Siloam Wellness Centre Counselling is a trauma-informed support service for those experiencing intrusive emotional, psychological, social and/or physical symptoms associated with past or present overwhelming or traumatic life events.

Our desire is to provide a safe, respectful and caring therapeutic space where individuals are free to explore experiences and issues that have depleted inner resources and are a hindrance to healing and wellness.

With an eclectic range of interventions and foundations in trauma therapy, we focus on holistic health and recovery through building a safe therapeutic relationship, emotional tolerance and regulation, self-compassion, identity and relational skills.

We provide individual therapy for:

Relationships | Life transitions | Self-care & personal growth 
Anxiety | Depression | Trauma, childhood trauma & abuse
Grief & loss | Spirituality | Disability & carer support

Lynnette offers a safe and supportive counselling experience, and uses a trauma-informed, person-centered approach. This means working collaboratively with clients to focus on their individual needs and goals. Lynnette values the therapeutic relationship, with the understanding that movement toward growth and change does not occur in isolation, but rather in relationship and connection with others.

Lynnette draws on her nursing experience and professional counselling studies to offer unique therapeutic services. Her background as a Registered Nurse imparted key skills such as empathy and warmth and gave her sound knowledge of body physiology. Her interest in the mind/body connection and completing a Master of Counselling has deepened her understanding of individuals from a physical, emotional, social, and spiritual perspective. This opens the therapeutic space to explore and integrate research-based strategies in a holistic way. Attending to the unique inner experiences of each individual offers opportunities to make meaning of their lives.

Lynnette is passionate about growth and continues to explore new learning experiences both personally and professionally. She is currently expanding her knowledge of Auslan (Australian sign language) and further education in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT).
