Counselling and psychotherapy attends to many human conditions and is about reaching an understanding and finding meaning. This then presents you with an option for sustainable change … on your terms.
I offer individual and group supervision for counselling and psychotherapy practitioners and am a PACFA Accredited Supervisor.
Groups for First Responders
I offer group facilitation for people serving in front line occupations. This includes police, ambulance, fire fighters, military, and medical professionals. Groups are no more than 8 people and are strictly confidential . Groups are a safe space for first responders to debrief, share experiences, and address difficult topics such as trauma, PTSD, anxiety, stress and other concerns that come with the territory of the job. Groups are a space where peers can come together in a fully supported, understanding, and compassionate environment, to explore and make sense of themselves in relation to their work. Please contact Miriam to find out more and ask about getting on to the waiting list.
I can also provide a rebate through Medibank Private, BUPA, ahm, and ARGH.
On application; but having a limited financial situation will not prevent you from accessing therapy. Payment accepted by cash, direct debit or credit card. Please call and we can discuss your circumstances.

- Masters in Counselling and Applied Psychotherapy
- Graduate Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy

I continue to study and learn to deepen my knowledge and skill base. As of 2022 I am back to university working towards a Ph.D. researching how to support first responders in their working life.
I also attend frequent supervision to improve and assist in my own reflective practice.
I am a Clinical Member of the profession’s peak body PACFA (Membership No. 22140), and a PACFA registered Supervisor, as well as a member of the Institute of Group Leaders and the Jung Society.
