Announcement icon During Covid-19, I continue providing face to face as well as online sessions. My space is sterilised between clients for peace of mind.


I am a Hunter Valley based therapist and Clinical Supervisor with over 15 years experience. I offer a wealth of knowledge and in-depth experience of complex trauma, life-controlling issues, addictions and relationships. Co-founder/CEO of a women's rehabilitation program, Destiny Haven, our mission is to see the lives of broken women restored. I have received significant recognition for my achievements, including finalist in Telstra Businesswomen's awards (2017). I use proven approaches offering unique expertise to help you quickly begin to experience relief from life controlling symptoms that hinder your relationships and limit life
My unique expertise in recovery from life controlling issues including addictions, eating disorders, self-harm, childhood abuse, attachment trauma & complex trauma, cause me to stand out among others. I work extensively with PTSD & trained 5 years with renowned trauma and sensorimotor specialist Dr. Janina Fisher from the USA. Every day I help people shine.
My personal approach is open, relaxed, interactive & approachable, setting the tone for our sessions together. Overall, my aim is to put myself out of work! We will work to accomplish goals that you want to reach and you will learn tools that see results. Each of us is unique; so too is your therapy. I utilise various models & techniques to maximise results.

Janine Epere's Groups

Understanding Trauma

I spent a year post Masters developing this group. Currently run weekly within our residential treatment program, I am starting a group for people to attend weekly. Any person with background in trauma in or life controlling issues (addictions, eating disorders, self harm, dual diagnosis are welcome. I will help you learn skills to cope with anxiety related to "present day" triggers - actually related to childhood/early adult "attachment traumas". You will learn how to stay emotionally in a zone of tolerance rather than feeling you have no control over life. Homework from week to week must be agreed to..
