Shop 55-56 / 81 Carrington Street, Adelaide, SA 5000


Vanessa has a number of years of experience running a private practice in Adelaide’s northern suburbs seeing people of all ages as well as working with adolescents within the education sector. Vanessa uses a person-centered approach and tailor makes each clients' treatment to best suit their needs. Passionate about different cultures and being from a diverse background herself, she can speak multiple languages and adapts this within her practice.

Vanessa’s qualifications include a Bachelor of Behavioural Science (Psychology) and Master of Counselling Practice. She has a solid base of knowledge of different behavioural and psychological theories and therapy techniques including CBT, ACT and NT, and is able to integrate them as appropriate. Vanessa is highly empathic and intuitive which enables her to understand people’s needs and assist them in a non-judgmental environment to understand their own thoughts, feelings, behaviours and how these interact to impact their daily living. She understands that people deal with their circumstances and problems differently, this underpins her individualised approach to treatment.

Vanessa's commitment in practice is always to uphold the highest ethical and professional practice so she regularly takes part in professional supervision and professional development in order to continue to grow as a practitioner and ensure safety in care.
