With more than a decade of experience working with children, adolescents, parents, and families, Christine is well-equipped to understand the complexities and difficulties that parents and young people face.

Christine is warm, sensitive, and compassionate. Her aim is to provide a safe space for young people and adults who have behavioural and emotional problems. By building trusting relationships with her clients, she aims to give them an opportunity, ultimately, to build better relationships with each other.

Christine has served adolescents and families for more than 20 years in various counselling capacities, including schools and charitable foundations, as well as in public and private settings.

She also offers Couples Counselling to those who seek to revive their relationship, or to assist those who are not sure how – or whether – they are able to move forward in their relationship.

In recent years, Christine has counselled adults in the corporate sector (through EAP assistance), including those who suffer from anxiety, depression, life/work balance issues, as well as career and work stress.

Christine is bilingual, offering assistance to Korean speaking clients, who might otherwise not be able to access therapy.

Many years ago, Christine left her work in the corporate sector to take up a counselling career, when she noticed the high level of cross-cultural and mental health issues affecting young people and families. She could see these difficulties were due to generational, cultural and language gaps.

Her aim is to have a positive influence on the lives of people in highly stigmatised communities.

She works with:

  • Anxiety and Depression
  • Children, Youth, Family Relationships
  • Parenting Issues
  • Couples Counselling
  • Domestic Violence Issues
  • Grief and Loss
  • Addressing Cultural and Language gaps
  • Managing Intellectual and Physical Disabilities
  • WorkCover Issues

Christine takes a compassionate and client-centred approach to her counselling work, combining evidence-based approaches into her practice. She has trained in the “Cool Kids” program, and she has been a “Tuning into Teens” facilitator.
She also utilises, as needed, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), the Gottman Method of Couples Counselling, Emotion focused Couple therapy, and Narrative Therapy.
