About

Psychotherapy is a dynamic process that focuses on the mental, emotional, relational and spiritual health of a person and aims to help clients better understand the conscious and unconscious aspects of their life that may be causing disruption in their present experience. Brooke works with adults and adolescents across a range of mental health disorders including; anxiety, depression and bipolar, personality disorders, eating disorders, relationship issues, family issues, sexual abuse & complex trauma. Practice Locations: Torquay VIC, Sth Melbourne VIC, Online
In session Brooke works with several evidence-based models primarily drawing on the use of the Conversational Model. Brooke's approach is holistic, meaning it's not about focusing on one area or one problem, rather we explore a number of elements within your life to help you find equilibrium. To find out more detail about sessions please visit the website.
Finding a good therapist can be a really daunting task. It's important to feel comfortable & connected to the therapist you choose. To assist with this I offer a complimentary 10-15-minute introduction call to give you the opportunity to share a little about yourself, ask questions and get to know me a little better.

Brooke Cefai's Groups

Womens Conversation Circle

Women have been coming together in circle for centuries. The circle is a universal symbol that represents notions of totality, wholeness, timelessness & the infinite self. The circle, facilitated by Brooke Cefai provides a sacred & safe space for women to share, discover and connect with self & community. The circle is not a formal counselling group rather a small, intimate space for women to come together. *Due to Covid restrictions the South Melbourne group is currently not running. Torquay group will begin in approximatly April . Please email me to register your interest.
