Counsellor, MA, ACA-L2
I believe that the stories we tell ourselves shape our lives, our identity, and our sense of 'place' in this world. We can impact and transform our lives by exploring how we engage with our life stories - by learning to tell our stories in ways that make us stronger. Narrative Therapy, to me, is a respectful and hope-filled counseling method that connects a client with their agency and stories, empowering them to shape a different future.

I particularly assist clients that require therapy in the areas of anxiety, substance abuse (other addictions), depression and relationship issues. My focus is on working with the client towards personal development and goal setting. Each client is so very unique, hence, requires a personal counselling approach that is catered entirely for them. As a therapist, i work with various approaches such as: CBT, ACT, humanistic approach and TRTP (trauma therapy) amongst many other(s).
Clinical Social Work/Therapist, AMHSW
So many people feel lonely and disconnected. This can have many causes - childhood trauma, bullying, there are numerous factors. This results in anxiety, depression, sometimes suicidal thoughts. I value people beginning to see their own self worth, to recover from anxiety, depression trauma, whatever has caused them problems. Wonderful to see people starting to cope better with life, to become fully alive and be able to have meaningful relationships. Whatever is causing you suffering doesn't need to continue, do the work and start to recover.

I provide specific counselling in the areas of anxiety, stress, depression, and relationships; as well as behavioural and other cognitive issues, offering a wide range of counselling support to meet the needs of clients and an organisation’s employees.
Better relationships are life giving but figuring out how to relate can be tricky. We oscillate between feeling connected, then disconnected and we often get stuck in a cycle of misunderstanding. Want to improve your interaction and be understood? Need help to address uncertainty and clarify need? Want insight into why you're getting stuck? Need help to brainstorm options and change the way you relate? We all struggle and we all have issues that we need to address, so let's do it... 0404 480 316

Ararat Wellness Centre
I am a practising counsellor with a focus on Art Therapy, anxiety and depression and couples counselling in a private, fully-accessible counselling and therapy space. Experienced in providing grief and loss counselling, and trained to provide psychological First Aid for trauma. Fully registered NDIS provider for Art Therapy for NDIA managed participants (aged 16 years +), with the capacity to provide counselling and art therapy for self-managed/plan-managed participants (aged 10 years+).
In my Counselling practice, I provide a safe, confidential, non-judgemental and supportive environment to allow you to explore what is concerning in your life. When you are faced with uncertainties or unexpected situation, it seems as if nothing at that moment can relieve you of stress, anxiety, depression, panic or fear. You may feel helpless or in despair. I know all too well what those feelings are like. Sometimes its sadness; sometimes its anger; sometimes its sorrow; sometimes its regret; sometimes its self-pity and then ’Why me?’ syndrome sets in. Whatever feelings you may be experiencing, remember, there is a way out.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counselor?
Therapists, psychologists, and counselors are all licensed mental health professionals. In many countries, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counsellor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counsellors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.
What type of therapist is right for me?
Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist, psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counsellor who can offer short-term, targeted support.
Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?
The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counsellors. Many have been licensed by the country or state where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counseling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.
What type of therapy is right for me?
The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.
Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?
Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.
