Run Free Counselling & Group Work
Supporting families and individuals with open, nurturing and respectful therapy.
I like to use variety, playfulness and humour in my approaches, as well as having a very strong belief in non judgemental acceptance, respect for all, and a strong belief in the inner strengths and wisdoms of my clients.
Being in a group allows people to receive the support and encouragement of the other members of the group. People participating are able to see that there are others going through the same thing, which can help them feel less alone.
Grief & Loss
Grief can occur after any kind of loss or major life event. This could include death of a loved one, relationship breakdowns, family separation, job loss, injury, loss of a pet, and other events. Navigating grief and loss can be challenging and I encourage you to seek support if you’re struggling.
Hi, my name is Joyce.
I have been a counselling and group therapist for over 18 years. I have a vast range of experience, having worked for several well known agencies in Perth (including The Richmond Fellowship, Holyoake and Relationships Australia) over the years, as well as through my own practice work. My qualifications include a Bachelor Degree in Psychology from UWA and a Masters of Counselling from Curtin University. I have also attended a vast range of other courses, which included Inner Child, Art Therapy, and Sandtray work, and regularly attend trainings and workshops to keep me up to date and excited in my practice. I also volunteer at Inner Child Healing weeks and weekends with the Heal for Life Foundation.
In addition to talking, I can also use several modalities in my therapy work. I would discuss with you if I feel any would suit the circumstances, and please let me know if you prefer any yourself. Please see and click below to find out more about my techniques.
