Retirement: Have you recently retired or are you about to retire? Often the focus of this transition in life is financial planning, however it is also important to focus on how you will manage your social and emotional wellbeing. What will you do with your free time? How will you cope being around your partner/children/friends more or will you have less social contact and how will you cope with that? How will you cope with the change in level of responsibility? Will you feel useless? Let’s work together to make this time of your life the best it can be.

Counselling Approach: Seeing a psychologist to help plan your retirement can provide benefit. Laura works from a client-centred perspective – listening to the story of the client and letting the client set the goals, whilst utilising her psychological skills to assist the client to develop their own skills to achieve their goals. This can incorporate aspects of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) including Mindfulness, Motivational Interviewing and Narrative Therapy. She is experienced in working with young people and adults from various cultural backgrounds, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander.
