Liz works with Creative Therapies in her practice because they allow children to communicate, express and explore themselves symbolically, with more than just words, in a fun, playful, imaginative and powerful way.


Depending on the child’s individual needs, Liz uses various therapeutic approaches, including art, sandtray, play, drama, Gestalt, movement/yoga, breathing and mindfulness, as well as person-centred counselling and directed coaching. She provides children aged 3-15 with an invaluable safe and welcoming space in which they can explore, express and share without judgement or labelling.

You may decide counselling is right for your child for a number of reasons, including: if you have noticed changes in behaviour or concerning/challenging behaviour; significant life changes, such as divorce or grief; depression; anxiety; ADHD; ASD; developmental disabilities; eating disorders; stress; self-harm or bullying.


Liz also provides directive, creative coaching to help kids build skills of mindfulness, confidence, resilience and self-regulation.


Liz is a qualified, PACFA-registered Counsellor specialising in Creative Therapies. She previously worked with children for many years, including as a kids yoga teacher, the head teacher of a kindergarten, a behaviour therapist and an English language teacher. She has also worked as a Wellbeing Mentor in a high school, a Counsellor with young adults at a mental health clinic, a Lifeline crisis supporter and a Resilience Coach with Resilience in Kids.
