My aim is to support, educate and transform people’s lives starting at the level of the PERSONALITY.
Without addressing and integrating aspects of our personality, our histories, and our vulnerability, we will come up against repeated symptoms of disease in our emotional states, our physical health, our intimate relationships and therefore our LIFE.
I trained in New York as a Schema Therapist in 2011 with the founder of Schema Therapy, Dr. Jeffrey Young, along with Wendy Behary, from the New York and New Jersey Schema Therapy Institutes, and I have been providing training to other health professionals in Schema Therapy in Australia since 2012. I have worked with many people to bring deep, transformative change into their lives by exploring aspects of the personality. I use imagery rescripting and chairwork to bring my clients back in touch with disconnected parts of the self, so that they can achieve inner harmony and gain clarity about their life direction.
I have been providing therapy to clients at a clinic at Mermaid Beach on the Gold Coast since 2009, and in early 2020 I stopped taking new therapy referrals as I made the shift into mentoring and coaching other therapists in emotional wellbeing and healthy intimate relationships.
In 2019, I developed The Wellbeing Codes with my business partner, where we have taken the 18 maladaptive schemas from childhood described by Dr. Jeffrey Young, and developed specific healing pathways towards 6 positive wellbeing outcomes: Connection, Confidence, Optimism, Self-Appreciation, Fairness and Self-Discipline.
I also coach and mentor women who are wanting to create thriving intimate relationships with a partner, and can identify that they have certain schemas or ingrained patterns that are blocking their experience of greater levels of joy, delight, sensuality, and connection.
If you are a health professional and you would like to talk to me about coaching or mentoring in wellbeing and positive psychology from a Schema Therapy perspective, either for your own self-development or in your professional work, please feel free to schedule in a call with me here
