Christine has been providing counselling services for over 10 years to adults and adolescents across a range of concerns. She holds level 4 registration with the Australian Counselling Association which reflects her experience and training in counselling services. She is experienced in working with many people of different cultures and is respectful of all beliefs. She is highly skilled at adapting her therapy and communication style to help her clients feel at ease.
Christine is particularly passionate about assisting people whose stress, anxiety or depression is holding them back from their best life and achieving their goals. She spent many years providing mental health education to clients with a focus on skills and strategies to protect mental health wellbeing and harm minimisation for youth. She now incorporates this knowledge to help her clients consider healthy choices and positive behaviours and enjoy emotional wellbeing. She assists clients to identify long held narratives and beliefs that are not serving them well and may be affecting their behaviour, success and relationships with others. Christine supports her clients to uncover a positive alternative narrative that shines a light on their strengths and new possibilities.
Evidence based Positive Psychology is used to support goals and emotional flourishing. Christine uses many traditional evidence based therapeutic approaches but also enjoys exploring alternatives influenced by the client and their interests and beliefs. Modalities may include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Art Therapy and Strengths Based, Solution Focused and Person-Centred approaches.
