Monika holds membership with the Australian Counselling Association and has a rich history of experiences working in a range of settings through her career.
Monika’s approach provides an opportunity where clients feel heard and valued and allows clients to explore and address the challenges and difficulties that they face. This approach empowers clients to engage in development and personal growth. Monika deeply believes that everyone is an expert of their own life, and equipped to deal with the challenges, life throws at them. Being self-aware of underlying thoughts, feelings, and emotions can assist greatly in finding the possible solutions to presenting challenges and disruption.

Monika genuinely believes; sharing your story creates a sense of relief, and an opportunity to examine it without any judgements or labels.
