Over the years I have been fortunate enough to have the unique opportunity of living and working in the UK, Norway, France, and Sweden. From here I then went onto working for the United Nations in refugee camps in Tanzania, Kenya, Rwanda and Burundi. The life changing experiences afforded to me in my travels have provided me with invaluable lessons and experiences. It also fostered a keen sense of social justice that has driven my desire to pursue a life long career in psychology.
Coaching Rugby, Cricket and now practicing as a Registered Psychologist, whilst teaching full-time, have provided me the intellectual platform to diversify my skillset within the education sector. Having the opportunity to work as a researcher for Independent Schools Queensland, on multiple occasions, has cemented my commitment to being a lifelong learner and been a thoroughly rewarding experience.
My interest in volunteer work has given me to opportunity to work in the oncology ward at the Royal Children's Hospital, now the Lady Cilento Hospital, in Brisbane when I first started university. Volunteering has taken me throughout Africa and continues today with a local focus through my commitment to ongoing volunteer work in the local community. From a personal perspective, it continues through The Smith Family's tutoring and mentoring program at various schools in need on the Gold Coast.

My role at Our Space Pscyhology is to offer holistic counselling to adults, couples, adolescents, children and families. I provide therapy to people of all ages, genders and gender expressions, sexualities, and cultural backgrounds. Counselling is a personal and safe process that can involve talking about what is present for you, working together to unpack, explore and understand your concerns, providing strategies and tools to work towards mental and emotional wellness. Through therapy, you can learn skills and build inner resources that you will be able to take away with you and use for the rest of your life. Together we will decide which approach would feel most comfortable and work best for you.
