Geertje (Gee) is an accomplished counsellor who is passionate about working collaboratively with her clients. She is a member of the Australian Counselling Association and has extensive experience in working with adolescents, women and children as well as families.
Geertje’s genuine and empathic approach to counselling creates a fertile environment for change. By working together with her clients, Geertje focuses on practical and effective ways to encourage positive outcomes from difficulties which may be stopping her clients from leading a balanced life. By tailoring each session to the individual needs of her clients, Geertje’s sincere and non-judgemental style puts clients at ease. This gives the client the opportunity to examine their concerns from a non-biased angle. Through empowering her clients and implementing practical solutions and strategies, Geertje can help pave the way to genuine change and help clients to achieve a sustainable emotional and mental balance.
Each session with Geertje is underpinned by her mantra of “walking beside you”. This client-centred approach allows the client to take charge of their own journey. A positive environment empowers the client and helps them to believe that change is possible and can also be sustained. In order to achieve this, Geertje applies the following evidence-based therapies: Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Solution-Focused (Brief) Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Therapy and Feminist Theory.
So, may Geertje walk beside you for a little while?
