After working for over a decade in the fast-paced corporate world of Chartered Accounting both in Australia and London, I made the move to a more people-focused career and created a charity in Edinburgh, Scotland. I worked closely with children and their families to promote health and fitness, and this journey reinforced my passion for working with and helping others.
In 2014 I commenced postgraduate study in Holistic Psychotherapy and Counselling, and my love for exploring the body, mind and soul connection has led me to a career helping others develop and maintain authentic, fulfilling relationships with themselves and others.
My own path of awakening has been a central focus of my life for the past decade. Experiencing huge life changes shone a light on a world I had hidden away, of unacknowledged patterns and behaviours that were no longer serving me in my relationships to others, and most importantly to myself.
I sought answers in all corners of the globe. I’ve learned yoga and breathwork in the foothills of the Himalayas, sat in ceremonies with Shamans, learned Transcendental Meditation, walked through Spain on the Camino de Santiago, attended countless meditation and yoga retreats and consider the study of psychotherapy, spirituality and science as my passions in life. I bring these teachings to my sessions and continually learn about ground breaking studies that shape what we know about the body, mind and soul.
Integrating ancient wisdom, modern science and present awareness are the cornerstones of my approach to healing our relationships to self and others.
I am client-driven in my approach and have studied a range of modalities and theories to uncover and integrate all aspects of self. I adopt both practical and explorative techniques to access different parts of self, to then understand the patterns in relationships that may be creating dysfunction.

About Elysian Holistic Centre
My vision for creating a healing space was realised in 2017 when opening up Elysian Psychotherapy Clinic in Mosman, Sydney. With a broad range of therapists using the space for deep healing, we recognised the need to have a warm and inviting space to practice in.
Fast forward to 2021 and we have now opened Elysian Holistic Centre in Neutral Bay, Sydney. With more rooms and a large space for workshops, yoga or community groups, we hope to bring the community together to continue our dream of a thriving collective healing space.
