Email: Web:  http://www.connectingdotscounselling.auHello and thank you so much for viewing my profile.  My name is Theresa Acutt and I am your qualified counsellor from Connecting Dots Counselling in Mindarie, Australia. Services for Seniors, Adults, Adolescents (13-17), Preteens (9-12yrs) Online, Face to Face, Walk and Talk for a number of concerns.  These include, but not limited to:  Anxiety, Stress, Overwhelm, Grief and Loss, Processing Trauma, Friendship concerns, School related concerns, Relationship concerns, Feelings of being stuck, Confidence, Resilience, Problem Solving, Mindfulness, Shame, Self Esteem, Motivation, Dealing with change, Gaining new perspectives, Questioning Faith and Procrastination.  It means a great deal to me that you get the support you need for your unique circumstances.  For you to be able to make an informed decision, here is a little bit of information about myself and what I can offer. It humbles me to be able to walk along-side you, sharing, discovering and working through the experiences that may have brought you to counselling. I am totally amazed at how clients transform from stating they have no hope to having hope, from being totally overwhelmed, to thriving and taking control of things they can whilst letting go of things that no longer serve them.  From being apprehensive, to being excited at the prospect of the change they are implementing in their life and from being confused to having such clarity and motivation to make a change or implement a skill. From grieving to learning how to live with grief in their life and from experiencing anxiety and trauma and discovering how they are able to use their strengths and still be the best version of themselves.  To sum that up, well for me, YOU are absolutely inspiring. For as long as I can remember, I have been interested in supporting others.  I have always been able to ‘see’ both sides of a situation and have tried to find the best outcome for various situations that have impacted my life.  I have been so privileged to be a part of many children’s school journey.  Experiencing how they become aware of their true potential and self-worth when someone believes in them, has been so inspiring to me.  Being loved and appreciated and being witness to those people throughout my life, displaying strength and courage to overcome hardship and learning how to stay grounded and joyful has all contributed to where I am today. I have qualifications and experience in Education, Counselling and Business.  Prior to becoming a business owner and qualifying as a counsellor, I worked as an Education Assistant for many years in a school setting with daily interaction with both parents and children, as well as working in Day Care Centre settings.  I have worked as a personal assistant/executive secretary in various corporate organisations over a number of years. I am currently a Griefline volunteer supporting help seekers who are experiencing grief or loss and loneliness in their life. Having supports in my life to guide me, cheerlead for me, give me new perspective on things and support me through a number of concerns and achievements, has been invaluable to me.  Supports who have given me the encouragement and confidence to take small steps, helping me to change direction, stay on course and propel me forward to where I want or need to go in my life.    My hope is to connect with clients who would like to have a space where they feel encouraged, supported, hopeful and listened to and empowered to make the changes they need and want for their lives. I can be contacted via email: or via Facebook messenger on the Connecting Dots Counselling Facebook page. I really look forward to meeting you.
