Women’s Counselling Program
Theresa Swan offers individual counselling for self-identified women, aged 19 and older, who have experienced any type of abuse/trauma at any time in her life.
Theresa works from a feminist perspective using a trauma- informed approach to supporting women. There is no one-fits all approach and each individual will be assisted in finding out what works best for them.
Within the Women’s Counselling Program we aim to offer a safe space to address issues that have arisen from challenging experiences and focuses on empowering women to move forward as they choose. This can include naming and understanding the type of abuse experienced, exploring and identifying coping strategies & strengths, working with the neurobiology of trauma and increasing a sense of safety in their lives.
