I support children and families where sexual abuse or sexually concerning behaviours have become a road block for healthy functioning family life. I am passionate about supporting families who are grappling with the associated shame, stigma, loss and grief. I am especially interested in supporting families that have experienced sexual abuse between siblings or cousins. I am also strongly committed to finding creative ways to educate parents on what prevents children disclosing (or adults recognising these disclosures), along with the ripple effects that disclosures have on relationships with family members.

Do you feel overwhelmed or are you finding it difficult to cope? Part of being human and living life, means that there are times when we need extra support, but it isn't always easy to reach out. Other times it's hard to reach out because we've experienced things so painful and traumatic that it feels like you will never be understood. This often leaves us feeling unworthy, not good enough and unsafe and burdened with a pain that can never be shared.

Freya's Farm: Animal Assisted Counselling
Clinical Social Work/Therapist, AASW
Verified
Hi, I'm Freya. I've been counselling for over 25 years, and a year ago started incorporating my animals (horses, dogs, cats) into my therapeutic practice. I work with all ages, and the people I work with are as unique as the issues they want to address. My clients are individuals, couples, and children. I have lived experience of neurodiversity (ASD, ADHD, Dyslexia, HSP) and consequently work with a lot of people who are neurodiverse themselves. My work focusses on understanding why we are the way we are, combined with techniques that foster change and growth, with the end goal of increased well being and resilience.

Psychologist, PsyBA General
Verified
I use a wholistic frame, inclusive of body, mind and spirit in my work as a therapist. I have found that working somatically can be tremendously revealing of inner gems that lay beneath the level of consciousness. They can provide answers, understandings, and can lead to living a fuller life. The use of your spiritual frames of reference in therapy can also bring meaning and can provide leverage for the changes you are wanting to make. You may feel supported to become more whole, self-actualised, self-understanding and accepting of the person you are.

My priority as a Psychologist is to provide you with an empathetic and reflective space. A space where you feel safe to fully be yourself. A space where you will feel truly seen, heard and understood. I am passionate about reducing stigma associated with mental health. Whether you’re a fourth-generation farmer or a first-time mum, there is no shame in seeking support- giving your emotions space to exist without judgement is so important. You don’t need to keep going above and beyond for others at the expense of yourself- you don’t need to keep “soldiering on”.

Clients often want to change their behaviour and improve their lives as well as their relationships. However, fear, trauma and past hurt can cause ambivalence. Counselling can help clients work through the why, how and what of making this change. By using a number of modalities such as Motivational Interviewing, CBT, Person Centred, Strengths Based and Gestalt therapies, clients can find their way out of the dark. 'Beyond silence, there is always Hope'.

Teen Counsellors
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence. Finding a teen therapist in Ballarat Central and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
