Hi, I'm Paulette
Every client referred is different and brings their own and my, different skills, experience and knowledge to the fore in working with them and developing understanding and a management plan.
My goal is to work with client and develop empathy while using; life experience, my training in Psychology and Counselling, and using resources aiming to build lasting change and skills.
My work roles have spanned across settings, age groups, presenting issues and cultures where applied skills such as career transition/counselling, rehabilitation and general psychological issues such as trauma, depression and anxiety support.
The satisfaction is helping clients effect change, working together. I have worked within the Medicare frameworks since 2007 and enjoy seeing the change and development psychological support can bring in life, particularly in this current time of need.
