Although I work with a range of clients, I work predominantly with women across various ages and backgrounds.
I am a mental health coach & behavioural researcher who works with clients to help them with their personal and professional goals. While psychotherapy tends to focus more on working with mental illnesses and healing from past trauma/ events, my approach focuses on helping clients to achieve future goals.

I understand being a woman of colour myself, and an immigrant, that both come with several challenges and adjustments that are required to then feel more settled in who we are and where we are.
Counselling with me would involve a series of conversations of fifty minutes each around a goal or concern. It might be social, emotional, relational, behavioural, or cultural in nature. Through my experience in counselling over many years I have learned that counselling is the space for coming together. Counselling helps to discover ways to cope with challenges and reflect to see a different point of view. Throughout this journey, my aim will be to support you, hear you out, empower you, help you gain clarity and understand you. A registered counsellor with ACA (level 2), and a provisional member of NZAC.

Hi, I’m Catherine Nyika, the Founder and Principal Practitioner at The Inner Shine Clinic, and I am not your average counsellor and coach. I specialise in empowering women and teen girls to overcome anxiety, 'imposter syndrome" and "not enoughness" so that they can learn to shine again. I will help you to see the light inside of you that you forgot was even there and teach you the tools so that you can keep that light turned on. You find yourself here because you are searching for answers. Inner peace and freedom seems out of reach and other things haven't helped. You now recognise it's time to start to heal from the inside out.

The Empty Cradle supports involuntary childless women to grieve the loss of motherhood and create lives of connection, meaning and joy. As lived experience counsellors we understand childlessness can leave women feeling broken hearted and excluded from the world of children, mothers and families. We can experience profound grief, shame, diminished self worth, struggle for meaning and purpose, and impact on interpersonal relationships. There can be regrets, bereavement, losses and ongoing trauma. We support women to develop esteem, confidence and competence to navigate this difficult terrain and gently create a new vision for life.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Sydney?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Sydney specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
