Hi, I’m Leanne.
I offer creative healing journeys using a mind-body-spirit approach.
I am calling all lost and wounded souls. Come out of the darkness. Confront your dragons.
Acknowledge your grief. Let’s begin your healing from the inside out.
Being a psychologist doesn’t mean I know what’s best for you. It doesn’t mean I see you as a category or a diagnostic label. It doesn’t mean I can tell you what you need to do.
It means I have the honour of you trusting me with the pieces of the jigsaw, allowing me to hold them without judgment as you sort them into a design that works best for you.
It means I have the privilege of shining light for your feet as you pick your way through the debris to create a path only you can create.
It means we become detectives together, being curious and exploring the dark corners, shifting what we can while accepting what is.
You don’t have to hand over the reins of your life to anyone. You don’t need someone to fix you or heal you or advise you.
But you also don’t have to find your way alone.
- a registered psychologist specialising in anxiety, trauma, grief, and recovery from adverse childhood experiences.
- an art therapist, because feelings cannot always be expressed in words, so I also use art to bring expression to the deeper wounds that words can’t touch.
- a writer whose words can be found around the internet, in print magazines, and here on my blog.
- a former President of the Eating Disorders Association of Qld and a current member of the Australian Psychological Society.
- an adoptee who has completed the Australian Psychological Society’s training on supporting others affected by forced adoption.
- beach lover, night owl, introvert, someone who has walked through the shadows and learned to rely on intuition and faith.
My professional background stems from my personal quest to understand the human experience. I am committed to going beyond intellectual processes to a much deeper level of creative and spiritual healing. Issues you might choose to address include anxiety, depression, grief, trauma, recovery from adverse childhood experiences, improving communication, body image issues and life transitions.
