Hi, my name is Kate Jeffery and I am a Registered Psychologist and Child and Family Therapist with 15 years experience working with families, couples and individuals from all walks of life. I currently specialise in working with young people from 10 – 25 years and offer therapeutic support to their parents and family when helpful. We all experience times of difficulty (myself included!). The process of therapy can help you feel that you are not alone and assists you in becoming more connected to yourself and the people that matter to you – creating clarity to explore and choose the changes you want to make in your life.
The Banksia Room is a safe, warm, calm, non-judgmental and peaceful space to talk about anything you or a family member may be struggling with. It’s a place where you will be listened to with kindness, respect and without judgement. Together we work towards facing your struggles with self compassion, creativity, courage and humour.
Whether you are a young person, adult or parent in need of some time to care for yourself and or your family, the Banksia Room is here for you.
There are times in family life where it can be useful to get help taking a step back to look at problems in your family that seem to be going in circles or getting worse. Family therapy can be done with the whole nuclear family or just two members.
Family therapy can help when a family is:
Whatever your family needs Banksia Room Psychology offers a space where you can connect and make changes in your family life. To make an appointment or an enquiry, contact me on 0437 967 360 or via online HERE.Parenting Support
Banksia Room offers a non-judgemental place to talk about the issues you are facing with your child or adolescent. There are patterns we all get into as parents that impact on our children and family life.
It may also be that your child or adolescent is displaying some worrying behaviour and they are not prepared to get psychological help. It can still be
useful to come to counselling and we can talk through how you can best manage that as their parent. Counselling also offers you time to reflect on
how you are connecting with your child and/or adolescent – what is working and what isn’t. To make an appointment or an enquiry, contact me on 0437 967 360 or via online HERE.
Adolescence is a time of enormous change and it can feel like an emotional storm at times – exciting, scary, confusing, exhilarating. We work together on identifying your needs and what is getting in the way of meeting them. I will support you to take the steps of change that you are wanting to make. To make an appointment or an enquiry, contact me on 0437 967 360 or via online HERE.
Individual Adult Counselling
There are times in our lives where obstacles seem to stand in our way – whether it be anxiety, stress, depression, fear, sadness or everything just all feels too much. The Banksia Room will give you the time and space to understand what is happening for you and what steps you would like to take towards change. We will explore ways of dealing with uncomfortable thoughts and feelings without them getting in the way of you living a full and meaningful life. To make an appointment or an enquiry, contact me on 0437 967 360 or via online HERE.
