Hello, my name is NAME, and I’m a member of the Light Mind Counselling and Psychology team. As a social worker, mediator, and counsellor, I bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to our practice. Let me introduce myself and share a bit about my background and approach to counselling.
Education and Qualifications
In my practice, I employ evidence-based, trauma-informed and person-centred therapeutic approaches such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), EMDR Therapy and Harm Minimisation. These methods aim to help clients identify unhelpful patterns of behaviour, take accountability for their actions, and actively participate in developing effective strategies for their unique situations. I utilise my studies and experience to provide a holistic therapeutic perspective to understand and address trauma responses in young children and adults.
Working with children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and their families is a special area of expertise for me. I utilise a strengths-based approach to foster independence, boost confidence, enhance social skills, and address behavioural challenges through Play and ABA therapies.
For couples and families, I apply the renowned Gottman Couples Therapy method. I’m dedicated to providing non-judgmental support to couples and families from diverse cultural backgrounds, including the LGBTQIA+ community. My aim is to assist them in addressing power imbalances, navigating parenting issues, resolving relationship challenges, and improving communication.
I’m accredited by the Attorney General’s Department to offer mediation services, particularly for separated parents. My focus in mediation is always on the best interests of the children involved, with the goal of establishing effective co-parenting relationships. I also provide post-separation mediation for property and financial matters, encouraging disputing parties to consider their current and future needs before making lasting financial agreements.
