Engaging and connecting with my clients. I am warm and supportive and clients’ regularly tell me that I am easy to talk to, non-judgemental and that they find it easy sharing experiences with me that they have not been able to talk about previously. As such it is easier to get to the core of any issues and to find practical ways to deal with these at a pace that works for the client.
Also, if clients find themselves repeating the same mistakes in relationship, I am able to help them break the unhelpful patterns (or cycles) they are in.
I have a huge capacity to hold hope! I have walked the talk (I am in a very happy second marriage) and have previously worked in the match-making industry so am very familiar with the trials and tribulations of dating and re-partnering.
I have had a long association with MAREAA (marriage and relationship education association of Australia) and as such have been immersed in and exposed to the teachings of a broad group of international experts in the field of intimate relationships.
I have lived abroad and am comfortable working with different cultures and different ages.
