Thank you for visiting. I would love the opportunity to provide counselling to you. My passion is empowering individuals to live their lives well and fully. It is from this ethos and dreams of my own private practice that “Live Life Well Counselling” was born.

I am an Australian Counselling Association (ACA) Registered Counsellor offering compassionate care and support to individuals, couples, family members and care givers/carers. Counselling is for anyone experiencing distress from lifes changes and challenges. Counselling helps when you are feeling overwhelmed, anxious, sad, depressed, confused, exhausted, grieving or distressed. Take that next step and call me. My promise to you is that you will be supported, listened to and understood. You are not alone and you don't need to cope alone, I can help you.

I am a Ballarat born and bred local who for the past  20 years has provided counselling, education and support to individuals and families in areas of Grief & Loss, Mental health, Anxiety, Depression, Road Trauma, Palliative Care, Dementia Care, Family separation, Family Violence and Child and Family Services. I have a deep knowledge and connection to regional and rural issues and my work has taken me across Victoria and Australia wide.

It is also important to note that all counselling services are available Australia wide via Telehealth/telephone. No GP referral is required, although welcome and you do not require a mental health care plan. More information here re Mental Health Care Plans - Download - Reasons to think outside of (MHCP) Mental Health Care Plans for therapy.

I am also a registered counsellor for multiple private health care funds, the costs of counselling may be claimable through the following- BUPA,(ARHG) providers GMHBA, Emergency services health, Police Health Fund, Phoenix Health, Teachers Union Health, AIA & Westfund. Please check with your health insurance provider.

I pride myself on creating a safe, supportive and non judgmental counselling space for you to share, guide and explore the barriers that are preventing you from living life well. Counselling sessions are always individually tailored. We work at your pace, towards your goals, using multiple styles of counselling. All counselling services are person centred, practical, informative and supportive. 

Our work together is relational - The therapeutic relationship between client and counsellor is a key part of any effective therapy. Beyond expertise and techniques, this bond of trust, care, honesty, and compassion, is essential to a successful outcome of counselling.  I am committed to providing the highest level of care to all of my clients .

What does counselling do and how can it help me? 

The aim of counselling is to relieve distress, improve coping abilities, raise awareness and understanding of oneself and others. Counselling increases a sense of wellbeing and autonomy and is helpful with processing strong emotions and feelings. Counselling sessions with Live Life Well Counselling will include psycho education, strategies, support, planning and referrals if required.
