I’m Rachel and I grew up on the New South Wales North Coast.

After graduating with a degree in Social Work, I worked with Children, Young People and Families for many years. In this work I hit a defining moment where I wanted to find answers for people, which would bring lasting, positive change. I have invested many years now, into that pursuit.

I am passionate about offering you the best of what the world has to offer in supporting you to make the changes you are looking for in your life.

I will create a safe place for you and your loved ones.

In the process I will be committed to you , your goals, celebrating your successes and supporting you to find solutions to your life.  I won’t be taking a stab in the dark with you, over your life.

I have a clear map which we can follow, which is evidence- based, showing us what direction to head in, for long-lasting change. If I don’t have the right answers, I will try to find them for you or refer you to another person who might help.
