Emily provides her clients with a safe and non-judgemental space. She enjoys helping her clients to understand past and present difficulties but also identifies and taps into her client’s inner-strengths and values.


Emily is collaborative in approach to her therapy where she encourages her clients to explore their goals early on in therapy, whilst providing direction and supporting future orientation. Emily uses the therapy goals set early on to help her clients move towards positive change.

Personal Strengths and Passions

Emily was introduced to new cultures and countries from a young age. This often meant that she missed week 1-2 of the school term. Emily soon discovered her inner travel-bug was an important part of her life – it needed to thrive. Emily resided in Singapore for a period of five plus years as a result of this passion. Emily has many fond memories of her time there along with first-hand experience of stressful life transitions and adjustment challenge relating to starting off new. Emily’s life experiences have enabled her in finding grounds to relate and connect to her clients, thereby creating a more collaborative journey for her clients and to help improve their wellbeing and life satisfaction in general.


Emily has more recently developed interest in reducing life’s barriers to accessing quality psychological support for all Australian’s at Positive Wellbeing Psychology.  With principles that were close to Emily’s heart including; warmth, genuine care, and integrity.
