Therapy with Nereda
I work collaboratively with clients to support their personal growth, self-awareness, adaptive function and reduced distress.
I work with children, adolescents and adults seeking support for exposure to trauma, suicidal ideation, affective and mood disorders, anxiety-related disorders, and behavioural and family system challenges. My client-centred approach puts emphasis on developing a strong therapeutic relationship that utilises a clients’ strengths and goals to build skills and improve function through evidence-based interventions. I offer a variety of expressive communication modes including art techniques, to assist in engagement and reach a deeper understanding of the internal experience. I work to address not only the symptoms effecting daily function, but also the core beliefs that drive maladaptive thoughts, feelings and behaviours. I specialise in EMDR, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and the use of Mindfulness.
