Intergenerational Conflict – Leonie Sanders

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

Intergenerational Conflict: For the past 100 years, each new generation has been christened with a title to denote their place in history. Each generation is shaped by the influence of their parents and families and the events and trends occurring around them. Intergenerational conflict today can be found in how middle aged adults balance the needs of caring for their children on the one hand and their ageing parents on the other. Even within the generation conflict occurs when it is perceived that there is an unfair sharing of responsibilities by siblings for ageing parents followed by settlement issues with deceased estates.

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.

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

Seniors Counselling – Leonie Sanders

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

Seniors Counselling: Older adults do not often seek counselling because their generation has a negative perception about individuals who seek out this type of service. However, the pressures of living in a rapidly evolving society are seeing individuals of all ages needing help in understanding their changing circumstances. The following are some reasons why older adults may seek help:

  • Transition to living in aged care facilities
  • Family conflict
  • Addictions including drug, alcohol and gambling
  • Concerns over memory problems
  • Carer stress
  • Loneliness
  • Retirement
  • Stress related to having medical problems
  • End of life issues
  • Grief and loss
