Hello! I’m Brooke

Therapist and Accredited Mental Health Social Worker
My name is Brooke Shelton and I am an Accredited Mental Health Social Worker and perinatal, child and family therapist. I offer therapy to children, teens, adults, couples and family’s, that are experiencing emotional and relationship difficulties and mental health related concerns. I regularly receive referrals relating to the difficulties with conceiving, parenting, couples in crisis, and family’s that are struggling. I work with individuals and family’s of all shapes and sizes, genders and sexualities.
I offer therapy from an attachment and trauma informed perspective, and work primarily from a psychodynamic approach. I am also an accredited Neuroprotective Developmental Care (NDC), ‘Possums’ practitioner, meaning I can also offer sleep and settling support without utilising any form of controlled crying.
Most people come to see me as they need a change, something isn’t working, but they can’t seem to make the change on their own. With my training and experience I offer a space where you can understand your current concerns and find another way forward.

Seeing children, teens and adults, I offer the flexibility of in-person sessions in my rooms or online.

Couples & Family Therapy

Couple and Family Therapy; for all the diverse couples and families

Online Workshops

A growing library of workshops to watch from the comfort of your own home.

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"

~ Brooke Shelton

"You can't teach a child a skill that they aren't developmentally ready to learn"

~ Brooke Shelton

"Value the relationship more than being right"

~ Brooke Shelton

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.
