About

TaylorMade Counselling has been designed to work with people of all ages who are looking for a comfortable and safe environment to have life changing, meaningful and practical conversations. The TaylorMade journey began with a single goal; to be able to connect with people and to support them to reconnect with themselves. I wanted TaylorMade to be about empowering people who are experiencing challenges, to encourage them to look at their lives from different angles, to reframe their thinking, to recognise and acknowledge their strengths and triumphs, in order to facilitate them to make positive changes, so that they can lead happy and fulfilling lives.
My name is Linda Taylor and I am a Counsellor and Social Worker with over fifteen years experience. I have both my Bachelor and Masters in Social Work and I am an Accredited Mental Health Social Worker, registered with the Australian Association of Social Workers. I have extensive experience across a broad range of social work and counselling sectors including youth justice, family violence, sexual assault, child protection, the Indigenous community, defence, the veteran community, mental health, training and professional development, hospitals, international development and child protection.
The focus of TaylorMade is to help individuals heal, energise, and become aware of their inner strengths. We achieve this by providing a welcoming, open, and safe space, listening to your concerns and facilitating deeper thinking. TaylorMade provides an evidence-based holistic approach to counselling, drawing on a range of practices including cognitive-behavioural therapy, crisis intervention, , mindfulness and meditation, narrative therapy, attachment and trauma theory, developmental approaches and solution-focused therapy.
