Individual, Couple and Family Counselling
I work with a range of clients struggling with issues including, but not limited to:
- Depression and anxiety
- Trauma, grief and loss
- Mental health concerns
- Confidence and self-esteem
- Building healthy relationships and connections
- Adjustment to injury or other major life events
- Couple / relationship issues
- Parenting and family issues
- Chronic pain management
- Vocational and psychometric testing
Appointments can be made face to face, online via zoom, or telehealth.
In our initial session, we are getting to know each other. A good therapeutic relationship is paramount to the success of therapy and an initial session is a great chance for us to build rapport and for me to get to know you and what is going on for you at the time. We go through privacy, confidentiality and informed consent to ensure you feel safe, and informed about the type of care you are receiving in our sessions. We will discuss preliminary counselling goals and develop plans for therapy and ongoing sessions. You can ask questions about the services I provide and how I can best support you.
For couples, an initial session is required for both parties individually, prior to commencing therapy as a group. This can also be helpful when working with children or families as it is often difficult for individual parties to open up and be transparent with the therapist with the other parties in the room.
If you have any concerns about what service is right for you – please contact Life In Colour for a free 15-minute phone consultation to see if you feel comfortable, and to address any initial concerns you may have. We can also discuss whether face-to-face or telehealth is the best fit for you.
Disclaimer: Please note that Life in Colour is not a crisis support centre and we are not available 24/7 to respond to crisis. Counsellors are trained in assessing and responding to risk in session and can provide support and referrals for after-hours support where necessary.
