Do you feel like you are lost in a wilderness of loss and grief and fed up with people telling you to get over it? Have you lost your direction and not sure where you are heading, not living your values and not going anywhere, going in circles, or going backwards? Do you feel that home or work is not how you would like it to be? Do you feel overwhelmed with commitments, a never ending to-do-list and feel in a brain fog? Through counselling, coaching and consulting I can help you to honour your loss, rebuild your life, find your place to meet, acknowledge and accept where you are and where you might want to be.
Perhaps you are dealing with grief or bereavement, chronic illness or disability, are having relationship difficulties or are struggling with anxiety and depression.

I work with a wide range of people and issues, always starting from where you are at. I believe that when you feel supported, positive change can occur.
My name is Jess Lovell. I am an art therapist with Elementa Psychology. I create a safe, warm and welcoming space for art making and meaning to be explored. I am able to work with clients experiencing anxiety, depression, life transitions, grief, loss, trauma, pre and post natal adjustment. I facilitate art making processes which support gentle unpacking of emotions and experiences to make sense of where you've been, where you are now and where you want to go. Art therapy provides an opportunity for you to connect with self in order for deeper understandings to emerge.

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.

Hello I am Rachel Pergolini (she/her), and I am a Registered Counsellor. I offer a holistic and intuitive approach to counselling, exploring the root causes of mental health issues, by individually tailoring psychological theories to the person. I tailor this from a person-centred lens. I have a compassionate and warming approach when working with people. I believe that therapy needs to address all aspects of a person (mind, body, and spirit), to support individuals in developing a deeper awareness and understanding of themselves to work through any personal difficulties.

Are you feeling overwhelmed by the challenges of your disability or new medical diagnosis? Disability and medical diagnosis can cause deep levels of distress, uncertainty, fear and overwhelm. It is a time when lots of new medical information is being presented bringing up both familiar and unfamiliar feelings. This makes it difficult to absorb and unpack information, manage daily tasks, get quality sleep and mobilise. If you have have lived with a disability for some time you might be struggling with a new challenging life moment that is impacting on your happiness and quality of life.
I am a psychotherapist, counsellor and educator who works with adults who are struggling with disordered eating, difficulties with alcohol or substances and challenges in relationships. Many people who are having difficulties with food, substances or in their relationships will often make resolutions towards change. When these don't work out their sense of trust in themselves can be eroded. It can be difficult to feel a sense of hope for your future when in this space and life can feel chaotic. I use a holistic & trauma-informed approach to gently explore and work through some of the underlying causes of these difficulties.
