    About Therapist

    Darleen has over 14 years of experience, bringing a wealth of knowledge and expertise to her practice. She is attuned to the needs of others, listening to their concerns with a focus on solutions. She is renowned for ‘being there’ when it matters most, and finding innovative ways out of the quagmire.

    She is an active, innovative and energetic activist, with a history of achievement and results. If you want to talk over a universe of issues in life, she is the woman to talk to. She can provide coping strategies, and the keys to unlocking the shackles that holds one back.

    Darleen upholds the highest standards of professionalism and ethical practice. She is an accredited Mediator with AIFLAM and RMAB, an accredited Family Group Facilitator, and a member of the ACA. She is committed to fostering healthy communication, resolving conflicts, and strengthening familial bonds through evidence-based therapeutic interventions.

    As a certified professional, she demonstrates her commitment to her clients. They always have the assurance that she not only knows what she is talking about, but she is dedicated to delivering solutions. She works with many successful clients to achieve happiness.

    She is a down to earth woman who knows success in life and is often supported by those who love her most. She also recognizes the importance of self-growth in herself and others. Being a mother of three (3), a wife, a daughter and a grand mother of two (2) she knows the importance of strong and reliable relationships. These are the foundations that allow one the freedom to move forward with confidence.

    Throughout her many and varied experiences, her acute awareness of what works and what doesn’t has allowed her to help others in developing their own successful strategies and procedures. From her experience of different types of counsellors and coaches, she noticed a more flexible, attuned and direct approach was needed to fully service the needs of individuals.

    When visiting the clinic, you will be welcomed by the new therapy dog “Andy”. He is an 8 month old Dachshund  who will be visiting once a week whilst in “training”.

    Feedback from a previous client:

    “Well, it’s been a long year, 2017 was the worst year of our married life and 2018 has ended up being the best. I find it hard to comprehend how our family could be back together, all talking to one another when we were so dysfunctional. Our family owe you so much gratitude.”
