Hello, I'm Stacey

I'm a UK qualified teacher and counsellor, who had planned on moving to Queensland from a young age. After spending my pre-university days backpacking this beautiful country, I fell in love with the Queensland lifestyle. 

However, life doesn't always go as planned and in 2008 my eldest child died of sudden, unexpected, infant death. This traumatic loss led me to a lovely counsellor named Olive and the process was such that I became a huge advocate of counselling. 

I became a founding member of a local bereavement support group and I used my teaching skills to publish self-help workbooks to support families. 

My personal journey then evolved and I became a single parent. This was another very traumatic event in my life but I used my experiences and went on to train as a counsellor.  Mental health awareness is now one of my passions and I believe that openly sharing my experiences helps others feel they can approach me.

I've helped clients in many areas, from anxiety through to trauma and everything else in between. As an integrative counsellor I have different ways of working, but I always focus on my client and their needs. 

If you feel I am the type of counsellor who could help you, please drop me an email. I am here to listen and support. I will help you to help yourself.
