I am passionate about the work I do. I love supporting clients in need, who are experiencing or have experienced hardship, trauma, abuse, grief and loss, depression, anxiety, addictions, eating disorders or stress. I work with clients to facilitating change through the combination of Gestalt Psychotherapy, Hypnotherapy, Resource Therapy and Astrology. Using this integrative approach, clients have experienced profound positive results.
My personal journey commenced 25 years ago. After the traumatic breakdown of my marriage, I got to the stage where I wanted to find my life purpose and more importantly to find me. So my healing journey began and I started studying in the fields of Psychotherapy, Counselling, Hypnotherapy, Resource Therapy, Transactional Analysis and Astrology.
I feel that bringing all of my life experiences as well as the history and learning of my own personal journey, I am able to bring compassion, understanding and wisdom into my work. It never feels like work to me as I honestly love what I do. Passing on my knowledge and wisdom is my purpose and I do this by teaching and facilitating groups and retreats.
I am blessed to work as a facilitator at the Petrea King, Quest for Life Foundation https://www.questforlife.com.au/about/facilitators
I have previously been on faculty as a trainer at Hypnotherapy Training Australia (HTA) and at the Australian College of Applied Psychology (ACAP), however, attending to my own self care and balance in my life, I now like to focus more on running retreats, mentoring and training other therapists and supporting clients so you can be the best version of YOU.
I look forward to spending time with you at one of our many retreats in Bali and Australia, where a safe, supportive environment for healing and transformation is provided. Working with an integrated approach, I offer support in a transparent and open way which enables connection between mind, body and emotions.
The following flexible and holistic techniques and therapies will be applied at the Passion for Living retreats:
- Gestalt therapy
- Resource Therapy
- Awareness exercises
- Role play
- Somatic or body work
- Art therapy
- Guided visualisation
- Astrological circle work
- Experientially learning
I am also passionate about supporting other Therapists and students with their professional development and self care. At Replenish Soulful Retreats for Therapists, there is an opportunity for you to connect with other Counsellors, Therapists, Psychologists, Hypnotherapists, and Psychotherapists. You can drop into a safe space where you can learn from each other, pull back, relax and have some fun. You will also develop new skills (PACFA, AHA and ACA accredited PD points) which will enhance your work and enable you to be the best version of YOU.
At Replenish Retreat each part of your system – your mind, body and soul – will be nourished so that when you leave you will have a clearer vision of who you are and your life purpose.
