25 years of counselling experience really does make a difference. Having worked with thousands of clients I can recognise what’s happening for you faster. Reach out if you need support getting symptoms of anxiety & depression under control, tackling childhood trauma, trauma from intimate partner abuse, sexual assault or workplace bullying. I use both cognitive behavioural & sensorimotor art therapies (Guided Drawing & Clay field therapy) to rapidly improve your situation. Fundamental to my work is helping you to be more certain in yourself, better connected to yourself and others and confident in your decision making.

Looking for something a little different to traditional talking therapy? Often it can be hard to find the words to express how we are feeling or what is going on in your life that is getting you down. As a Mental Health Social Worker I use my traditional counselling skills and incorporate my Sensorimotor Art Therapy skills to add deeper meaning and reflection to make sense of the world through art , creativity and play.

Wonderful Mind - Art therapy & Counselling
Counsellor, MA, AThR
Verified
I am an Art therapist trained in trauma informed techniques such as CPT and draw from cognitive, emotional, somatic, and creative techniques to assist my clients in their journey of recovery.
Being a therapist is my calling. I am passionate about what I do. I have always loved listening to others’ stories and soon became fervent about exploring man’s behavior and responses to unexpected events. I have lived both in ease and chaos; and have learnt to explore my thoughts in different environments. In music, ceramic, in painting or in writing, I explore my own layers of self and reform my outer with every self-encounter. I believe we human are simple in our best, but to communicate we are far more complex. I have a deep interest in art and philosophy as it make us think deeper and see the reality from different angels.

My aim is to establish a warm and trusting relationship where you can feel supported, gain new insight, solve problems, alleviate symptoms, and develop your self confidence and sense of purpose. I take an integrative approach tailored to your needs; effective therapeutic interventions are identified collaboratively, and may include talking therapy, experiential approaches, art therapy , walk & talk therapy, etc. I believe real therapeutic change takes time and can offer longer term psychotherapy options to suit your needs and budget.

I use a blend of trauma-informed approaches (such as EMDR and DBT) and art therapy to help clients understand their past and shift unhelpful (and often unconscious) patterns.
My interest lies in helping individuals living with trauma, anxiety-related disorders, interpersonal difficulties and emotional regulation issues. I help clients improve their relationship with themselves (and by extension others) through developing a self-compassionate understanding of their emotional difficulties. From this place we move forward together to process "stuck" memories and explore the development of new ways of being in the world.

Stephanie enjoys working with people of all ages with presentations that include anxiety, depression, perfectionism, ADHD, ASD, and changed levels of ability. Stephanie is interested in supporting others through their disability, injury, or illness journeys and towards self-acceptance. With a diagnosis of ADHD as an adult, Stephanie is also passionate about supporting others with neurodiversity. She understands the difficulty in navigating the stigma, stereotypes, and misinformation surrounding disability, illness, and neurodiversity and believes that, through knowledge and support, it is possible to thrive.
