    About Kellie C

    Kellie provides marriage counselling in Sydney, and has an Honours Degree in Psychology from the University of NSW and a Graduate Diploma of Relationship Counselling from the Institute of Family Practice. Kellie is also Hart Centre certified and a registered member of the Australian Counselling Association. She engages in regular self-reflection and participates in peer and clinical supervision.

    Kellie has a very caring and respectful nature and has experience using a range of therapeutic approaches depending on the client’s need (eg. systemic therapy, mindfulness, solution-focused therapy, emotionally focused couple therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy).  She is passionate about assisting individuals, couples and families overcome their relationship difficulties and achieve more fulfilling, healthy and loving ways of relating with each other.  She provides a safe and non-judgemental environment for clients to identify and explore their relationship issues and individual needs. Kellie focuses on providing practical skills to work through these issues, such as improved communication and conflict resolution skills, for personal growth and enabling relationships to grow in more positive ways.

    In addition to counselling, Kellie also works in Indigenous Affairs and has a personal interest in improving the health, social and emotional wellbeing of Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians.

    How many years counselling experience do you have?

    6 years.

    What are three strengths you have as a Psychologist/Counsellor?
    1. I’m compassionate and respectful .. you will feel heard and understood.
    2. I’m committed to encourage and empower you to make sustainable, positive changes for yourself and your relationships.
    3. I will gently challenge you and your viewpoints to facilitate happier and healthier relationships.
    What is the most satisfying and fulfilling part of the work you do?

    It is a privilege to create a trusting space where people feel safe enough to share their issues, be vulnerable with me and each other, and be heard and understood (sometimes for the first time). It is satisfying to see people develop some self awareness and start to have some understanding of themselves, each other and the part they play in their relationship dynamics. It is fulfilling to see their communication skills improve, their reactivity decrease and their connection increase. From little things, big things grow, so it is wonderful to witness the smallest positive changes that can lead to happier, healthier and more intimate relationships.

    What’s an example of a couple you have helped the most?

    A couple came to see me in a very distressed state following the discovery of an affair. The couple had been married for 20 years and had 3 children. I assisted the couple work through the affair and its meaning and over time they were able to start rebuilding trust, improve connection and intimacy and start to have some fun in their relationship.
