    About Lee B

    Lee is an experienced therapist who works with couples and individuals in ways that are informed by compassion, contemporary psychology and science. Her approach is to attend to the whole person’s perceptions, thoughts, feelings and physical experience.

    Lee’s approach to resolving a couple’s relationship challenges is to help them to create a more secure, loving connection – to be safe, seen and understood. A healthy relationship will build resilience, support wellbeing and soothe the nervous system and support the rest of the family.

    Lee completed her relationship training and internship at Relationships Australia and continues to learn and practice using Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT). A framework which is evidence-based couples counselling and is deeply aligned with her therapeutic training as a qualified Gestalt Psychotherapist.

    In her work she provides a safe and confidential therapeutic process to support clients at their own pace. She helps you to discover what’s missing in your life, in your relationship and improve your awareness and regulation of your emotions.

    Lee practices meditation daily as a form of support and resilience and loves what she does. Her therapeutic practice allows her to walk the talk by living with a growth mindset, embracing all the challenges of this human experience. In such unprecedented times it is important to find ways to heal our fear brain, to live with all the changes/uncertainty in the world and find balanced and nourishing ways to be and to love.

    How many years counselling experience do you have?

    Over 10 years.

    What are three strengths you have as a Psychologist/Counsellor?
    1. Authenticity and empathy towards the client and their dilemmas.
    2. Attunement; the ability to go into the client’s experience with them.
    3. An open and non-judgemental approach.
    What is the most satisfying and fulfilling part of the work you do?

    Welcoming my clients into a safe space where they can move through their pain, grow and learn to thrive. I enjoy watching couples grow closer when they begin to see each other in a more compassionate and loving light.

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

    I have helped many clients to explore deep emotional places like profound existential dilemmas, personal fears, deep longings and a sense of helplessness. Together we have explored the defences they have put up that prevented them from experiencing trust, intimacy and connection with their partner. We have looked at the cycle of disconnection that they have built up over time and learned to resolve the distress that this has brought to the relationship. Once this cycle is identified, a different choice can be made to avoid repeating the pattern and can be applied to future situation that may cause friction in the relationship, whether it is sex, money, children or in-laws.
