Life is a wonderful and interesting journey but sometimes it can be tough. When you find it tough it can be hard to know what to do or who to talk to. The difficulties of family or work relationships can be overwhelming at times. If you have depression or anxiety on top of it life becomes even harder. Counselling helps you to see the problems you are facing clearer and what's more to see what lies under those problems, why you find yourself in this situation. Once you can clearly understand what is happening you can then find your own solution to it that will suit you and work for you.
With 10 years of teaching experience I have always enjoyed helping and educating people. But it was not until I moved to Australia and saw an advertisement for LifeLine Telephone Counselling Volunteers that I understood my true calling. I began volunteering at LifeLine Crisis Service in 2008 and joined their Suicide Prevention Support Service Program the next year. In 2010 I completed Certificate IV in Telephone Counselling. While volunteering I have completed my Diploma of Professional Counselling in 2013. I have started my own practice since then.
