Ali's Counselling Services has been helping individuals & relationships through my private practice at Mardi, Berkeley Vale & Bateau Bay on the central coast since 2012. I regularly counsel clients with the following issues depression, anxiety, anger management, grief and loss, childhood trauma, domestic violence, Leaving abusive relationships, Single parenting, Drug and alcohol rehabilitation, addiction, work place bullying, and much more. Also working with single mums who benefit from having someone to walk alongside them during this sometimes-difficult journey. My main speciality is Relationship counselling and I have had great success in this area of expertise. 


Prior to starting my practise my  background has been within the age care sector as a community care nurse, as well as experience in youth work , counselling adolescents and working with our homeless community.  As well as running my private practise I also work within many age care facilities helping residents and families members transition into age care homes.

I have vast experience working with all forms of counselling.


My approaches to therapeutic interventions including but are not limited to, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Narrative Therapies and Gestalt Therapy.


What is Counselling?

_____________

Ali's Counselling Services offers you a confidential, secure and supportive environment, where you can work through your problems, and have time to reflect upon your circumstances, without judgment. In difficult circumstances, family members and friends are not always able to provide an objective point of view. 


At Ali's Counselling Services we provide you the time, space & encouragement to explore and understand the issues you bring. While counselling is not magic or an instant cure, it can help you make effective decisions which will lead to positive changes for now & in the future.
