About Me

I am the Director and Founder of a counselling and support service for women in the perinatal period. I'm a Clinical Social Worker with 19 years experience in the mental health sector, working across the government, private and mining sectors. I love empowering women by providing education, support and resources to ensure that they are well cared for through pregnancy, birth and beyond. I'm a Mum myself and I know motherhood can be hard work! I assist with the adjustment to motherhood, focussing on maternal mental health, changes to relationships, sleep hygiene, self-care and postnatal recovery planning. I assist women to make sense of struggles throughout this period, including loss of identity, infertility, pregnancy loss, birth trauma and grief/loss. I also love providing professional supervision to a variety of allied health professionals.
