

Having been up close and personal with crisis myself, I know the thoughts, feelings and emotions you are experiencing. I can empathise with you and walk this journey with you. Whatever has brought you to seek help we can face it together. We will find the clarity, find the answers, create the direction and leave the crisis behind.  

So before you go away, let's have a session together.
