Carol Stackpoole is an accomplished counsellor who has experience from working in the industry for nearly two decades. Carol is also a member of the Australian Counselling Association and has experience working with individuals and groups, including children, adults, couples, and families with a broad range of presenting challenges.
Carol is an outcome focused counsellor with an extremely warm, considerate, and non-judgmental approach. She is also practical and helps clients understand their story, build goals, to begin to make steps to achieve those goals. Carol prides herself in always seeing the good in everything, and views clients as a sum of their total parts and not just wholly a construction of the issues they bring to the collaborative counselling space.
As every client is different, Carol concentrates on using a person-centred approach and pulls from a range of therapies to tailor all sessions to meet a specific client’s needs, strengths, and goals. These therapeutic modalities include, but are not limited to, Solution Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, and Gestalt Therapy. Carol's motivation and vested interest in helping clients through life’s challenges stems from her belief that once a person is able to make the most of their day, that they can then achieve their desired personal growth and live a fulfilling life.
