Sonya is a skilled professional counsellor with over 20 years of experience, supporting adults, adolescents, children, and families. Sonya is registered with the Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia and supports clients with a vast array of concerns working from a trauma informed perspective.
Sonya’s warm and empathetic approach encourages her clients to be at ease, as she creates a safe environment for them to collaboratively 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 strengthened in understanding of their individual choice. Sonya is committed to help her clients become self-aware, as she believes that understanding yourself is an important part of counselling and being able to create positive change.
Sonya insightfully supports clients as they negotiate life’s transitions and losses, encouraging them as they heal, change, and grow to live a fulfilling and creative life. With her guidance, Sonya can help you achieve this by drawing on her sound knowledge and skill, and using a number of evidence-based therapies, tailored to your therapeutic needs. These include: Person Centred Therapy, Trauma-Informed Therapy, Somatic Experiencing, and Mindfulness-Based Therapy.
