Anxiety, unhappy relationships, eating disorders, sexual assault, abuse, anger management, grief and loss, self-harm, substance use issues and addiction to social media are just some of issues our young people face in 2020... and now we have the Corona virus pandemic. Its a wild wild world out there!
So how can I help?
Working with adolescents is my passion. I've been successfully working with teenage clients for over 15 years. My approach is highly compassionate, empathetic and down to earth. I incorporate contemporary counselling techniques but most importantly I meet my young clients where they are at, where-ever that may be with tenderness and care.
I also work with primary school aged children and implement art therapy, symbol and sand play.
Adult sessions are the same price.
*One to One counselling sessions $80 consession $100 (1hr)
"I highly recommend Amie as a counsellor. I took my niece Lola to see Amie for many sessions when she was approx 9 yrs old , after she had lost her mother to Cancer and had experienced her parents divorcing and custody battles . Amie was there to counsel my niece at just the right time ( a very crucial scary vulnerable time ) . Lola felt safe and supported and heard with Amie and was very keen to go back for further counselling , after her first session . Lola has said since , how it really helped her navigate tough times at school as well during times of bullying in primary school .
Lola came away from each session happier and more confident . It was clear that Lola was given the tools to cope with all that she was experiencing at that time of grief and loss and school challenges . Amie also helped prepare Lola for high school .
As Lola’s aunt, I can also see how now at 15 , she can communicate her views with more confidence and stand up for what she believes in . I am very pleased we chose Amie to help Lola at that crucial time . Thanks Amie ."
