I’m Katherine, a holistic Psychotherapist and Counsellor.
I’m passionate and deeply inquisitive about life, happiness, health, and healing.
Like many practitioners in the helping professions, it was my own life struggles that brought me here. My 'dark nights of the soul' compelled me to find another way, a better way, as you may be seeking yourself right now.
I've been where you are; afraid, overwhelmed, stressed, anxious, in despair, hopelessness, confusion, turmoil. And I know there's a way out.
You're not alone. Though it might not feel that way, you're doing the best you can, and many others are struggling in silence too. It doesn't have to be this way. Time is precious. Let's make the most of it, even if things are hard right now.
Whether your own path has led you down a dark road that on the surface looks like mine did- coloured by your own or loved ones’ eating disorders, addictions, grief and loss, abuse, trauma, or relationship problems- the struggle is universal, no matter what form it takes.
We are all in this together.
I believe that well-being, happiness, ease, peace of mind, and inner freedom is always possible.
Hope is always warranted. Help is always at hand.
Let's speed up the journey, from powerless to empowered, frightened to fearless, anxious to serene, angry to loving, miserable to joyful, imprisoned to free. You're bound to get there anyway, so why not get there sooner?
I believe that you have everything you need to help you get through whatever you're going through right now. I also believe that we all need help to remember and reconnect to that deep inner wisdom ever present within us- especially when things get tough.
I know that you can feel better, and that things can become better for you. You matter. Your life matters. I offer you a safe, supportive hand to walk with, free of judgement. I offer complete confidentiality, compassion, kindness, integrity, and respect.
And the important nitty gritty details?
I'm fully qualified, accredited, experienced, and insured. So you can trust and dive into the process that you're ready to unfold, and heal the wounds that you're ready to extract the good from.
I have an undergraduate degree in Psychology from the University of Sydney, a postgraduate in Holistic Counselling and Psychotherapy from the Metavision Institute, and real world experience helping people from all walks of life in acute crisis through Lifeline's free suicide-prevention hotline.
For peace of mind, I’m also fully insured and accredited with the Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia (PACFA) - the peak national body for Psychotherapists and Counselling professionals. This binds me to continuous professional development, stringent ethical standards, ongoing clinical supervision, and ensures that my training has been rigorous.
Let's get through this together then.
Now it's your turn.
Who are you? What are you seeking? Struggling with? What are your hopes and deepest values?
Are you ready to shift things? Break out of and transform old patterns?
Ready to try something new and get a better result?
If you're willing to change your mind, let's change your world.
