Hello! I’m Brooke
Therapist and Accredited Mental Health Social Worker
Couples & Family Therapy
My Approach & Values
I am an Australian Association of Social Workers Accredited Mental Health Social Worker (AMHSW) based in Brisbane. I have extensive experience working with children, parents, couples and families from a client-centred, attachment and developmental framework.
Working from an attachment and developmental framework means that I am inherently interested in the role that our primary relationships in our early years have informed the ways that we see the world – how we think, feel, react and our ability to regulate our behaviour and emotions. I help you understand your relationship – with your partner, parents, children or yourself.
When parents come to see me about particular challenges that they may be having with their child – whether it be from newborn to adult, I work with the parents to understand their child better – to see the expression of behaviours and emotions in the context of their age and development and to identify strategies that are meaningful to your children’s developmental stage.
"All behaviour has meaning. Some is just harder to understand"
"You can't teach a child a skill that they aren't developmentally ready to learn"
"Value the relationship more than being right"
I would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which I work; the Yuggera people and their Elders, past, present and emerging.
Always was, always will be, Aboriginal land.
