About Amber

Background and Experience

I have formal counselling education in client-centred, solution-focussed, narrative and motivational therapies as well as training in counselling for grief & loss, abuse, group work and couples therapy, amongst others.


Perhaps my best teacher, though, is the life I have lived and the lessons I have learned in my varied roles as counsellor, mental health coordinator, living without violence facilitator, aged-care support worker, teacher, kindergarten owner, wife and mother.
