Hello! I’m Brooke

Therapist and Accredited Mental Health Social Worker

My name is Brooke Shelton and I am a Brisbane-based perinatal, child and family therapist and Accredited Mental Health Social Worker. In my practice I see babies, children, adolescents, parents, couples and individuals. People often come and see me when they have concerns that they are not able to manage on their own. This means that the work I do with everyone is different and suited to your needs.

I work from a client-centered, attachment and developmental framework. This means that the work we do has a relationship focus, and together we develop a deeper understanding of your current concern to work out the best way forward. People often come to see me due to struggles with their mental health, unhappiness in their relationships, work and family life. 

Individual Therapy

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.

What this means is that I see the uniqueness in every individual and family and adjust my therapeutic processes accordingly.  I help you to uncover the best way forward so that you can deal with similar issues in the future.

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 uncover ways to have better relationships – 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; our First Nations people and their Elders, past, present and emerging.
