Janice aims to empower and encourage clients as they explore issues of concern to them, and works collaboratively with clients to implement changes.

Janice’s counselling practice draws on her extensive experience as a social worker in a range of hospital and community settings, assisting individuals and families impacted by issues of ill health, disability, family violence, social disadvantage, stress, anxiety, depression, isolation and a range of other challenges. It also draws on her years of working supportively with carers, her work in a family violence program, and her ongoing lived experience as a carer.

As a contracted counsellor for the Family Relationship Support for Carers program, Janice can provide funded short-term counselling for eligible carers, at no cost to them.

Janice’s areas of interest are:

Personal counselling
Carer counselling
Grief and Loss
