Hoarding – Leonie Sanders

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

Hoarding: Hoarding is characterised by an inability to part with possessions because of a perceived need to save them. An individual usually experiences great distress at the thought of getting rid of any of their possessions resulting in an excessive accumulation of items. An individual may then be subjected to physical health risks such as:

  • Increased risk of falls
  • Injury or being trapped by shifting or falling items
  • Fire hazards
  • Undertaking personal care, such as bathing or cooking

(In home consultations available for clients living in the southern region of Brisbane at no extra cost)

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.
