Lissa McIldowney is a professional Counsellor who holds registration with the Australian Counselling Association. Lissa has worked in the field for many years supporting young people, adults, couples, and families to move through difficult events and circumstances in a life-affirming way.
Lissa’s strengths-based, practical approach builds her clients’ confidence in their ability to live around what happens to them in a way that honours their individual values. As clients become clearer about what is important to them, they are better able to understand their feelings and make choices about their behaviour that help them to move forward.
Lissa believes that the way we think about and respond to challenges and our circumstances has a significant impact on the quality of our lives and the strength of our relationships. Drawing on her own lived experiences and a range of evidence-based therapies, Lissa expertly guides each client to map a path towards what clients need. Her clients benefit from a range of modalities, tailored to their specific therapeutic needs, including Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy; Acceptance and Commitment Therapy; Solutions Focused Therapy; & Mindfulness.
