Wendy has completed a Diploma of Social Science (Counselling) and a Bachelor of Counselling from Christian Heritage College. A passion for counselling developed from Wendy’s working history in aged care, working with children and adolescents with disability as well as associations to community outreach programs. Engaging with a variety of clientele through a career in tourism, she has been able to comfortably interact with people from all ages, cultural and social backgrounds.
Being aware that there are many influences that impact on individuals and families throughout life, has led to a strong desire to assist people to journey to achieve understanding, growth and positive outcomes.
Experienced in counselling adults, Wendy has an interest in a variety of areas and believes that providing a supportive and encouraging environment assists the therapeutic process and offers clients the space to explore presenting concerns. Whether working with identity, unresolved childhood conflicts, trauma, grief and loss, relationships or intimacy issues, Wendy has a desire to focus on the person as whole being.
As a registered therapist with Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia, PACFA, Wendy is dedicated to ongoing professional development.
A mum of two adult sons, Wendy enjoys family time and sharing great food and social outings with close friends. Her hidden secret is that whilst she is a Queensland State of Origin supporter she was actually born in NSW!
