Background

Bridget has a background in senior management and consulting, secondary teaching and related management roles.  Since 2003 she has worked in private practice with individuals, couples, young people, and workplace groups providing counselling, couples therapy, supervision, coaching, crisis Intervention, training and group support.

Bridget says “I see my role as empathically joining with clients to explore their experience; to achieve their preferred,  hopeful, resourced changes to conflict, loss, anxiety, stress, emotion, thinking, behaviours, trauma and deep unhelpful patterns. I am passionate about assisting people to be skilful in relationships at work, as couples, socially, and within families while becoming all they can be as individuals. It is inspiring supporting clients working with emotion and mind to re-design their lived experience.”
