Caroline is also involved in a number of committees including, the Australian Psychological Society (APS) North Coast Committee, the APS Psychology and Complementary Interest Group, Co-ordinator for the Lismore Mental Health Primary Network and on the Steering Committee of the Northern Rivers Family Planning Network. She sees this as her way of giving back and supporting the progression of her industry for the benefit of all. All of this along with her continued commitment to people have contributed to the quality of psychologist she is today.
Caroline has a great love for people. Her ability to genuinely connect to others offers a truly supportive way of counselling and presenting, that enables her clients and those she is presenting to, to deeply trust and know they are being held in a safe and nurturing environment.
She offers no judgement or criticism, but a vast level of understanding based on the knowledge that life can be difficult and challenging and as result lead to behaviours or thoughts that are not productive to a healthy way of life. Caroline has a great ability to support individuals to understand their mental health concerns and offers a space that allows individuals to explore what changes they can make to support a more fulfilling and joyful way of living. With her over 20 years of experience working in the health industry she has a wealth of wisdom to support individuals deal with a number of mental health conditions as well as support those that want support to further develop and enrich their lives and relationships.
