I have been working in the field of missing persons support for the last 10 years. First as a counsellor and then managing support services that worked alongside NSW and Commonwealth Policing agencies.
I am currently completing a PhD via the University of New England on the role of hope for families of missing people. My most recent radio interview can be found here.
I am the author of ‘Supporting those who are left behind‘ and ‘A Glimmer of hope – stories of courage for families of missing people’.
I offer face to face and online counselling to people in Australia living with the loss of a missing person. Counselling can help you:
– To manage the anxiety of the early days of not knowing where a loved one might be.
– The grief of an unresolved loss when it remains unsolved
– The lack of community understanding about this type of loss
– A place to share openly about the person you are missing
Living with the loss of a missing person is complex because of the very nature of their disappearance – you might be unsure what has happened so your capacity to move forward is halted.
Talking with someone who has walked alongside many families can help.
