Maretha is a professional and accomplished counsellor who works with children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families. Maretha holds membership with the Australian Counselling Association and has worked in a range of diverse settings over the many years of her practice.
Maretha is committed to exploring and collaborating with her clients to find effective solutions and practical strategies to address their concerns. Her approach encourages her clients to feel comfortable, as she creates opportunities for them to explore their life challenges and navigate through difficult times. Maretha believes that each person is an agent of change in their own life, with the capacity to lead a fulfilling and inspirational life. She seeks to help clients gain insight into the underlying causes of their concerns.
Through examining the driving factors behind our challenges, and the underlying impact these issues may be having, she aims to help clients develop, build, and maintain strategies to effectively and systematically bring themselves back on track. This process can be very empowering and helps clients to take control of their thoughts, feelings, behaviours, and beliefs. In this way, the counselling process can develop into an uplifting and fulfilling experience.
Each individual faces their own unique difficulties and challenges. Therefore, each session with Maretha is tailored to meet the client’s personal individual needs. She uses an integrated, client-centred approach, drawing on many contemporary models of counselling such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Narrative Therapy, as well as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. Maretha looks forward to helping you gain a deeper understanding of your challenges and to facilitate an opportunity for you to reach your maximum potential and self-growth.
