Diploma of Counselling
Ingrid is a skilled professional counsellor, supporting adolescents, adults, couples and families. Ingrid is registered with the Australian Counselling Association and supports clients with a vast array of concerns and has a particular interest in relationships.
Ingrid’s warm and empathetic approach encourages her clients to be at ease, as she creates a safe environment for them to explore their present life challenges or difficulties, and to help them develop an awareness of their own process. Through this awareness clients learn to be more authentic, empowered and take more risks in their relationships with others and understand that they always have a choice. Ingrid is committed to help her clients become self-aware, as she believes that understanding yourself could quite possibly be the most lasting and liberating experience of your life.
During childhood and sometimes later in life, things interrupts our process and we become stuck in fixed patterns and beliefs about ourselves that get in the way of life. Ingrid believes that everyone has the ability and resources to be in rewarding contact with other human beings and to lead a satisfying and creative life. With her guidance Ingrid can help you achieve this by drawing on her sound knowledge and skill, and using a number of evidence-based therapies, dependent on the client’s therapeutic needs. These include: Gestalt Therapy, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy and Mindfulness Therapy.
