About Carmen

“Committed to supporting great relationships and fulfilling lives.”

Although my training and experience are important, I consider genuine support and care coupled with an open mind, unconditional respect and my willingness to share your vision of a fulfilling life as the qualities that will be of most value to you.

I am professionally trained and qualified with over 23 years of clinical experience in counselling and psychotherapy for individuals and couples. I also provide clinical supervision and mentoring to Counsellors and Psychotherapists.

In addition to private practice, I have enjoyed my work as an educator where I've lectured and supervised at three Sydney training colleges. During my time as Associate Director of Education at Nature Care College I collaborated in curriculum development across a range of disciplines and have a long-held interest in the professional development of  early career practitioners.  I enjoy supervising and mentoring final year students and new graduates as they develop personally and professionally.

I have been involved in business for over 30 years and am committed to working with practitioners as they develop their professional identity and therapeutic expertise. 

My studies have been extensive and include marriage and relationship counselling, individual counselling and psychotherapy, behavioural neuroscience, and career coaching. I undertake professional development training  every year to stay current with research and new approaches in my field. I particularly enjoy presenting at conferences and to alumni.
