Jennifer is a caring, empathic and patient therapist, who works with people to overcome depression, anxiety, stress, adjustment disorders, personal growth and career development, and much more. As a counselling psychologist Jennifer works by allowing clients to share their experience, then facilitating them to develop powerful strategies to overcome the issues that are holding them back. Jennifer uses solution focused and evidence-based therapies amongst others. She works collaboratively and sensitively with her clients to achieve a positive change in their well-being, life and relationships.
On top of her professional experience Jennifer brings with her extensive life experience.

Her journey has included working with neglected and abused children, women experiencing domestic abuse and people experiencing many forms of relationship issues.
More recently she has enjoyed working with clients in Retirement Villages and continues to have a special interest in healthy ageing. She also has a special interest in Trauma counselling and continues with her personal knowledge development by studying Trauma Response and Counselling. In 2014 she published a book ‘Write to Wellness’ while working with an adult group which encouraged members to use writing as therapy via self-expression.
