With love first. Always love first.

I GET IT. Get what?
Everything. Nothing.
I dance in rainbow shades of grey.

YOU

I spend my time HONESTLY in three different work spaces that are all inter-connected and linked. The spaces are –

  • Connecting,
  • Celebrating,
  • Creating.

And the links are Safety, Relationships, Communication.

My qualifications and experience include being a Mamma, a Marte Meo Therapist, Speech Pathologist, Positive Behaviour Support Practitioner and also a Commonwealth-registered Celebrant.

So what does that mean we can do together?

  1. Connecting – I consciously take the time to look at and listen to your story. I can show you what it is. I can write it down for you. I can use video footage to slow time down so that you can see your skills, your next steps and your connections to yourself and other people. (The familiar buzz words would be assessment, intervention and training).
  2. Celebrating – I would love to catch up with you and get to know you so that we can plan your wedding/ naming/ commitment ceremony together.
  3. Creating – this is my empty space reserved for whatever needs to be created.

​Cancer Council NSW: LGBTQIA+ Cancer Support Service

We are Australia’s leading cancer charity, working across every area of every cancer.

We believe in a cancer free future. Every year in NSW alone, almost 48,000 people will hear the words “you have cancer”.

Every day, we:

  • Support families affected by cancer
  • Speak out on behalf of the community
  • Empower people to reduce their cancer risk
  • Find new and better ways to detect and treat cancer

Cancer Council NSW aims to improve the way the LGBTQIA+ communities access support services for people affected by cancer.

We understand that LGBTQIA+ people diagnosed with cancer have unique issues and concerns, and our support services are committed to meeting these needs in a sensitive way. The first step is to ensure there is fairer access to health services and improved health outcomes for LGBTQI communities across NSW.
