Each woman is unique, each circumstance is unique. I practice evidence-based holistic counselling that focuses on the whole person. I do not believe in a ‘one size fits all’ philosophy. I believe each person is worthy of dignity and respect.
I am a mum of two and have experienced the terrible two’s and the troubling teens and realise that parenting is not an easy task, it is a labour of love, to nurture and grow our children into mature, responsible and loving adults.
Sometimes we don’t get it right and as a professional therapist, I will give you strategies and techniques to help you through the challenges of parenting and other life difficulties to help you achieve confidence and peace and create meaningful change.
I have a Graduate Diploma in Systemic (Family) Counselling, am a member of the Australian Association of Family Therapy, a member of the Australian & New Zealand Mental Health Association, and certified online therapist with Australian Online Therapy Training.
As a Therapist for over 20 years, I have worked in community-based organisations, women’s refuges and in the mental health sector. I am a certified Parenting Coach and have delivered a range of workshops for parents in child behaviour management, facilitated groups for parents with an ADHD child and an Aspergers child, and have led therapeutic groups.
My therapy and coaching sessions can help you, as I have helped many women, through the ups and downs of parenting and the challenges of motherhood. I support women through grief and loss, stress and anxiety, family concerns and other life struggles.
I will assist you to lead a confident and satisfying life by giving you tools and skills to discover your best life.
I offer in-person counselling at my practice in North Ryde NSW. Online counselling is available throughout Australia including rural and remote areas as well as worldwide. All you need for online sessions is access to the internet through a digital device. I will explain how this works prior to the initial session time. Phone counselling is available throughout Australia.
I also offer the nourishing Cuppa & Cafe Counselling, face to face appointments which can be held in a park or a cafe. Women have found these sessions to have less distractions than at home or in an office. These sessions are in a less formal space, and women often find they are more relaxed and can talk more freely. Talk with Janice if this is something you would like.
Let go of who you think you’re supposed to be; embrace who you are
