Overview

Avrille specialises in working with individuals who have experienced trauma, and the symptoms of depression, anxiety and stress. Avrille facilitates awareness and brings understanding to how these symptoms feel in our body, their impact on how we interact in the world and in our relationships. Avrille has specialised skills working within the perinatal period and with the infant- parent dyad where there has been challenges or trauma that impact attachment and development. Avrille supports parents when there has been difficulties around pregnancy, birth and adjusting to parenthood and when conflict occurs in family relationships due to different values in parenting, culture and traditions. As a woman of colour and migrant, Avrille has the lived experience of what it feels like to ‘navigating two worlds’ and is passionate about providing space to explore family dynamics, identity and what it means to work and live as a settler on this land. Avrille utilizes visual and creative therapy techniques alongside talk therapy. When used in combination, it engages both hemispheres of the brain, and allows for innovative problem solving, deeper insight, and a stronger sense of self and wellness. Avrille is a qualified Accredited Mental Health Social Worker and Arts Therapist with over 12 years experience across community mental health and private practice. Avrille uses a mix of evidence-based interventions with a humanistic and psychodynamic lens. She is trauma informed, attachment based, and uses Gestalt style approaches. .She is registered with the AASW, ANZACATA, a member with AAIMH and a registered Circle of Security® Parent Educator. Avrille can also provide clinical supervision for social work and cultural supervision. Avrille can provide a medicare rebate with a Mental Health Care Plan from your GP.
