About Amanda

amanda_full_res

As a passionate and highly-skilled therapist, I work to empower individuals to live a life full of meaning, purpose and joy. My approach is to work with compassion and understanding to provide my clients with supportive and relaxed space for my clients to feel valued, heard and empowered to make positives changes in their lives.

I strongly believe that everyone has the right to heal, and the potential to change, and that everyone deserves the right to explore the options to do so.

I also understands that every client is unique and employs a variety of specialised therapeutic techniques and modalities to meet the needs of each client. My therapeutic expertise ranges from Narrative Therapy to Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Positive Psychology to mindfulness with strong feminist and humanistic values.

I support clients with a variety of issues ranging from traumatic events, relationship and intimacy issues, anxiety, depression, mental health, grief and loss and transitional life changes. From feeling slightly stuck in life, to grieving the loss of a loved one – I truly believe in the therapeutic process and provides a place for people experiencing challenges to feel safe and turn their life around.

Alongside my private practice, I am currently a teacher at The University of Sydney and The Australian College of Applied Psychology. My qualifications include a Bachelor in Psychotherapy & Counselling, Masters in Sexology and Sexual Health, Bachelor of Journalism and a Graduate Certificate in Higher Education.

I also contribute my professional expertise to the media via interviews, advice or columns.
