Counseling services for all ages in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland
What to expect...
I have a private, home-based practice in Peachester where I offer counseling services for individuals of all ages as well as couples. Primarily using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and a person-centered approach, I will challenge you to question your current thought and behavior patterns to allow for positive changes.
At My Wellness Mindset, you can expect a friendly, warm experience to safely explore underlying issues which commonly show up as symptoms such as anxiety, depression, stress, interpersonal conflict, sleep and diet issues, motivation and simply feeling 'out of balance.' I do not use a diagnostic approach to therapy, I don't believe that you are your mental health issues, but instead, it is simply a part of you that you can learn to understand and manage in healthy ways.
My goal in working with you (whether as an individual or couple), is to teach you the skills that you need to create a healthier, happier life so that you no longer need me.

Hi, my name is Kierra... Now just to get this out of the way, I am older than I look. Although I have spent many years studying, my lived experiences are what make me a compassionate and down-to-earth therapist! Feedback from my clients is commonly apreciation that I am a real person they can relate to, rather than someone just giving advice based on textbooks. This is something that I pride myself on, and strive to offer every person that I work with.
I am in the final stages of my psychology degree and diploma of counseling, with previous qualifications in Youth Ministry, Human Resources, CBT and ACT. I have also completed Gottman levels I and II (couples therapy). I primarily use a CBT approach to therapy, which basically means challenging your automatic thought and behavior patterns to make room for new and improved choices.
I believe in taking a holistic approach to mental health, there is no magical 'cure' that I can prescribe that will make everything better, but I will equip you with the knowledge and power you need to work through your issues, and become better prepared for whatever challenges life may bring in the future.
