FOOD ALLERGY COUNSELLING
I'm Simone, a mother of 2, a Registered Professional Counsellor (MACA) and a Registered Nurse (AHPRA). I’m a general counsellor with a speciality area in food allergy emotional, social and behavioural health and wellbeing.
I provide support, guidance, information and education to empower you to find your safe and confident direction. Individual issues require individual approaches with a deeper understanding in my speciality area. I use an evidence-based approach to counselling gained from different sources. The techniques I may use include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Person Centred Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Mindfulness, Behaviour change, and Narrative Therapy. These techniques can be extremely helpful in gaining greater personal insight, finding your inner strength and confidence, managing symptoms of stress and anxiety, balance feelings and emotions, and gaining clarity to move forward in your life to achieve the positive change that you are looking for.

Consulting is the service you may seek to answer a specific problem. Simone, as the expert, drives these sessions offering direct, professional advice about a topic that you raise in relation to manoeuvring safely through life as a family while living with food allergies. A ‘consultation’ is generally only one session. Simone will have communicated with you prior to your appointment and will be prepared with expert information to complete the session.
Sessions run for one full hour or as negotiated.
Consulting sessions are available via online conferencing, telephone, or in the privacy and comfort of your own home if you live in Melbourne, Geelong or the Surf Coast.
