I have spent a number of years working with sexual assault survivors, and use a similar therapeutic approach to birth trauma counselling.
What is birth trauma? "During the birth I was confused, frightened, and isolated; I felt no-one listened to me while I was birthing. When we finally arrived home, I couldn’t stop reliving it. I struggled to fall asleep and would then have nightmares that I was back in the birth suite. I felt sad and guilty about the way my beautiful baby arrived in the world and I struggled to connect with him. On top of all that, breastfeeding was a nightmare! I didn’t know what was wrong with me… I was scared that I was missing the ‘Mum gene’…" - Libby

Specialist areas: Trauma and abuse, complex grief, survivors of sexual abuse, christian counselling, grief and loss, depression and anxiety, health and disability counselling, relationship counselling, and general counselling.
I have a deeply-held belief that people don’t stuff up their lives on purpose, and that we are usually doing the very best we can. So I approach counselling with the idea that we have very good reasons what we do. In counselling we do deeper work - I believe that when you treat the cause, rather than the symptoms, then often the symptoms just take care of themselves. I’ve seen this happen so many times. My approach is warm, compassionate, and very calm and gentle. Also, we often laugh during my sessions. I specialise in complex work, and love it when I see people healing and growing. That’s when I do my counsellor happy dance :)

Trauma & Stress disconnects us from ourselves and from life, inhibiting us from moving forward and making the most of everyday events and activities. When our body feels uneasy, it gives us messages. The purpose of these messages is to let us know that something inside doesn't feel right and needs our attention. If these messages go unanswered, over time they evolve into symptoms; anxiety, depression, panic, attacks, digestive issues, pain, burn out, sleep disturbances just to name a few.

Sexual Abuse Counsellors
Child sexual abuse is the deliberate exposure of a minor child to sexual activity that the child cannot comprehend or consent to. This means a child is forced or talked into sex or sexual activities by another person. This behaviour includes acts such as inappropriate touching of a child's breasts or genitalia, someone exposing their genitalia to a child, fondling, oral-genital contact, genital and anal intercourse, as well as exhibitionism, voyeurism, and exposure to pornography.

If you're looking for a counsellor that has treated clients who've experienced sexual abuse in Brisbane or for Brisbane sexual abuse counselling, these professionals provide confidential support for individuals in an abusive relationship. They include sexual abuse counsellors, sexual abuse psychologists and sexual abuse therapists. Counsellors can help with child abuse in Brisbane and sexual violence in Brisbane. An Brisbane counsellor can identify the signs and causes of sexual abuse, discuss intervention and refer victims to shelters.
