    About Eleni

    Eleni Neville is a qualified relationship counsellor, psychotherapist, supervisor, and educator. Eleni has gained relevant qualifications to support couples and individuals in times of distress and disconnection, as well as during transitionary life-stages. Eleni specialises in both individual and relationship/couple counselling.

    For couples and relationships, she works with communication difficulties, loss of connection and intimacy, parenting tensions, blended families, cultural differences, affairs, separation and divorce, life-transitions, and grief and loss. She also has experience working with LGBTQI couples. Eleni supports couples to more deeply understand their relationship dynamics and patterns, to work towards accepting their differences, to attend to unresolved hurts, and to re-establish their emotional bonds.

    For individuals, she has special interests and experience in pregnancy and postnatal care, anxiety, depression, trauma, stress, self-esteem, grief and loss.

    She has worked with specialised relationship services including Relationships Australia and Lifeworks, as well as in the area of perinatal mental health. She additionally holds a role as a sessional lecturer at the Australian Institute of Professional Counsellors (AIPC). Her 15+ years of dedication to the field of therapy reflects her passion and inspiration for enhancing life experiences through self-growth, human-potential, meaningful relationships and responsibility. Eleni recognises our infinite capacity to heal from our wounds when faced with life’s challenges. She is motivated to support her clients to access their qualities of strength, courage, self-awareness and resilience.

    Her therapeutic approach utilises frameworks from an integrative psychotherapy lens, including couple and family therapy, emotion-focused therapy, somatic therapies, mindfulness, psychodynamic psychotherapy, and neuroscience. She is a trauma-informed practitioner, and she has committed to years of professional development and supervision.

    Eleni respects the uniqueness of each person’s experience. She is committed to developing a safe, non-judgemental, reflective and nurturing therapeutic experience to facilitate positive change. She is a compassionate, warm, attuned and sensitive therapist who takes care to attend to your deepest vulnerabilities.

    Eleni can also provide counselling in the Greek language.

    What are three strengths you have as a Psychologist/Counsellor?

    As a psychotherapist/relationship counsellor, I believe that my strengths are:

    • Capacity to connect with clients therapeutically, and to create a safe space.
    • Ability to be person-centred, and to apply interventions from multiple modalities.
    • Support couples to better understand their interactional patterns and dynamics.
    • Capacity to articulate, sensitively reflect, and reframe clients concerns, as well as their experiences of pain and  vulnerability.
    What is the most satisfying and fulfilling part of the work you do?

    Experiencing and facilitating the journey of vulnerability with couples and individuals to connect more deeply to themselves and their partners/families.
