About Debbie

I am a psychotherapist, counsellor, educator and coach and run my own private practice in Sydney, Australia.

It's my goal to support you in taking the courageous steps towards healing. I will accompany you on your journey and ensure that you gain supportive tools along the way. 

Difficulties, conflicts, wounds, hopes, and dreams shape our lives and have the potential through the lens of curiosity and vulnerability to find meaning and purpose, towards an awareness and away from resisting change. This engagement brings on a sense of security, willingness and an opportunity where you will have choices to help you thrive.


Empower Counselling provides a safe and gentle space, where you can discover your own courage and inner resources in moving forward.  

The therapeutic journey begins by an openness, a curiosity, to take a risk as you bring your own painful and complex stories, woven through your daily experiences in a unique, challenging and brave way.

You are supported through care and compassion to move towards greater wellbeing, joy, aliveness and connectedness. It is my goal to guide you to become aware of the challenges you face and to ensure that you gain supportive tools on the journey. do not espouse being ‘the fixer’ of your problems but the container.

Difficulties, conflicts, wounds, hopes, and dreams have the potential through the lens of curiosity and vulnerability to find meaning and purpose, towards an awareness and away from resisting change. This engagement brings on a sense of security, willingness and an opportunity where you will have choices to help you thrive. 

My special interest and skills lie with working with people of all ages and of diverse cultural backgrounds to help you develop healing strategies to deal with anxiety, depression and trauma and thus realise your greatest potential.
