    Meet our team of professionals

    Alice Day
    Mental Health Social Worker

    Alice is a senior social worker, with particular interest and experience in generalist clinical counselling in a Health setting and private practice working with adults, couples, adolescents, children and families/carers.

    Alice has had many years of training in different counselling theories and now uses multiple modalities using an integrative counselling approach dependent on whom she is working with.

    Alice uses focussed psychological strategies when a client presents with a Mental Health Care Plan from their GP or Psychiatrist. Alice also works with clients in helping them to understand the association between their past experiences and their current behaviour and character structure.

    Influences in developmental years as we understand how they are shaped by these past attachments and experiences, gives clients increasing ability to exert control over their present functioning. Although there is little to be gained from blaming the past for the way a person is now, research has shown that it is very useful to understand and work with the past as it pertains to a person’s current situation, if relevant to the presenting issue.

    Alice has a breadth of experience in assessing and working effectively with people experiencing:

    • Victims of Crime / Adult Survivors of Childhood Sexual Assault – Females and Males
    • Domestic and Family Violence
    • Anger Management
    • Relationship Difficulties
    • Family conflicts
    • Cancer Support for clients and Carers

     

    Alice works Monday through to Thursday.
