Samantha is a dedicated practitioner who aims to provide a safe and empowering environment, allowing clients to discuss and explore concepts to create a meaningful life and a sense of holistic wellbeing.
Practitioners hold the knowledge of best practice and evidence-based interventions that can support clients in achieving their goals, but there is no greater expert in the therapeutic relationship than the client themself. Nobody knows more about what they are thinking and feeling, which goals are important, what works, and what does not more than the client. Working alongside clients and tapping into shared expertise, the aim is to work towards notable improvement.
Holding a Masters of Social Work, Samantha is registered in providing Focused Psychology Strategies from a range of counselling modalities. Together we can explore which interventions best meet individual needs.
In addition to this qualification, Samantha holds a BA- Early Childhood Teaching, BA- Social Science and a Post Graduate program in Sexology.
As an Accredited Mental Health Social Worker (AMHSW), Samantha realises that people do not sit in isolation. We are all members of relationships, families, and communities, all of which impact our lives. This becomes an important consideration when working towards wellbeing.
Samantha has a passion for supporting and advocating for women and families living in regional and rural areas and as a lifelong learner, ensures that she continually develops her practice knowledge to provide a service that can support the clients that she has the privilege of working alongside.
