About Me

Hi everyone, it's a privilege to connect with you here. Over the years I have supported individuals facing challenges such as negative self-beliefs, emotion dysregulation, anxiety, depression, stress, burnout, trauma, parenting and life transitions. I wholeheartedly believe that everyone has the capacity to overcome their challenges and function at their full potential, given the right tools, resources and support. My mission is to empower my clients to step into their personal power, heal from unhelpful beliefs and patterns so that they can experience more love, fulfilment and joy in their lives. 

 

As someone who also has lived experience of trauma and its associated manifestations, I am especially attuned to the deep-seated impacts these experiences have on the Nervous System and day-to-day functioning, as well as the important need for a trauma-sensitive approach in therapy. That's why I started Haven for Hearts Counselling and Therapy. I wanted to create a therapeutic space that feels safe and welcoming. A nurturing place where you can commence the processes of self-discovery, unpacking what you are currently experiencing in your life and healing with my guidance and support.

As someone who was born in Vietnam and relocated to Australia at a young age, my experiences navigating different cultural norms and values have not only shaped who I am but also instilled in me a unique perspective for cultural sensitivity. This enables me to bring an inclusive and empathetic approach in my practice as a therapist, as I have an appreciation for how different cultural and societal contexts play a role in shaping identities, personal values and relationship dynamics. 

My interest lies in helping my clients feel heard, understood and supported so they can start to connect with their true nature and learn to live their lives from a place of wholeness instead of limiting beliefs. I am a firm believer that life is a mirror and that our outer world reflects our inner world and once we start to understand that, we have so much more power than we can imagine.

Education:

  • Bachelor of Behavioral Science (Psychology)

  • Graduate Diploma of Counselling (Youth & Family Therapy)

  • Root-Cause Therapy (Lvl 1 & 2), Kids Yoga Teacher (Lvl 1)

"I had an awesome session with Kate. It felt awesome to feel like someone understands me and what I've been through. I got more out of one session with Kate than my previous therapist who I had seen for 12 weeks."

"Working with Kate right now, going deep into my past trauma. It took me a long time to find someone that could help me and finally, even if I am from another continent, I am starting to feel the healing process. Kate did not only “unpack” for me what I felt was the problem, but also did bring me back to the origin of why this became a problem in the present day. I was stuck, and now even if I know I have a lot of work to do on myself, I am unstuck. So grateful to have found her. Thank you!"

"My time with Kate has been pivotal for my growth and healing this year. She's been able to support me at a very difficult time, and provide guidance and a safe environment for me to work through what I need to at my pace. I've been able to feel the impact of our sessions in my day to day life with my beliefs and approaches that I struggled much more with before working with her. I would certainly recommend working with her to help locate and heal your inner issues, it's had such a positive impact. Many thanks to you Kate."

"Kate is a lovely, compassionate, gentle therapist who listens intently and allowed me to draw insightful conclusions about my being through her guided root cause healing sessions. There is a spaciousness and patience about her presence that makes one feel at ease. She is supportive without being didactic but was also able to offer tools to help me navigate an uncharacteristically difficult time. I am grateful for my journey with Kate"
