She combines her professional knowledge and extensive lived experience (including over 25 years in diverse corporate, government, sports, and private businesses) to provide a holistic and authentic counselling service to individuals experiencing everyday life challenges. Kris is passionate about encouraging and empowering her clients to develop greater self-awareness and strengthen their self-confidence, so they can better interpret their thoughts and feelings, and make informed choices about their behaviours once they better understand the consequences for themselves and others.In practice, Kris applies a genuine client centred, strengths based and solution focused perspective while integrating various evidence-based therapeutic modalities, techniques, and education, such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), narrative therapy (NT), solutions focussed therapy (SFT), cognitive processing therapy (CPT), internal family systems (IFS), neuroplasticity, and mindfulness.Kris is multi-skilled and an enthusiastic life-long learner who understands the sensitivities of working with individuals from cultural, religious and gender diverse backgrounds.
