    Ann is an experienced psychologist in Melbourne.  She is passionate about relationship counselling, and creates strong connections with clients and effective working environments. Her clients feel comfortable in the knowledge that they are ‘in safe hands’, which enables them to open up and share their thoughts and troubles. This then allows Ann to use a variety of practices and techniques to help her clients get to a place that is healthier and happier, and to depart her service to continue their journey on their own. Ann has helped hundreds of people in this way.

    It is of particular interest to Ann to work with people who want to improve their relationships. This has seen her help many couples improve their communication, resolve long-standing disagreements, overcome struggles with sex and intimacy, or ‘simply’ reconnect after having drifted apart. Ann’s interest in relationship work extends beyond romantic relationships to include extended family relationships, relationships at work, friendships and so on. She has also worked with individuals and successfully helped them deal with depression, anxiety, loss and grief, anger, narcissism, indecision, and troubles related to work and career, to name a few. Finally, Ann has led many group programs that have helped people to improve their self-awareness, particularly in the corporate sector.

    Ann likes to partner with her clients and engage them in decisions around the areas of focus, the duration of the work, how progress will be reviewed, and what success looks like. In this way, Ann’s clients are active participants in the therapeutic process and ultimately, in their own healing.  Ann achieves this with clients via face-to-face, SKYPE-based, and telephone-based meetings.

    Having worked as a psychologist for many years, Ann keeps up to date with the practice and application of current psychological techniques. She effectively translates what is known about human psychology into effective practice, tailoring it to the individual needs of her clients so that they understand it as it relates to them and can take it with them into the future.

    Karen is a highly qualified and experienced Relationship Counselling Psychologist who has worked in a variety of counselling organisations for ten years and has been in private practice for five years.  She is a registered supervisor and a full member of the Australian Psychological Society and the College of Counselling Psychologists.

    Karen specialises in Relationship counselling and has completed Doctoral research in couple relationship issues.  Her research considered factors that impact on the relationship satisfaction of couples with dependent children, such as their attachment needs, conflict styles and level of emotional intelligence. Through this research, Karen was able to identify important therapeutic interventions in order to assist couples to enhance and improve their relationships, particularly whilst they are facing the challenges of parenting dependent children.

    Karen has worked extensively with couples and individuals to help them through many relationship challenges such as communication issues, the transition to parenthood, family issues, infidelity, power and control imbalances, and separation.  Karen has specialist training in sexual and physical intimacy concerns and works with individuals and couples to assist them to create both a healthier couple bond and a more satisfying sexual connection within their relationship.  She also sees couples for pre-marital and pre-parenting counselling.

    Karen uses a variety of therapeutic approaches in her counselling work and takes an Emotion Focussed approach in her work with couples and individuals.  Research has shown this to be highly effective in helping couples to shift out of destructive communication and behavioural patterns and into healthier and more intimately connected relationship dynamics. Above all, Karen strives to create a safe and caring environment where the specific needs of her clients are central to the therapeutic process.  As a mother of two young adult children and one teenager, Karen also brings a wealth of life experience to her understanding of couple dynamics and parenting issues.

    Karen is available for appointments for Relationship Counselling, Marriage Counselling, Pre-Marriage Counselling, Sexual Difficulties, Anger Management and Narcissism.
