About the Therapist

Sheree Bootes

I am a qualifed member of the Australian Association of Social Workers (AASW) and the Australian Association of Family Therapy (AAFT). I am registered as an Accredited Mental Health Social Worker. I have also completed four years of training in Gestalt Psychotherapy with the Gestalt Institute of Western Australia, and recognised as an Accredited Gestalt Psychotherapist. I am currently completing a Masters in Family Therapy after completing a Post-Graduate Diploma with the NSW Institute of Psychiatry. I have worked in the area of Mental Health for fifteen years assisting children, youth, adults, couples and families. My training and experiences have been recognised to provide psychological focussed therapy as a Medicare Provider. I have a special interest in  trauma and attachment.

I am a registered EAP (Employment Assistance Program) Provider. You may be eligible for free counselling services through your organisation or workplace. To access this service please contact your personnel officer for further information.

I have gathered a unique combination of skills and understandings to support you and those you love through both the ordinary and extraordinary challenges of life.

What inspires me most is witnessing individuals, families and groups stepping into more authentic and connected ways of relating and being.

Working from the Gestalt approach, I am able to help you understand how you have made meaning out of your early life experiences. From these meanings or stories, each of us develops habits of relating that may not always serve us. I will assist you to become aware of some of these fixed patterns, so that you can be more present in the here and now and enjoy more satisfying relationships.
