Warm, Experienced, Relational
Hi I'm Heather Lilley and I founded Argrove Counselling because I am passionate about helping adults and children live mentally and emotionally healthy lives. I believe in the potential of every person to heal, grow and develop a sense of ownership over the decisions in their lives.
I've worked in various roles over the last 30 years as an EMDR therapist, Counsellor and Social Worker. While I have experience with a broad range of mental health issues, I have a particular interest in working with children and adults who have experienced trauma, complex trauma or who are living with anxiety. I also have experience working with people who are struggling with alcohol and other drug dependencies.
One of my other interests is supervising other therapists and Social Workers. I've previously worked at a couple of local Universities where I've enjoyed supervising and teaching Bachelor and Masters students who are just starting out in their journey as counsellors and psychotherapists.
For those of you who are interested, my qualifications include
Masters in Counselling (Murdoch University),
Post Graduate Diploma Advanced Social Work (La Trobe University)
Bachelor of Social Work (Curtin University).
I am an Accredited Mental Health Social Worker, a member of the Australian Association of Social Workers and a member of the EMDR Association of Australia.
