Welcome!

Welcome to my website!

I’ve chosen this picture to represent my work as a counsellor and psychotherapist. The room is warm, solid and soft at the same time. The rug is handmade, the wood polished and the chairs comfortable.  There is ample light that brings out the iridescence in the surrounding timber. Behind the chairs is the history and theories of psychotherapy… the knowledge of my predecessors imbibes the room and gives us direction and meaning for our being here. An open door invites us as curious individuals to step inside and the chairs arranged in a circle, tempts us to sit, contemplate and reflect on ourselves in the world, in the room, in our body and with each other.

I am a Gestalt psychotherapist and relationship counsellor seeing individuals and couples. I work with those who want change in their lives either or themselves and/or in their relationships. Some of the problems I work with are depression, anxiety, panic attacks, grief & loss, times of transition, trauma, abuse, confusion, crisis, lack of confidence, stress, relationship distress, conflict and enrichment as well as personal growth. I also see clients who self manage under the NDIS scheme.

I see the process as one that is basically transformative as the capacity to make creative and fulfilling choices increases through a deeper understanding of self and a growing awareness of one’s own resources. Feelings of stuckness dissolve and a greater sense of confidence in ones’ ability to meet life’s challenges grows in an essential way.

Please take a look around at the rest of the site if you are interested in finding out who I am and how I can help you. Please call me on 0439 802 218 if you have an inquiry or would like a chat about making an appointment. If I can’t answer straight away I’ll get back to you at the first available opportunity.

Warm regards

Urja
