My main area of specialization as a counsellor is working with 5 – 25 year olds. My experience includes working as a counsellor and educator in community agencies like Lifeline, Presbyterian Support, Catholic Care, Man Alive etc. I also contract to all levels of the state education system from preschool through to tertiary level institutions. This is mostly as a relief school teacher and counsellor or mentor for special needs children. For young children play therapy is fun and effective and actively involves parents and care givers.
