About Me

Hello, I’m Kathy from Tulip Tree therapy, a counsellor with over 20 years experience in community health services, having worked for both the government and non government sector in Tasmania. Trauma Support, Sexual Health, Alcohol and Drug, Family Violence Counselling, Homelessness Support and Child Protection Services are specialist areas in which I have worked. In addition, I have provided education, health promotion, community development and middle management services to workplaces.

Supporting my work experience has been a process of continuing education where I have obtained a number of professional qualifications with more recent awards including a Graduate Certificate in Somatic Therapy and Master of Counselling from Monash University. I am also a member of the Psychotherapist and Counselling Federation of Australia (PACFA Reg. Provisional 24813) and as such engage in regular supervision and continuing education.

I am fortunate enough to live in the beautiful Huon Valley and after so many years working in Tasmania's major cities feel fortunate to now be working in my own community.
