In her work with clients, she seeks to create a safe and supportive environment in which individuals can explore at their own pace.
Through her acceptance of individuals and the lack of judgement with which she approaches each client, Elyse hopes to help each person in their own journey and process of reaching their potential.
She works collaboratively with clients, with the belief that within each individual is the desire and ability for growth and healing.
This may focus on a search for meaning in life, a sense of purpose or a wish to find what makes life worthwhile. To discover one’s path and to live authentically, to be able to live in the moment, in the here and now, without worry, anxiety or fear.
Often people are looking to make sense of events that have occurred in the past, to heal wounds or to find acceptance, in order to let go and move on from these often difficult and traumatic events.
A longing to understand oneself, others and interpersonal relationships, to improve relationships with family and friends, to discover one’s own authentic self and learn to live from this place.
These are all reasons why individuals seek therapy.
Elyse’s special therapeutic interests include working with anxiety and depression.
In particular post natal depression, family and/or relationship difficulties such as sexual concerns, separation, parenting and step family issues, as well as gay and lesbian issues.
Elyse is a member of the Australian Psychological Society (APS)
