Welcome. My heartfelt mission is to hold a safe, sacred space for women to feel heard, healed and whole. Through my own growth and transformation, I have unearthed that the healing process is an upward spiral, akin to the natural cycle of the seasons. Using mindbody principles of Gestalt Therapy, I offer a safe, personalised and effective approach to healing past traumas, emotions and narratives that may be impeding and impacting your life in the present. The result is a coming home to yourself.
Therapy sessions for women are by appointment:
In person at Mortdale (St George area), Caringbah (Sutherland Shire), Summer Hill (Inner West), or online via Zoom.
Plus Sacred Mothers Groups for women in Mortdale.
FREE 15 minute phone consult available, book at: www.irenevalis.com.

I offer a trauma-informed, body-oriented and relational approach to therapy. Gestalt is a safe, gentle, integrated modality that supports you to express yourself fully and cultivate growth and change.
Together we will explore how you relate to yourself, to others, and to your environment. Through this active and authentic way of relating, we come to understand who you are and what and how you feel, do, think and move in the here and now (experience) - rather than what was, might be, could be, or should be (story).
This newfound awareness presents you with choices in how you respond to life and with that choice becomes change as you begin to experience reintegration of various parts of self and restore a sense of wholeness and inner peace,
I am a provisional member of the Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia (PACFA) and I uphold the code of ethics and practices set out by PACFA.
I am involved in monthly clinical supervision and I continue my own personal and professional development as I believe sustaining authentic connection with self and others is vital for a full and satisfying human existence.
Through my own growth and experience, I have unearthed that the healing process is an upward spiral, akin to the natural cycle of the seasons.
I am committed to working with you through ups and downs; exploring with you any opportunities and challenges; and walking with you on a path towards awareness, change and empowerment.
I have studied Gestalt Therapy for the last 3 years, and prior to that I managed various events, programs and projects within Department of Family and Community Services (FACS) and NFPs within the health sector, aimed towards improving the quality of life for some of the most vulnerable members of our community including seniors, people with disability and youth.
