Couples Therapy – Leonie Sanders

Leonie Sanders       Quals: Dip Mgt, B Psych (Hons), M Org Psych, MAPS

Couples Therapy: When two people join together from two different family cultures, creating a new family culture, difficulties are bound to occur! Different family cultures have different implied family values, but when these values are not made explicit, conflict can arise. Bringing unaddressed family of origin issues into a relationship can create problems that are often confusing and overwhelming to both partners. In order to fully understand the behaviours we exhibit in our adult relationships, we must first become familiar with why we developed those behaviours in our childhood.

Counselling Approach: Leonie uses a combination of Family Systems Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) to develop an approach suited to her client’s individual needs. Within this framework, she remains solution-focussed, and works collaboratively with individuals to achieve the desired outcomes.

Fees:  Sliding Scale depending on circumstances, usually $220 for initial appointment, $180 thereafter. Medicare and health rebates may apply.

Availability: Usually within a week. Mobile services may be available please call reception for more information.
