Zenith Aligned focusses on you and your lived experience, meeting you where you are, and orientating toward your personal zenith of wellbeing. I feel it like the pull of the moon on the tide. Your wellbeing calls to you and I believe your inner tuition knows the way. My role is to be your soul travelling companion and counsel along the way. I will sit with you until you are strong enough to stand and walk with you until you are free enough to fly.

Every mind benefits from therapy, but not all approaches to therapy suit everyone. Zenith Aligned uses a combination of Process Oriented Psychology, dream work, creative arts, mindfulness, intuitive insight and nature -based play as the basis for therapeutic work. If you have tried and tired of talk therapy, and are looking for an originative and playful way to access your inner wisdom and process anxiety, conflict and emotions, Zenith Aligned may well be for you.
Thanks for visiting my website.
I like to think of myself as the ‘feeling good to feeling better’ therapist, mainly because I want to encourage people to seek therapy while they are still feeling relatively good and able to build a scaffolding of self compassion and awareness before a crisis appears.
Mental wellbeing strategy aims to foster healing mindset and build resilience for when the proverbial inevitably hits the fan. And let’s be real about this... there are times when it does.. at those times my role is more accurately described as the ‘feeling pretty shit to feeling a bit less shit’ therapist. It is my firmest belief that we can use these experiences to fertilise our healthy growth and that no one need dig in the bare dirt alone. I’m here with a bucket load of lived experiences, a family as random as yours, and the will and wisdom to find a way forward.
I have arrived here in this role after many years working in sustainable events and the arts. I am an actor, musician and mother, event organiser, Reiki practitioner, gardener (can you tell?) , venue manager and storyteller. I have done years of yoga, meditation, psychic reading, shamanic ritual and Tibetan Buddhist mindfulness practice. I bring all of this into my therapy space, like a big melting S'more of my life. It’s a rich and delicious space.
The corner stones of my work are compassion, clarity, integration and growth.
I work with adults, inner children and children alike in 1:1 and small group settings. I am also available to develop and provide workshops in understanding your dreaming, team building, conflict resolution and interconnecting self with surrounds. I approach my role as therapist from a processwork and dreaming body perspective through a humanistic, transnational feminist lens.
I want to see you rise up and shine, filled with a sense of ever-improving self.
I know that somewhere in there, you are a creative little being who just wants a friendly person to play with. Someone with whom its safe to share your weird dreams and wild stories... who’s ready to listen and help you work stuff out, who allows your child-like heart to shine while honouring the truth and wisdom of your lived experience. I want to know your story. What do you feel like today? Maybe we could have one of those transformative, informative conversations. You know the ones! The ones where lightbulbs of insight sparkle and pop and enlighten us both. We could sit in stillness and so-hum until something happens, or let’s just hammer bits of clay with a stick if that’s the only thing you feel like doing because that’s all there is to say. I’m up for all the ways you might want to free your self expression, because I know you have the most amazing wisdom ... even if you‘re not sure you've still got it... I reckon it’s still there, and I reckon we’ll find it.
If you have read this far, I think you have a sense of how I work and how I might be able to help you and I wonder if you are someone who may have questions about which way to go, maybe you’re feeling a little bit lost, buried in your work or under the weight of the world somehow... Maybe the spark you once had has evaded you for a while, but in my invitation to you to explore this space .. you’ve seen it flicker. Your creative soul is calling you back to yourself.
When our creative cogs get rusty, we can feel stuck and restricted and it causes a peculiar kind of dissonance that can lead to inner discomfort and anxiety. It manifests in your life as weird dreams (or no dreams), as conflict in your relationships, loss of self control and a disquieting sense of never feeling quite at home.
I want to work with you because I have a few tools and tricks to fuel your light so you can see more clearly the path ahead of you. I know you are brave... and a soul adventurer and dreaming wanderer, who recognises that by doing the inner work, feeling good can feel even better, and feeling a bit shit, will feel less so over time. Your soulful self is calling you home.
Did you know that even viewing images of nature helps to soothe our mind and bring us into a calmer state of being. This video is one created by Louie Schwartzberg- Moving Art.

There are a lot of varying terms in the mental health field that can be quite confusing because there is a lot of crossover. The list below describes a few of the key titles you’ll see in mental health professions in order of the length of time spent training for the qualifications. Please note that many people registered or practising as counsellors can have several years of high level and specific training, however, there are others who practice as counsellors on minimal qualification. If level of training is important to you, ask your therapist about their professional background.
If you imagine the mind as a room in need of renovation:
Counsellors move the furniture around in the room. Psychotherapists take the furniture out and look at the floor. Psychologists assess and test the room for pests. Psychiatrists treat the infestation.
Zenith Aligned provides psychotherapy, counselling and what we call mental wellbeing strategy sessions which draw on psychotherapy techniques, but, in this analogy, are akin to calling in project manager to devise a plan and oversee tasks.
In Australia, Counselling and Psychotherapy are self regulating industries, meaning that not all psychotherapists and counsellors are held to an enforceable industry standard in the same way Psychiatrists and Psychologists are. The registering bodies that oversee psychotherapy and counselling are PACFA and ACA. These bodies have set ethical and training standards and ongoing professional development requirements for their members . This does not mean therapists outside of these bodies are of less quality, but it does mean doing your own research into their level of training and suitability for you.
