I live on the South Coast of NSW, Australia. I recently completed a Bachelor of Behavioural Studies and also have a Diploma of Counselling. I have been volunteering as a Crisis Counsellor since early 2017 which has provided me with a ground roots insight into mental health issues.I have lived experience of depression and substance abuse. I also have intimate knowledge of 12 step programs and have been sober for over 30 years. I favour a person centered , strength based approach to mental health. I have always had a passion for assisting people from all walks of life in a caring and mentoring capacity. I hope you find this site helpful and informative.
