Simone Rousseau is a registered counsellor with the Australian Counselling Association and works with adults, couples and families. Simone’s passion in helping people and effective skills allow her to work collaboratively with her 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, but she will work intently to provide you with the support and skill development needed to ensure growth and positive change.
Simone supports her clients in a safe and optimistic environment on how to unpack and understand feelings, emotions and behaviours that are no longer helpful. She uses an integrative and 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, empathy and accepting nature makes her clients feel at ease which allows for a deep sense of self-awareness, cultivating a safe and 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.
Simone Rousseau has appointments available in the following location: St Ives
