Ella Walker | Psychotherapist & Mental health Social worker
Ella Walker is an experienced Mental health Social worker and Psychotherapist who works with children, adolescents and adults in a strengths based approach. Ella incorporates elements of CBT, ACT, narrative, solution focused therapy and mindfulness in order to develop a person centred model which is unique to the individual. Ella will incorporate creative therapy and meditation into some sessions.
Her training as a social worker and counsellor has allowed for a diverse experience in working with people from a variety of cultural backgrounds with various issues. She is passionate about developing a therapeutic relationship which puts the client at ease and allows for positive outcomes. Ella is an excellent advocate for those who may need to find their voice, and a shoulder to lean on during times of adjustment, stress or grief and loss. She is passionate about assertive communication and developing self esteem in order to achieve your goals. If there was one motto which Ella applies to life its her belief in, ‘Being you.’ From her experience she has found that helping clients to explore their values, passion and shadow side, and becoming aware of external pressures which have shaped thoughts and beliefs, allows the client to really come into themselves and build their authentic connection to the world around them, thus enhancing their sense of wellbeing and volition in life.
Ella uses a diverse and eclectic array of strategies and interventions to help you express your future desires and release past hurts, and arms you with practical tools to help you on a daily level. Ella understands that one size does not fit all and that therapy is an individual journey which needs to be treated as such.
Ella is experienced working with those who are struggling with Anxiety and Depression, relationship and family breakdown, survivors of trauma, physical illness, substance abuse, eating disorders, self esteem issues, behavioural issues such as ADHD and Autism and grief and loss.
Ella is medicare accredited and offers bulk billing services under the Better access plan, requiring that you bring a mental health care plan to your first session which you can get from your GP.
