I’m decided to shift my hours/locations a bit due to circumstances around room availability and client demographics.
Unfortunately, I’ve stopped working at Sutherland which I am sad about as I think counselling (especially for LGBTIQA+ individuals, couples and families) is such an invisible issue/unmet need in the Shire.
The reason is that I don’t have existing relationships with services such as medical centres or other services to get referrals from whereas the I get a lot more calls and referrals for the city. My niche is also hard to advertise in the Shire as it is still quite a conservative area.
Which leads to my next point… I will be working at Erskineville/Newtown on Saturdays going forward. Yay! I’m so keen to work more with the LGBTQIA+ community whether it be doing individual counselling around identity/self-worth/etc, relationship counselling (open and poly inclusive, relationship anarchist inclusive), or family counselling (that can be a variety of presentations with young kiddos and parent/s, adult siblings, or adult family members with their adult relatives/elderly parents).
I like a good variety to keep my therapist muscles stretched. The majority of my clients so far have been for afterhours city-based appointments which makes sense with how hectic Sydney life is. I do have limited availability for afterhour appointments because of how popular they are so please email me asap if you’re interested, otherwise I will still be available at the city on Tues/Wed during the day.
Saturdays: Erskinville all day
Weekday afterhours: Sydney CBD
Tues/Wed work hours: Sydney CBD
Send me an email if you want any clarification or details! Email’s the best way to contact me since I won’t be able to answer calls during sessions/work. I’ll get back to you within 24 hours.
