Jane has extensive specialised experience working as a counsellor within not-for-profit agencies that support refugees and asylum seekers.  This involves helping people heal from their refugee trauma experiences and the scars of torture, whilst they re-build their lives in Australia or, whilst they live within the Australian onshore and offshore detention system.

This unique and effective counselling work involves various cultures, languages, interpreters, and locations.  Jane explains that common clients issues include: depression, anxiety, family conflict, cultural clashes, daily coping strategies, nightmares, grief, loss, post-trauma-recovery, PTSD, sleeplessness, and a sense of loss of personal identity and purpose.

  • Offering warmth, understanding and empathy
  • Providing genuine and positive energy
  • Identifying existing strengths
  • Providing a reflective space
  • Compassionate group therapy
  • Giving non judgemental feedback
  • Facilitating creative techniques to rediscover your sense of self and meaning of life

It is these skills and this approach that Jane will introduce to her clients in Mona Vale.
