Who we are…
This practice was born out of the desire to provide a safe space for individuals, couples, and families to work on any challenges that life may bring. We are passionate to see people live their lives effectively and well connected and to achieve their dreams and desires for work and life.
As our logo states, we want to see people…
“be all that they can be - with passion and purpose”.
Hello! My name is Elen and I have been providing counselling, coaching and therapy now for over 16yrs. As a fellow human being, I understand the challenges that life can bring and that sometimes we need a little professional help to sort through those challenges, and acquire some strategies to begin the journey towards real and lasting change. Seeking help is not a weakness but rather a strength to want better than what is, to improve your circumstances, and to get on with life healthily.
Counselling, Coaching, and Therapy is a very personal experience so therefore the therapist/client relationship is key. it is important that you feel comfortable and safe with your therapist/coach throughout the process. I consider it an absolute privilege to walk this journey with you and will always endeavour to make this experience one of the most valuable things you choose to do.
Elen has worked as a counsellor and relationship therapist for three different non-government organisations (NGO’s) in the Central Coast, Sydney and Newcastle working with a broad range of mental health issues and with an emphasis on relationships. This has included providing counselling and therapy in a specialised service for victims of domestic/family violence, and also co-facilitating groups for women and for children who had experienced/or were living with abuse.
Elen has had the opportunity to also work with refugees in a humanitarian counselling program in western Sydney, working with individuals and families from Africa, Iraq, and Afghanistan, Iran, whilst also working in mainstream counselling services. In that time she gained a great deal of experience working with individuals from diverse cultures and backgrounds in the Sydney inner west region and western Sydney.
Elen has also worked with Beyond Blue, NSW Health, working in Critical Care, Womens Health, Mental Health as well as continuing my therapy practice. Most currently Elen has been working extensively contracting to corporate psychology service providers, providing EAP coaching and counselling support to the public and private sectors. This includes some onsite work (providing support and education), as well as trauma work, and continuing private practice.
On a personal level, Elen has been married for over 30yrs and has two adult sons, a dog, several cows, and some wild kangaroos who visit regularly!
