Peer support is at the heart of my work... I see it as a sharing experience where real stories can be told and comfort can be drawn from understanding. In the finding of common ground, shame is diminished and wisdom exchanged. Peer support is reciprocal, expressed as dual verbs:
~ helping/being helped
Peer support is usually defined as something that occurs between people who have the lived experience of mental distress. But given that everybody suffers, we are all potentially peers, able to reach across the abyss that only appears to divide us, to offer the gift of connection and in doing so, become whole again.
ONLINE PEER SUPPORT
My writing, art and videos have been shared on this website to assist in recovery, spirtual growth and transformation. Please enjoy the content, shared with much love and hope for your own healing.
INDIVIDUAL PEER SUPPORT
I would love to speak in person if that will assist you on your journey! I offer individual sessions, either face-to-face if you live in Melbourne, or online via Zoom.
The sessions are $140 for 75 minutes (see NDIS rebates below). I can provide a discount in cases of finiancial hardship.
Note: I find 75 minutes to be an optimal time for peer support, but please let me know if you have different needs.
I am an insured, non-registered provider for participants of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). A rebate is available for those who are on a self-managed NDIS package. I have collated some information about the NDIS here.
Please connect with me if you would like to enquire more about individual sessions.
The word "broken" may not speak to all of us, but it was a word I often used to describe myself when unwell. Letting people see my "broken-ness" is still an important part of my healing.
