Welcome to Cirrus Counselling
My name is Derek, an Accredited Mental Health Social Worker and therapist based in the Lismore (NSW) area. As a Social Worker I utilise Focussed Psychological Strategies to support a client in their journey towards wellness. I assist a client to look at alternative possibilities.
Using a transpersonal and Jungian approach, I am here to understand you, to listen respectfully, and to assist in finding greater meaning in life. Understanding our individual and personal psychology can really help in moving forward.
Talking doesn't always work, and so I also use art therapy and sandplay. These processes value the non-verbal; words are not as necessary. You don't have to be creative or an artist. Just have a willingness to explore and play; the insights will come!
Art Therapy is an expressive therapy that can be useful to work out issues around: anxiety, stress, decisions to make, seeking clarity, grief, addictions, pain, mental disorders, diseases, self-exploration and to gain insights.
Sandplay Therapy is another expressive therapy. Using sand, the container and objects that are symbolic, Sandplay Therapy can assist clients to gain emotional release and realisation. It can assist with developmental concerns and seeking resolution to long unresolved issues.
I specialise in: Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD-1) with Adults, Alcohol & Other Drugs, Group Art Therapy, LGBTI, Intersex, and Dream work.
