About

Dealing with personal issues can feel overwhelming. Are you experiencing relationship or family problems, personal issues such as anxiety, depression, loss of a loved one, low self esteem? Some people, especially men, find it difficult to ask for help. It is ok and a positive think to ask for help. Counselling enables you to talk through your problems and find practical strategies to manage or relieve your symptoms, and make positive changes in your life to move forward with confidence.
Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a research and evidence-based approach to help you to identify and explore the ways your thoughts affect your feelings and overall wellbeing. Chris is trauma informed and also trained in narrative therapy. Chris also incorporates relaxation strategies and mindfulness into her practice.
I have a friendly and compassionate style to help you to feel comfortable opening up about your problems without judgement. I follow the Code of Ethics for the Australian Counselling Association. You can choose a face-to-face session, zoom or by telephone.
