Press Pause Therapies current information relating to covid-19
We will be continuing to offer therapeutic services at 11 Morgan Terrace Bardon, Queensland 4065. We are operating in accordance with our membership organisations and well within all WHO and Australian Health department Guidelines as they currently stand.
In addition to our regular services, we are returning 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. It is time to return to this skill set so we can offer more people support.
Please do not hesitate to ask about moving your sessions to the phone or online.
If you are in financial difficulty and are thinking therapy at this time is not possible to start or continue- please let us know so we can work something out together.
Please also note that in 2020 Justine and Nicole have also welcomed three other therapists to Press Pause:
Dr Andrew Roberts; Psychiatrist MONDAYS
Please see Andrew's website for further information
Steph Goldston; Family Therapist and Occupational Therapist
Laura Hawkins; Family Therapist and Occupational Therapist
TUESDAYS- please see Steph and Laura's website for further information https://www.launchtherapy.com.au
How Justine and Nicole's collaboration began:
As colleagues with shared interests in creativity and innovative approaches to therapy, we decided to start developing some creative arts workshops for submission at the 2014 Woodford Folk Festival. Our submission was accepted and we ran three sold out workshops that were the beginning of an exciting collaboration for us. Over the past few years we have continued to run a private practice space together and run workshops. In 2020 we continue to enjoy bringing a skilled and fresh approach to working with images, assemblage and other creative adventures in a workshop setting.
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.
Justine and Nicole 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 with Justine or Nicole 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.
