Counsellor and Psychotherapist
My name is Chantal Burchett and I am a qualified Counsellor with substantial experience providing support to individuals and couples in therapy.
I am passionate about supporting you to make positive life changes and to achieve fulfilling relationships. My therapeutic approach is person-centred however I utilise various counselling modalities to support you in therapy.
The counselling journey provides an opportunity to explore aspects of your life in a supportive and non-judgemental environment. I will work with you to explore issues, identify areas for growth and to harness strategies to enhance your overall health and wellbeing.
My counselling career commenced at a large health promotion organisation with a focus on HIV prevention / support, and Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) health. During this time I developed a strong passion and commitment to supporting others to talk about subjects that are often considered taboo, in a safe environment free of stigma and discrimination.
My areas of speciality include:
Whilst I remain committed to my work in these areas, as my career has developed my work has diversified and I provide counselling for a broad range of issues. These include:
