Making Space Therapies 


Justine & Nicole: Press Pause Therapies:


We met 20 years ago whilst working for a large counselling service.  After taking seperate journeys after our time at this service, we reconnected years later and decided, as colleagues with shared interests in creativity and innovative approaches to therapy, to create a small private practice to support adults, young people and children seeking support. Over the past few years we have continued to run a thriving private practice together and offer occasional creative workshops. 

Although our individual therapeutic practices draw from different training backgrounds, together we share a committment to person centred practice and an appreciation of playfulness and humour in the way we run our premises and our groups. 

Clinical Supervision:

We are both recognised as Clinical Supervisors by their membership organisations (AASW and ANZACATA, ACA). Supervision is currently offered individually face to face, online or by phone. Clinical Supervision is available  for all mental health professionals. Please check with your membership organisation if they recognise Supervisors who may have a different discipline to your own.


Press Pause Therapies current information relating to covid-19


We have been continuing to offer therapeutic services at 11 Morgan Terrace Bardon, Queensland 4065 throughout the pandemic. We operate in accordance with our membership organisations and within all WHO and Australian Health department Guidelines as they currently stand. If you would like further information regarding the measures we have in place, please let us know and we can email you these.

In addition to our regular services, we have also returned to the skill set we were both practising when we originally met 15 years ago- telephone and online counselling! At that time, we were both working for a large telephone, web and email based counselling service and spent many years developing these skills. Although at this time Queensland is doing well to manage covid-19, we are aware that for some people distance support may still be a preferred option. Please talk to us if you have any questions.
