Culturally Responsive Therapy
Hi, I'm Sandi
I'm a registered mental health counsellor with experience providing therapy to adults, parents & adolescents. I've worked with Australia's leading mental health organisations including Headspace & Mind Australia, supporting people from all walks of life work through complex issues including trauma, family violence, PTSD, relationship/interpersonal issues, & mood disorders such as anxiety & depression.
I am a South Asian Woman of Colour, with an Australian-Sri Lankan Bicultural Identity. Through my lived experience I have gained a deep insight into how the cultural contexts in which we live and grow up shape our beliefs, identity, values, family dynamics and world-view.
It is with this understanding that I deliver culturally responsive therapy, by seeking to understand the unique nuances within your experiences and how this has shaped you today. Based on this, we can create a tailored treatment plan that's specific to you.
Culturally Sensitive Counselling
Individual counselling specifically for Culturally & Linguistically Diverse (CALD), Black, Indigenous & People of Colour (BIPOC) and migrant & refugee populations.
First Phone Call's FREE
Am I ready for therapy? Will my therapist really get me? Will it even work?
It's totally normal to feel unsure and have doubts about starting therapy, so I offer an FREE, no-commitment required, telephone consultation to help you take that first step.
