I have always been fascinated with and wanted to understand human behaviour, and why people do what they do.

From understanding comes clarity, commitment and ultimately, the choices we give ourselves.

And sometimes in the journey of life, you need an experienced navigator. I can help you travel more smoothly in your career and your life. I have worked in a variety of professions including hotel management, fitness, real estate, humanitarian aid and counselling. I am also a daughter, sister, wife, carer, friend and mother. In all these areas I have honed my skills to deliver the best and thought deeply about how to share this expertise with others.

I came to counselling as a result of these experiences and realising that for me this was the personally most rewarding way I could take my life experience forward.

I went on to study mediation to extend my knowledge and offer support to couples going through separation and divorce (FDR) and helps people work through conflict and repair relationships (NMAS).

I have a very rich and varied professional background. My work in the community over ten years includes being a telephone counsellor at Lifeline, Community Educator with PANDA (Post and Ante Natal Depression Association) and Counsellor at Hands on Health Clinic at the Sacred Heart Mission and I currently am a volunteer with Red Cross Australia and Ronald McDonald House.

I am a member of the Australian Counselling Association, ACA College of Supervisors and the Mediation Institute RMAB. I actively participate in a range of professional development activities.

Whether working as your Counsellor ,Personal Coach, Mediator or Supervisor I will offer you the opportunity to explore your thoughts and feelings in a safe, confidential, non-judgmental environment. Our work together will be focused on devising strategies and solutions that fit your life, your values, and your goals.

Together we will work through your current issues with dignity and respect.

This is my bond of trust.

“Having worked with Yvonne for a few years, I really appreciate that she listens with empathy and then helps me cut through all the emotion and worry to focus on what I can do instead on what I wish had or hadn’t happened. She really helps me with clarity about a situation. She has been a real resource in helping me to control my worries and fears.”

“Thank you, Yvonne, for the respect and understanding that you demonstrated during the time I have spent speaking with you. Your gentle and relaxed manner made it less challenging to speak freely about the very personal issues I needed to think & talk through. Your help will not be forgotten.”
Matthew

“I wasn’t comfortable talking about my issue at first but Yvonne put me completely at ease with her warm and caring manner. She was really interested in listening to what I had to say and I felt I could speak to her in confidence, which was very comforting considering my predicament.”

Neil

“I trusted Yvonne to truly listen and then guide me towards managing my life.  She never told me what to do although sometimes I dearly wanted “ the rules”. Instead, she helped me clarify what was important to me and then work toward my plans.  I found the whole experience immensely useful. Knowing she is there if I get stuck again is also very reassuring.”

M

“We will be sure to come back to the tools you provided for us. I feel much more reassured and confident that we can have a lasting and happy marriage.”
