Hi! I’m Jeanette, a counsellor-in-training.
I am currently working towards completing my Masters in Counselling from Monash University. I am also a fitness coach, providing a holistic approach to personal coaching and lifestyle management. Using my strong communication skills, I empower clients to identify and set realistic plans to achieve long-term goals. Throughout my career, I have interacted with several people from a variety of backgrounds and cultures who have shared a lot of their personal histories and challenges with me. It was the pandemic that got me thinking about how I could help those who were having a hard time making sense of things or struggling. This, together with my empathy, enthusiasm for personal growth, and interest in fostering interpersonal connections, motivated me to switch from a senior position in client-focused marketing and business development to one in personal coaching and counselling.
Understanding how I can support clients in achieving their goals while also giving them the tools and confidence to make lasting, positive changes in their life is what motivates me as a counsellor. In order to help you find your strengths and become the version of yourself you want to be, I use a combination of Person-Centred approaches and a number of integrative counselling techniques, such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Dialectic Behavioral Therapy (DBT).
Every person should, in my opinion, have the chance to share their story, receive the support they need, and come to the realisation that they are not alone in their journey. This is something I’m passionate about because I know how lonely it can be to feel like you have no one to turn to or that no one understands what you’re going through.
