Kobie’s therapeutic approach is predominantly psychodynamic, influenced by a therapeutic approach known as Self Psychology, or ‘the Psychology of the Self’. This approach is a means of understanding how people develop a clear and cohesive sense of self, exploring their own ambitions and ideals, enabling them to grow to fulfill their potential. Disruptions to the development of the self are thought to be the foundation of many emotional, psychological, and interpersonal difficulties.
Generally her counselling approach moves through three inter-related stages; hearing and responding to the client’s story, mapping the possibilities and goal setting, action planning and closure. Her approach to counselling is gentle, compassionate, curious, gently challenging and attuned to what is happening for the client in the present moment. Kobie’s experiences in the field of psychology have allowed her to observe clients develop a much stronger understanding of themselves and of others.
Kobie has worked as a counsellor in a variety of settings, including as a therapist for children and parents who have experienced grief and loss and anxiety related difficulties, and for children and adult survivors who have been abused physically, emotionally and/or sexually. Kobie has a special interest in working with children and families, and complex trauma. Kobie finds therapeutic work invigorating and is inspired by the bravery of clients to engage in the work.
Each consultation is 50-minutes in duration. Extended and after hours (from 5 pm) consultations are also available and will attract an additional fee.
