Your counsellor, Janet Burford, holds a Bachelor of Social Science (Counselling) and currently completing a Master of Counselling Practice qualification, is registered with the Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia (PACFA Reg. No. 25282) and is committed to professional and personal development through ongoing study, workshops and supervision.
Janet’s strength lies in her ability to connect with others in a caring, empathic and supportive way that conveys a non-judgmental respect for each individual. Janet’s overall goal is to support people in their unique context, encouraging individuals to explore and create choices that are life-empowering.
Seeking counselling can be a big step. As your counsellor, I respect the uniqueness of you and your life story and endeavour to provide a supportive environment while exploring the issues and concerns you want to bring into the counselling room. I seek to honour your strengths while gently nudging you to look at those things that may be an obstacle to valued living. The benefits of professional counselling include confidentiality, an opportunity to talk to a listening professional in a safe, non-judgmental environment and being offered tools to choose and use for personal growth and development.
