Simone Rousseau is a highly impactful and well-regarded counsellor who holds membership with the Australian Counselling Association. Simone works with adults and couples where her effective skills and passion in helping people allows her to work collaboratively with these clients, tailoring each session to their unique individual needs. Simone understands that therapy is not a quick fix and problems can be manifested over a life span, and she works intently to provide the support and skill development needed to ensure growth and positive change.
Simone supports her clients to unpack and understand feelings, emotions and behaviours that are no longer helpful. She uses an outcome focused approach to help develop a strong sense of self, and to gain clarity of the repetitive patterns that clients have not been able to resolve by themselves. Simone's compassion and accepting nature makes her clients feel at ease which allows for a deep sense of self-awareness, cultivating a foundational platform to achieve transformational change.
Simone understands that everyone has an innate ability and resources to be able to live an authentic and meaningful life. As an integrative counsellor Simone uses evidence-based behavioural techniques and theories that suit her client’s therapeutic needs and goals. These include Gestalt Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, and mindfulness.
