Whilst working in the mining industry I started to study my bachelor's degree in criminology. I started to gain an interest in human behaviour while doing the forensics psychology components, and proceeded to go onto further study.
Throughout my studying journey I was diagnosed with cancer which changed my direction completely.
While going through chemotherapy I started studying a diploma in counselling, which further led me to disability support and working as a positive behaviour practitioner, with the aim of helping other people in need.
I started Two Minds Counselling Services with the aim to implement services in the local areas that gives a structured therapeutic approach that lines up with other providers working in a work group approach with the mind set of having a team working with a client rather than a single clinician.
I am skilled with Positive Behaviour and Counselling with experience working with children, and adults with high needs.
I am comfortable working with a varied range from children with ASD, to adults with anxiety and depression.
I am comfortable undertaking mental health assessments, including developing plans aimed at positive improvement using a variety of tools.
I have a wide range of understanding and experience working within the NDIS system.
I am a believer of training and development as an ongoing upskilling process, and due to this I have undertaken my certificate 4 Training and Assessing.
Throughout the years my focus has been on mental health issues and understanding human behaviour, and It is due to this focus or passion that has resulted in a journey of studying sociology (Bachelor), with a large component of the degree is focusing on human behaviour.
During this time I found the subject of psychology, and cultural awareness fascinating. I have a diploma in counselling and is also studying her master’s in counselling to build onto my understanding of mental health, with the aim to help others.
