Ms Laurence Baretto De Souza
As an Integrative Therapist, I use different modalities to fit my clients needs, learning curves and communications styles, personality and state of mind. I also adapt to fit my clients' physical health, integrating body and mind work within the process of change.
My clients have told me that they find me easy to talk to, that I am non-judgemental. I have worked with people facing all sorts of issues including addiction, adoption, abuse (domestic, historical sexual abuse, neglect, and other types of abuse), greaving and losses, life changes. I have also worked with people who suffer from Depression, OCD, PTSD, Eating Disorders and other mental health problems.
I have worked with people focussing on their personal exploration and development.
I have been practicing and studying Mindfulness and have been integrating Mindfulness more into my practice. I also volunteer at Pavilions Alcohol and Drug Services at the Mindfulness drop-in session weekly.
I have been working as Counsellor/Psychotherapist for over 13 years. During this time I have accumulated over 1000 hours of 1 to 1 of counselling and I have facilitated 800 therapeutic groups.
