Hi, my name is Justine, I'm glad you dropped by my website and hope you will find some useful information here. I recognise that choosing a therapist is a difficult task and that sometimes it takes a while to find someone who works well with you. Please don't hesitate to give me a call, have a talk about what you are looking for and see how my responses sit with you.
I am a Counsellor and Psychotherapist specialising in Art Therapy and my private practice is based in Brisbane, Queensland. I have extensive experience working with adults, children & young people on issues relating to: mental health, relationships, complex trauma, adverse childhood experiences, eating and body image issues and existential crisis. For professionals working in mental health, I offer Clinical Supervision and am registered with ACA and ANZACATA. My art therapy training was undertaken in the Masters of Mental Health program (University of QLD School of Medicine). I am a member of the Australian Counselling Association, PACFA and a Registered Art Therapist with the Australian, New Zealand and Asian Creative Arts Therapies Association (ANZACATA). There is more information regarding my background here.
On the menu above you will find tabs that will link you to what you are looking for. This website is also home to information about Press Pause Therapies run by myself and Nicole Kinnaird and located in Bardon. As of 2020 we will also have colleagues working from this space and you can find their details on the same page.
If there is anything you are looking for that you can't find, please don't hesitate to get in touch via the contact page.
