Believe in your Dreams Counselling

Bilinga, QLD

I am passionate about all people having access to good quality counselling services at a reasonable price!

I work at Boystown Kids Helpline and I love being a counsellor! I believed with all my heart that part of my life purpose is to assist and support people to believe in and take steps to make their dreams come true!

My training and experience as a counsellor includes: Currently completing a Graduate Diploma in Psychology;
Bachelor of Arts with major in Psychology, Lifeline telephone counselling training and volunteer on the phones for many years; Lifeline face to face counsellor and group facilitator; creation of Life line children's groups manuals; Bachelor of Counselling including internship at Lifeline. I have also been employed in the mental health industry as a support worker and coordinator for many client programs, including creation of new programs and in disabilities coordinating disability programs-supporting people with a disability and their families/carers including support and assistance in many areas and providing emergency respite.

My qualifications include a Cert IV in Training and assessment to run groups and training programs.

I utilise counselling, in collaboration with many other types of therapies, including personal and professional boundary setting, information about other support services, information about grief cycles, domestic violence cycles, supporting resilience and strengths, reframing, cognitive behaviour therapy, music, physical activity, meditations, journal writing, using crystals, writing and using affirmations and vision boards, use of symbols and oracle cards, calling apon angels and goddess, creating sacred spaces and many others.

I tailor these therapies to meet people's particular needs and tastes to assist and support. All therapy is different and talk therapy is only one type of therapy used. I have seen the positive effect of therapy, when used effectively and safely, can have in all people's lives everyday.
I look forward to sharing your journey to believe in your dreams again and bringing these to life!
It is possible!
Kind Regards, Mary-Ida
