Melinda Timmons

Languages Spoken:

HI, I'm Melinda and I am a Level 4 registered counsellor and clinical supervisor. I provide online services.Counselling –  I am a trauma-informed practitioner with a focus on supporting people to heal from past abuse and unresolved trauma, experienced at any stage of life. I am also passionate about supporting people with setting boundaries and people pleasing tendencies.I have been working therapeutically with people for over 16 years now, and I have a Master of Counselling as well as a Bachelor of Social Work.My approach to treatment is non-pathologising, which means I will be less focused on ‘what is wrong with you’ (diagnosis/labels) and more interested in ‘what has happened to you’ (experiences), and how they are impacting your life now (symptoms) and the way you view yourself (perspective). I will also be focused on helping you to reduce your suffering, and providing you with the skills and support to help manage your symptoms.My counselling framework is underpinned by respect, non-judgement and curiosity. I believe you are the expert of your own life, and I am here to guide and support you. My focus is on supporting you to heal from these wounds and to help you find your way to creating a life worth living.Supervision – I provide clinical supervision to counsellors (ACA and PACFA) and social workers (AASW) and enjoy working with those who are early in their counselling career. If you work with a similar client group and you are looking for individual online supervision, please have a look at my website and get in touch. I am a member of the College of Supervisors with ACA as well as having additional training to provide supervision to PACFA members.Medicare Rebates availableApproved Counsellor with NSW Victim Services
