Hey there, I'm Crystal – a mum, counsellor, and passionate advocate for authoritative parenting.

As a Registered Counsellor in Australia with a background in Child Development, Education, and Psychology, I specialise in Perinatal Mental Health, Trauma, Attachment Styles, and Parenting Support.

I'm passionate about Attachment Theory, and how it can pave the way for self-love, healing, and healthier relationships. From individual counselling to working with couples, I'm here to help you navigate life's challenges and find the balance you need.

Let's embark on this journey together, focusing on your mental wellbeing. Connect with me on Instagram @thegentlecounsellor and dive into the More Than Mothering Podcast for valuable insights.

You want to find a way to parent better, whilst meeting your own needs too.

"I’m already seeing the difference in the way I parent – I’m just calmer and have become more present in each moment. Please know that you made a difference to my world. It’s been a turning point for me" – Sarah

"Thank you for talking about this! 4 years ago I felt so ashamed because I thought something might be wrong with me because I wasn’t enjoying motherhood – I am so thankful this resource is now available" – Tania

"You sure know how to change a girl’s life! Over the past week I broke down crying in a big mess just not knowing who I was or what was wrong to now being able to articulate things. I have strength and understand myself more than a week ago. I’m listening to me" – Christine
