I have had great success in my areas of expertise. My main specialties are Relationship counselling, supporting women leaving domestic violence, and single parenting, supporting mature women through menopause, and life's transitions as we move through the aging process.  Also supporting women who are experiencing children leaving home and transitioning into the next phase of life.   

Prior to starting my practice my  background has been within the age care sector as a community care nurse, as well as experience in youth work , counselling adolescents & working with vulnerable people.  As well as running my private practice I also work within many age care facilities helping residents and families members transition into age care homes.

What is Counselling?


Ali's Counselling Services offers you a confidential, secure and supportive environment, where you can work through your problems, and have time to reflect upon your circumstances, without judgment. Family members and friends are not always able to provide an objective point of view which counselling can provide.

At Ali's Counselling Services we provide you the time, space & encouragement to explore and understand the issues you bring. While counselling is not magic or an instant cure, it can help you make effective decisions which will lead to positive changes for now & in the future.
