Hi! I’m Candise,
I have a Masters in Counselling and Psychotherapy with over 12 years clinical experience working with couples, families, adolescents, children and individuals. In areas including couples mediation, depression, domestic violence, grief, eating disorders, adult and child anxiety, trauma, school issues and bullying.
I use a range of therapy techniques to help each client reach their full potential through their own journey. These models Include- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Trauma Focused CBT, Interpersonal Psychotherapy, Family Therapy, Play Therapy, Art Therapy, Emotional Focused Therapy (EFT), Systemic Therapy looking at Family dynamics, inter-generational Patterns and Family of Origin.
I have developed Protective Behaviours and Cyber Safety programs and have specialised experience working with children and families impacted by child sexual abuse and children displaying sexualised behaviours.
I have also developed a training workshop for schools and organisations to become trauma informed in order to provide the best possible support to children and families who have been impacted by trauma.
I am passionate about providing parent's with skills to protect their children. Providing children with tools to use their voice to know how to protect themselves.
“An innocent child is a vulnerable child, An informed child is a prepared child, A child who is prepared with a plan for protecting themselves is a safe child" (protecting young minds)
