Accredited Mental Health Social Worker (AMHSW)
Master of Social Work (MSW)
Graduate Diploma of Counselling
Di is an Accredited Mental Health Social Worker and holds a Graduate Diploma of Counselling. She is a member of the Australian Association of Social Workers. Di has been providing informal counselling through social work roles for almost twenty years and in a formalized counselling context over the past three years – as an employee and in private practice. Di has worked in the community sector and within these roles she has gained significant experience in addressing the mental health needs of women, men, adolescents, children, and relationship issues within families.
Di is a warm and grounded counsellor, able to connect with clients of diverse backgrounds and motivations for attending counselling. She prioritizes the relationship and trust required for people to feel comfortable within the counselling space, enabling clients to explore issues that are creating distress or difficulties within their lives. Di will work with clients to identify what they hope to achieve from attending counselling, and tailor interventions to meet their individual needs. Di focuses on the strengths within the person and their capacity to overcome the challenges they have experienced, with support and connection. She believes that sometimes having someone really hear your story is the first step to creating a happier life or where you can begin to regain power over your present and future.
Dependent upon the identified issues, Di uses strategies drawn from trauma theory, grief counselling, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, crisis interventions, narrative techniques, cognitive behavioural therapy, and other modalities. She will ensure that clients are comfortable with and find value in the methods used. It is important to Di that her clients have a safe space that is dedicated to their needs.
