MEET OUR PRINCIPAL COUNSELLOR
Kris Halls has degrees in counselling, clinical supervision and mental health. She is a PACFA licenced clinical counsellor (# 24778).
She has many years of experience working in the field of clinical and mental health. Her interests relate to understanding and helping people who have experienced trauma, self-esteem issues, grief and loss. Specifically, she has been involved in the treatment of children and adults who have been subject to various types of traumatic acute and chronic abuse. Abuse may lead to anxiety, depression, relationship and self-worth issues, for example. Traumatic events have been shown to have life-long consequences. These events often lead to poor quality of life and health-related conditions. Kris assists clients in developing strategies and implementing solutions to address these challenges.
Over many years Kris has worked in a variety of positions in Western Australia. Recently Kris spent 4 years living and working in the Middle East, specifically in Muscat, Oman. There she was working with people of different races, ethnic origins and faiths who despite this diversity, were experiencing difficulties covering a range of mental health and relationship-related issues.
Kris is a pragmatic, empathetic professional who brings to the therapeutic environment a person-centred and solution-focused approach to psychological wellness and well-being. She uses a range of psychotherapeutic tools, such as cognitive-behaviour therapy, mindfulness training and stress management, to assist people to resolve difficult challenges they may be facing in their lives.
Her underlying philosophy is one based upon a humanistic and holistic approach. She is a passionate advocate of mind-body integration. Overall, Kris provides a safe, secure and empathetic professional environment that facilitates change and healing.
