Carolyn Burns

Counsellor, MA, PACFA

Carolyn is an experienced/professional counsellor offering help to individuals & couples. She works to help you reconnect with your authentic self, the person behind the mask, the diagnosis or problems. A deeply empathic & intuitive counsellor, Carolyn gently guides her clients towards self-acceptance, understanding & increased relationship satisfaction with self & others. Carolyn is experienced working with survivors of historical or recent trauma; e.g. child sexual abuse or family violence. At your own pace, she helps you find your voice, be heard & understood, empowering you towards becoming a 'thriver' & 'driver' in your life.

Carolyn is a qualified couples counsellor, trained with 'Relationships Australia' & 'The Gottman Institute'. If there is a widening chasm in your relationship, Carolyn's training will help you to develop skills towards improved communication and renewed sense of loving connection. If you are parents investing in your relationship, this helps your kids too!

If you are ready to create & open new possibilities towards 'lasting change' in your life, either individually or within a couple relationship, then please reach out & get in touch. I am always happy to to discuss your needs & help in whatever way I can. "It would be my privilege to witness you grow & expand into your 'true self'." ~ Carolyn Burns
