Clients will receive acceptance , warmth and compassion.
From time to time, we all face challenges and experience change throughout different stages of our lives. But for many of us, sometimes it might be more difficult than usual to cope or find our way. Perhaps you are feeling lost because the life you currently lead is not what you had imagined it would be? Or it could be that you are facing an overwhelming situation, or 'stuck' in a relationship that creates major stress. You may have been struggling with anxiety, depression, loss or other significant life transitions for some time, and now need help. At Safe Place Counselling, you do not need to deal with life’s challenges alone.

I am an engaging and non-judgemental counsellor with experience in helping clients build skills to cope with anxiety, depression, addiction, and more. I am particularly interested in working with people navigating non-traditional relationships (polyamory, open relationships, kink/fetish, etc.), as well as relationship and intimacy issues. I am experienced with non-monogamy and I am in my final year of studying a degree in psychosexual therapy to become a certified sex therapist. I have helped clients through teaching skills to handle their problems or by giving them space to vent.

I use CBT, EMDR and ACT to support people to improve their mental health, connection with their partners, children, family and friends.
Feeling stuck, overwhelmed, sad, stressed or anxious? Maybe you’re having relationship issues or struggling to get through the day, like you just don't have your regular oomph. Sometimes just getting through the day can seem tough. It’s enough to make anyone feel like curling up on the couch with the dog, Netflix and avoid facing the day. I recognise how difficult and scary this can be and I am here to help.

I have a passionate interest in helping people to explore their life concerns with compassion and open-mindedness. By understanding our own thoughts, feelings and sensations better and getting in touch with our heart felt values, we can explore how to live our lives more authentically. Often our very own 'inner critic' can get in the way of us living our best lives, and I use evidenced based skills from Mindful Self Compassion training to help my clients to become their own coaches and advocates. I am able to sit deeply with difficult emotions and allow a safe space for clients to open up and express themselves fully.

Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Counsellors
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a type of psychotherapy that helps you accept the difficulties that come with life. ACT is a form of mindfulness based therapy, theorising that greater well-being can be attained by overcoming negative thoughts and feelings. Essentially, ACT looks at your character traits and behaviours to assist you in reducing avoidant coping styles. ACT also addresses your commitment to making changes, and what to do about it when you can't stick to your goals.

If you're looking for ACT therapy in Yea or for a Yea ACT counsellor these professionals provide acceptance and commitment therapy, ACT group therapy, ACT therapy, and acceptance commitment therapy. They include ACT therapists, ACT psychologists, ACT psychotherapists and ACT counsellors.
