As a counsellor I have been fortunate to work across a variety of situations and age groups.
I counsel adults, both male and female, of all ages including aged persons. Primary and secondary school aged children were key clients during my time as a Guidance Officer.
The use of sand tray and symbol work is an important aspect of my interactions with clients.
The main areas of my work are issues of anxiety, depression, suicidal ideation, self-harm, low self-esteem, resilience, grief and loss, and healthy boundaries.
Preparation for marriage and support for married couples is offered through the Prepare Enrich program.

Counselling and Pastoral care have been my focus during the last 20 years in my roles as a church Pastor and a volunteer for the Queensland Fire and Emergency Services.
As a Chaplain and Peer Supporter I assisted emergency service personnel with their every day life issues as well as recovery from traumatic events.
I use a narrative approach in counselling for depression, anxiety, trauma and grief as well as for marriage and other relationship counselling.

Roseline J NyaraBHuServ (Couns), Grad Dip Couns
My passion is to support people especially students and families through their journey of tough situations.
I have worked in the education and community service sectors for years both overseas and here in Australia, therefore have learnt to listen to individual stories in many languages.
Listening to people tell their stories in their mother tongues is powerful and my approach to counselling is narrative therapy, solution focused therapy and cognitive behaviour therapy in areas of anxiety, depression, low self-esteem and grief and loss.
Glenda FitzpatrickGrad Dip Christian Couns, Grad Cert Neuropsych
I began my working career as a teacher, however I have always had an interest in helping others find healing and worth. This motivated me to study counselling. Soon after I graduated, I began volunteering at a local church in their prayer centre, which focussed on inner healing through prayer. My interest in neuroplasticity led me to complete a Graduate Certificate in Neuropsychotherapy in 2019. Most recently I became interested in the Enneagram and the wealth of understanding it brings to why we think, feel and act the way we do. I enjoy working with individuals in the areas of inner healing, trauma, anxiety, forgiveness, spiritual healing, personality, purpose and identity.
