Charmaine works with the whole being of an individual, which consists of their actions, emotions, thoughts, spirituality and surroundings, to guide them in finding the natural remedies for anxiety and depression.

As a registered therapist, Charmaine also provides counselling services through Better Access, Chronic Disease Program, TAC, Victims of Crime and NDIS. She also offers home visits if needed.

Steve Holmes

Clinical Family Therapist, Narrative Therapist, Men's and Couples Therapist

Steve is a clinical family therapist with extensive experience with couples. He supports men and boys who are striving to move away from their old ways that have harmed their relationships with people whom they love and care about. 

He combines counselling and coaching as he encourages these men to pursue healthy actions in their lives. His strategy supports their strengths, love, desires and values, which ultimately lead them towards creating better relationships. 

Through their sessions with Steve, many young and adult men have discovered better ways of countering frustration, anger, situational sadness, mistrust, fear, difficulties in parenting, high alcohol use, and partner conflict.
