Counselling and Psychology can sometimes feel clinical and impersonal. We do things differently.

I feel a great therapist is considerate, warm and patient who listens to the needs of her clients. As a trauma-informed Social Worker in Private Practice with the foundation of a Psychology degree, I use a holistic approach that is tailored to each person’s unique and individual situation. This is why you choose a Boutique Private Practice.

Using evidence-based psychological theories backed by realistic achievable strategies I help you to make a positive difference when you leave each session. All parties are heard equally and have the space to express their perspective, ultimately building stronger genuine empathetic connections.

What We Do

We offer a range of services to provide you with support for your unique needs

Therapy should be interesting and enjoyable. We want you to look forward to attending sessions with our therapist in Brisbane for every single appointment - knowing that it’s a safe, comfortable environment.

So often clients feel embarrassed to seek supportive therapy and counselling, or only come in times of crisis. They feel like they have failed in some way by asking for help. But this is absolutely not the case!

Speaking with a professional for regular therapy in Brisbane is an investment in yourself. We create meaningful ‘therapeutic relationships’, so you are comfortable to talk about what is going on in your life. We welcome everyone, and encourage you to feel comfortable.

We make psychology interesting, relatable and attainable. Mental strength is what we all need to be happy and content. This is true self-care. It will:

  • Guarantee success in your life
  • Improve your self-esteem as you learn healthy boundaries
  • Help you evolve into the person you desire to be

You are not alone. You may not have had control over the events of your past but only you can decide if they define - or motivate - you.

What We Do

Confidentiality & Ethics

I inspire positive change so you are excited about the possibilities for your future. I give you the tools to:

  • Empower yourself
  • Improve your wellbeing
  • Feel supported, encouraged and understood

This is why I have made a career of helping others. Everyone has a voice and we all deserve to be heard. A Voice for the Voiceless.

As a professional with over 10 years education and experience - my ethics, morals and values dictate I always do the right thing for my clients. I vow to do no harm. I will always conform to Psychology and Social Workers Industry standards, so you know everything remains private and confidential without judgement.

Feel Welcomed

My goal is to make you feel welcomed in an environment as peaceful and calm as possible. Through my work, I am committed to helping to reduce anxiety and make you feel welcomed. This is your time.

We hope that you will feel relaxed, so you can open up about what you are going through. My boutique private Practice ensures a personalised and welcoming environment, making it easier to talk about difficult subjects.

At Supportive Therapy, We provide a safe place for humans of all ages, cultural backgrounds, diverse sexual and gender identities and expressions, faith, and lifestyle choices. We want you to feel accepted, included and welcomed.

Feel Protected

If at any time you feel that guidelines have not been followed, or you feel negatively about any interaction, honestly, that is not our intention.

We never want you to feel upset, offended or unheard. Everyone should learn and grow from negative experiences. If you are dissatisfied or offended, please know you can tell us so we can improve.

Feel Safe

All clients must agree to and sign the ‘Consent for Therapy’ agreement. This is to understand your rights and responsibilities.

A copy of this form can be found here or at the bottom of the page, in addition to the ethical guidelines I adhere to as part of practising private therapy in Brisbane.

If you would like any clarifications, please speak with our friendly staff and we will help decipher any jargon that may be unfamiliar.

Our Team

Meet Elena

I started my boutique private Practice to make a positive difference – to give a voice to the voiceless. I understand what it feels like to feel deeply alone and completely hopeless. My goal is to inspire positive change in people’s lives. You are always reminded that you are important. In my experience, finding the right therapist can change your life.

By exploring your current situation and investigating your history, we uncover patterns you may not even be aware of. This is empowerment.

We work on helping you build your ‘internal Jenga’, so you feel strong and confident. This gives you permission to evolve into your authentic self, healing past traumas and creating healthy, happy relationships.
