After a turbulent beginning to my marriage, my husband and I started counselling and attended an intensive personal development seminar. This was a turning point in my life and when I decided to become a Counsellor. That was 25 years ago and today I am a registered Counsellor with many affiliations renowned for my openness and down to earth approach. Our marriage remains strong and we have not looked back.

I was the Founder of the “Desana Whole Health Clinic” in Wembley, Perth.
Desana was a Health Centre based on a holistic approach to health that brought together health practitioners such as GP’s-General Practitioners, Counsellors, Psychologists, Naturopaths and Herbalists. Desana also had treatment rooms for Collation and Ozone therapy.

I developed and co-facilitate the Lifeskills Seminar – an intensive program run over 4 days, every 6 weeks and have done so for over 20 years. The seminar has helped thousands of individuals and couples to take control of their lives and achieve a balance that they once thought they could not achieve. As the Lifeskills Australia director I was invited to facilitate in FMG Wellness Conferences 2012 to 2014 and I regularly attend conferences, run workshops and programs. Much of my time is taken up traveling to mine sites and handling critical incidents and other emergency situations but I still like to see clients for one on one counselling. I am also committed to continued professional development in order to deliver the best research-based therapies to our clients.

Life Skills Centre is partnered with private clients, community groups, education institutions and businesses across an array of areas. We are often called upon to service regionally located companies in the mining and construction industry. We deliver high quality, person-centered therapy, programs and workshops to employees, management and our community.
