Meet the team
Ainslee is an experienced counsellor with a clinical interest in addiction, relationship issues and complex mental health issues. She is an accredited Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing (EMDR) therapist for trauma, addiction, grief/ loss, anxiety and depression.
With this therapeutic approach, she has enabled her clients to reframe and let go of traumatic experiences and debilitating beliefs, leading to self-empowerment and improved overall mental wellbeing. Throughout her career, Ainslee has worked in a variety of settings and has spent the past three years at a private practice where she focuses on EMDR trauma therapy as a key approach.
Since 2018, she has worked with Women’s Support in WA, counselling domestic violence victims who have experienced relationship and parenting issues as well as providing referrals to support services and co-facilitating support groups. Ainslee is deeply experienced in Critical Incident Trauma (CIT) counselling, both onsite and offsite, as well as providing psychological first aid.
Through her focus on EMDR trauma therapy, Ainslee hopes to help her patients suffering with trauma, drug and alcohol addiction, relationship issues and other mental health conditions find peace and achieve positive, lasting progress.
