About Zhamilya

I am super passionate about my work as a Counsellor after many years working in the corporate world left me searching for a more fulfilling and meaningful career. I find that so many of my clients echo this search – in addition to wanting to address their day-to-day life struggles – they are searching for something more. And this is where I love to be, fully attentive, empathising with my clients but most of all working alongside them to explore ways of improving all aspects of their lives, be that work, relationships, childhood attachment wounds or trauma.

I combine a variety of psychological techniques, philosophical views as well as practical approaches, but most of all I am client-centred. I hold a unique space for my clients and help them seeing themselves, their lives, relationships and event traumatic events through a different lens.
I view anxiety, depression, behavioural issues, anger management as well as problems in relationships as the symptoms or our best attempts to navigate life’s challenges. While we will work together to find new, more adaptive strategies, I also believe it’s important explore and heal from the underlying issues behind them otherwise it’s often just a band-aid approach to therapy.
In my spare time I love to go out and explore all the great food places in Melbourne, practice aerial yoga, rowing in the summer and skiing in the winter.

About Nina

I’m a Registered Counsellor with the Australian Counselling Association and the Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia. I began my studies at Monash University, completing a Bachelor of Behavioural Science progressing to a Master of Counselling. I have since pursued further training in Equine Assisted Psychotherapy through the Equine Psychotherapy Institute, Sand Tray Therapy and Drumbeat Therapy.
I have had the pleasure and honour to have spent the majority of my career journeying with children and families across various remote and urban locations across Australia. I have experience working with individuals of all ages but have a keen interest in supporting children and their parents.
My journey with children is led by them, often playful, creative, and fun! However, I don’t journey with children alone, I support their parents in exploring the challenges they are facing, thinking through where it has come from, what it may mean and how to support their child. My approach is flexible and adaptive to the child’s needs, and together we celebrate growth and success, navigate the challenges, and embrace a new way of living.
Outside of work, I enjoy baking cakes, watching sunsets and playing with my two sausage dogs!

About Coralie

I was never destined to become a counsellor. Having grown up in the French countryside, where no-one ever talked about mental health, I went on to live my adult life thinking that you just need to keep going, whatever comes your way. That was until 2017, when I severely burnt out after experiencing workplace bullying, then was the victim of a traffic accident that led me to develop chronic pain. I could not make sense of the emotional, mental and physical turmoil that I was thrown into.
It was only thanks to my new passion for the mind, body and soul, and finding the right professional support, that I was able to heal and find a path forward: becoming a counsellor to help those who are struggling through any context or situation.
I am registered with the Australian Counselling Association and I work with you using the tools and therapies that I believe are best suited to your needs and goals. Counselling, for me, is about empowering you through unpacking how events, experiences and people in your lives have impacted you and led to your current thoughts, feelings and body sensations.
Outside of work, I enjoy reading (and hoarding books to read later), spending time in nature, and having a nice cup of tea with a friend.

About Bea

As a therapist I offer a person-cantered, integrative approach depending on what works best for my client. I draw upon mindfulness-based approaches, Solution Focused Therapy, Schema Therapy, and Existential Psychotherapy. From tough decisions, to grief and loss, anxiety and depression, relationship issues each person’s journey is important and unique to me. I also have a particular interest in supporting persons who navigate through trauma recovery whether it is developmental trauma or a single incident trauma. My work is informed by attachment, trauma, and polyvagal theories and can be somatically oriented. I offer EMDR and Somatic Experiencing (SE), in which I am fully trained.

I have had the honour of working as a mental health practitioner for the past 20 years. During this time, I have worked in the public and private mental health sector as a Mental Health Occupational Therapist, Counsellor and Psychotherapist. I have experience in working with adolescents, adults and couples from diverse cultural backgrounds and all walks of life. Living in 4 continents through my life has helped me confirm that, fundamentally, we have more similarities than differences. We all seek to fulfill the basic need for safety, connection, validation, positive regard, empathy and nurturance. These are the qualities that are utmost important to me for my clients to experience in therapeutic process.

When I am not at work I love hanging out with my family and friends, hike or go to the movies. I am the mum of 2 young adult children and one naughty kitten named Kaissa.
