Certified Couples Counsellor
Mobile 0423 632 657
We all need someone to talk to from time to time. Good therapy can be a complex mix of listening, sometimes being passive, sometimes making non-judgemental observations and sometimes making suggestions. Clients all need different things, and a good therapist is guided by the client. A good therapist holds a safe space where the client can learn to open up and explore past pain and/or present confusion, recover their equilibrium and look to the future positively.
I specialise in Couples Counselling, using the Imago Relationship Therapeutic approach.
Ericksonian, Hypnotherapy, Imago Relationship, Marriage and Family, NLP, Person Centred, Solution Oriented, Systems Theory
Depending on the client's description of what they feel they need, Annie uses a mix of Freudian psychoanalysis, Rogerian person-centred therapy, Human Givens, Family Constellations, NLP, and refers strongly to Attachment Theory. She practices Imago Dialogue with couples and in group and work situations. While essentially listening deeply to what the client says, Annie is also prepared to give guidance if requested on how to change any toxic deep-seated patterns into a more healthy lifestyle.
Annie has been in practice as a Counsellor, Psychological Therapist and Life Coach for many years. She has travelled widely and has had a colourful private life. She says, 'You can't tell me anything that I haven't heard before', and 'Everyone needs someone to talk to from time to time.'
