Hi, my name is Crystal Halloran I am the founder of the Nurture & Grow Counselling service. I am a caring, empathetic & non-judgment - professional Counselling practitioner who puts the client at the forefront of every interaction by nurturing each person's journey, choices, development & autonomy in a safe & therapeutic environment.
I am highly qualified with a bachelor's degree in Counselling & hold various certified training: A diploma in Management - community services, Cert IV in Youth work, Cert IV training & assessment, Cert III in Children Services, Mental Health First Aid, & current First Aid & CPR. I have legal clearances: Working with Children Check (WWCC) & NDIS workers check (NDISWC) & National Police clearance check.
To complement my academic & professional training, I also have 15 years of experience across the social, community & welfare sectors including; Business owner/operator: Counselling Service, Management -T/L for disability services, independent contractor - Support Worker: disability, NDIS - Local Area Coordinator, Case Management - homeless children & young people & young families.
My therapeutic approach when working with clients is from a holistic position & believe each person has specific needs, challenges & goals. I believe there is no one size approach that fits all, therefore I use integrated evidence-based counselling & psychological interventions to support each client in their presentations.
The integrated counselling & psychotherapy theoretical orientations & interventions that can be drawn upon (not limited to) are; Person-centred therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy & behaviour therapy, child-centred therapy - play therapy, solution focused brief therapy, individual psychology & positive psychology, recreational therapy, creative therapy: art & sand tray, somatic therapy, dialectical behaviour therapy, trauma informed therapy & psychoeducation to support capacity building in a range of areas.
