Mayumi Purvis

Languages Spoken:

Through my online private practice in Sandringham, I specialise in counselling for couples.  I am also a University lecturer in Counselling at Deakin University.I previously worked with serious problem and offending behaviours for nearly two decades – always focused on strengths-based work and promoting good lives.  After moving on to work in private practice with individuals across a wide range of problems, I then moved on to specialise in relationship therapy.  I value my clients as experts in their own lives, therefore I seek to develop a collaborative working style.  My therapeutic approach is to foster a warm, caring, and authentic connection with each person.  I carefully and respectfully apply my technical knowledge to help my clients explore their challenges and charter a way forward with autonomy and self-compassion.
