Denise Ball

My passion for counselling stems from my compassion for people as a whole. Having worked as a primary school counsellor and then private practice for over 10 years, I understand that people’s childhood experiences have profound impacts on themselves, their partners, family and other relationships.

I provide my clients with a safe space where it’s okay not to be okay. Where they can share openly and honestly in an unbiased, judgement-free and comfortable environment - we take the bumpy ride that is therapy together.

Whether you’re seeking support with parenting, your child’s behavioural issues, relationship dynamics or any of life’s stressors, my goal is to help you both identify and learn to use your own strengths to heal and grow, with the medium of a meaningful connection to support and guide you on your journey.

In addition to individual and couple therapy and working with parents, I run an emotional intelligent parenting program (“Tuning into kids”) for parents seeking to better understand and manage their child’s behaviours and emotions.

I look forward to hearing from you on 0418538364.
