About us




Alison: Lead Counsellor

I am passionate about caring for others. Over the past 20 years, I have been working in multiple community service sectors. Including youth work, school chaplaincy, mental health, disability, prisons, rehabilitation, carer, parenting, and church communities. I am married, my partner is FIFO and we have two children.

As a professional counselor, I use a person-centered, integrated approach. This includes listening to your story with empathy and compassion and recognizing the influence of family origin, the role of our thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. Act and Commitment Therapy and Client-Centered Play Therapy can be included.

I am respectful of people with spiritual and religious beliefs and encourage people in their faith.

All counselors are qualified and trained professionals. Registered with Australian Counselling Association.
