Graciela Silva is a highly regarded professional counsellor with an extensive background of working with clients of all ages. Graciela is registered with the Australian Counselling Association and has vast experience working with adults, couples, families, and adolescents as a result of being in the field over 15 years.
Graciela’s approach encourages clients to feel at ease in the counselling setting which enables clients to explore their present issues and develop awareness and understanding of their circumstances. New knowledge developed in sessions empowers clients to regain control over their lives and relationships for the better which is achieved through the collaborative relationship formed.
Graciela is dedicated to seeing her clients achieve their goals, and develop resilience, awareness, and strength throughout the process. This success results in an overall improvement to emotional and psychological wellbeing as well as improvement in the client’s relational world. Graciela has a passion to see couples and families develop better communication skills and improving their overall relationship by working to identify blockages.
Graciela acknowledges that everyone has a unique journey and story. The less nurturing aspects of the story at some point or another may manifest through negative emotions and thoughts which impact on client’s well-being. Graciela’s approach is always centred on the client’s needs, and she draws upon an eclectic range of therapy tools and modalities, some of which include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Trauma informed Therapy, Systemic Family Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Emotionally Focused Therapy.
