Mariyon Slany

Languages Spoken:

Since 2007, I have undergone retraining in psychotherapy at the Churchill Clinic (Diploma Psychodynamic Psychotherapy) and done studies in graduate psychology. I also have a Diploma of Counselling. Psychodynamic therapy is a global therapy, or form of therapy with a holistic focus on the perspective of the client.I have the capacity to utilise diverse therapies for different needs for clients using interpersonal psychodynamic therapy. But also using cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). The primary focus is on person-centred therapy.In addition, I have conducted professional training and development programs utilising my post graduate qualifications in conflict resolution and presenting on assertiveness and communication skills for corporate clients at the Australian Institute of Management (AIM) and many other organisations.The impact of relationships on everyday interactions is of great interest to me. That is why I have worked part-time at Relationships Australia since I acquired the Certificate IV in Facilitating Relationship Education from RA. Since 2012, I've facilitated numerous relationship education courses, bringing my wide range of interests to the daily nitty-gritty of how people can best relate to each other.I'm a qualified Resolution Institute mediator/member, with a post-graduate qualification in dispute resolution. I am also a qualified PREPARE/ENRICH counsellor and offer couples counselling, encouraging clients to talk in a safe environment and prioritise their relationship as divorce is highly traumatic for many. I take a curious unbiased approach and engage with both parties prior to their booking a session.I am a seasoned relationship expert who has personally experienced a toxic relationship, recovery after divorce, and a long-term partnership that includes step-parenting. My expertise includes giving a neutral perspective to your problems, being empathetic without sitting in judgement, and using attachment theory, the Gottman's research which I have had training in to promote strong relationships.
