Feedback

Getting ongoing feedback from you is a feature of my approach to counselling. Without feedback it is much more difficult for me to know how you are progressing, what works best for you and whether or not we are getting to the heart of the matter. The moment you feel that things are not going as you wish please let me know so that we can re-direct the process.

I find the therapeutic process works best when we feel empowered to follow our intuition, openly express our thoughts and feelings, and especially when we trust one another.

My rooms are at Level 1, 279 Lygon Street, Carlton and you can contact me on 0416 117 861 to make an appointment.
