As a Marriage and Family Counsellor, Trauma Therapist and Family Life Educator, Swanie provides counselling for children, marital therapy for couples, and individual personal therapy. She has walked with many whose lives were broken by childhood trauma, divorce, losses and abuse. She is a draw to many children struggling with life traumas, depression and anxiety.
She has helped individuals grow and recover through integration of cognitive behaviour techniques with evidenced based psychodynamic therapy (attachment psychotherapy, emotionally focused therapy and play therapy), customised to the unique needs and goals of her clients. She sees the potential every individual has for growth, healing and wholeness, and strives to empower each one to find a purpose along their way of recovery.
