Nina Green Counselling
Warm, down-to-earth Counselling for women exploring who they are, why they aren't where they want to be, why they react in ways they don't like or understand, or why life feels so hard for them while it seems to be easy for others. Nina believes that our connections, coping skills, supports, neurotypes, invisible disability, or the health of our bodies also impact our wellbeing. Nina has a special interest in complex or overwhelming childhood experience, and in neurodiversity-affirming practice.
Nina offers both Face to Face and Telehealth Counselling, with a strong commitment to ongoing Telehealth service as a means of supporting inclusive and accessible counselling for clients with chronic illness or disability, or who just find undertaking travel to attend therapy to be a barrier to getting the right support!
Telehealth therapy is via video platform only.

Nina uses a "Common Factors" approach that draws from a toolkit of evidence based therapeutic approaches to provide an adaptable style of counselling designed to work for you. Nina's approach highlights skills and strategies that support real change.
Your counselling experience may include taking time to unpack recent experiences, untangle long-standing concerns, or practice skills to help transform difficult internal experiences and manage big emotions. Nina also has a commitment to the "bio-psycho-social" model of wellbeing, which acknowledges that factors such as structural issues, the health of our bodies and the quality of our connections can all have real impacts on our mental health.
Nina is a registered member of the Australian Counselling Association (ACA, Level 2), and has professional experience in the community mental health sector supporting the Mental Health Recovery of clients living with complex diagnoses of mental illness, as well as in services for clients navigating diagnosis and treatment of cancer.
