After seeing as much of the world as possible, and my world view changed by volunteer projects in Thailand and Cambodia, I ventured into my next life stage as a mental health practitioner, then a family violence specialist and trainer. This work has given me the priviledge of working with incredible people from all walks of life, all of them wanting to heal, to be safe, to live their best life.

This work also took me on an unexpected journey of my own mental illness which gave me first hand experience of the daily struggle, the isolation, the fear that it will never get any better.


I shifted between psychologists, self care plans were created and then recreated, hope was lost, found and then lost again; I just couldn't find the help to find sustainable change.

Then I found TRTP - The Richards Trauma Process, and it changed everything. I experienced such incredible change that I decided to become a practitioner myself, and I can't wait to welcome you on this amazing journey with me.
