Welcome! "Evolution of Intimacy" is a culmination of many years training, studying and exploring. I live in Cairns in Tropical Far North Queensland Australia and am close to finishing my Masters of Sexology. I have a Degree in Behavioural Science, Diploma in Transpersonal Counselling, Graduate Diploma in Emotionally Focused Therapy, Diploma of Leadership and Management, Certificate in Addiction Studies and a Certificate in Psychedelic Assisted Therapy.
I am Accredited with the Australian Counselling Association- Level 4. As part of the Mind Medicine Australia team I offer Psychedelic Integration sessions and I am an Accredited Clinical Counselling Supervisor with the Australian College of Supervisors.
I currently manage the Cairns Sexual Assault Service during business hours. Prior to this I worked at Relationships Australia for 4 years as a relationship counsellor and trauma therapist. Further back in my career I worked as mental health coach, Drug and Alcohol Counsellor and group facilitator and when I first moved to the region I owned and operated the Port Douglas Happy Herb Shop.
For 10 years in my 20's & 30's I dedicated myself to learning about Yoga and Spirituality and completed a suite of Tantra, Yoga, Meditation and Energy Work Teacher Training programs and Accreditations.
In working with people I draw upon my experience with various modalities such as Transpersonal Work, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Emotional Freedom Technique, Trauma Informed Therapy, Grief Work, Motivational Interviewing, Narrative Therapy and Client Centred practice and am currently training in EMDR.
Sessions are for anyone looking for support and guidance in their lives.
