Eleanor Clayson

GradDip Counselling and Integrated Psychotherapy, BA (Psychology) Cert IV Life Coaching

Eleanor offers counselling and clinical supervision for therapists from our Rockingham clinic. She employs a respectful, relational approach with individuals, couples and families. Her practical counselling style nurtures insight and strategies for life that bring transformation to day to day living. Eleanor invests strongly into the counselling relationship with clients, understanding from research that this is essential for building trust and achieving sustained change. She believes in building a safe place in the counselling room where outcome-focused, individualised sessions are provided with genuineness and compassion.

Eleanor brings a range of experience and qualifications to her counselling, integrating various modalities of counselling into her practice such as Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Art and Play, Narrative Counselling and Solution Focused Therapy. Eleanor also offers a Life Coaching approach which looks at the space between where you are and moving forward to where you would like to be. She is a member of the Australian Counselling Association. She enjoys working with individuals of all ages and families.

Eleanor has a rich history of experience working with individuals, couples and groups. She has previously worked within a Residential AOD (Alcohol and Other Drugs) Rehabilitation program where she enjoyed working with a wide range of people, walking alongside them on their recovery journey. This experience has made her passionate about seeing young people equipped at an early age to thrive in the ebb and flow of life through good mental health strategies and partnering with them to build their resilience. A part of Eleanor’s focus over the last six years has been working with a variety of young people of different ages in both primary school and high school. Eleanor is passionate about family mental health, understanding that this begins with happy couples and marital relationships.

‘I have grown so much since starting with Eleanor. She challenges me to be better and she has a habit of stretching me without breaking me. She has been a great support and sounding board. I have already recommended her to others and will continue to do so!’

‘My son and I were really enlightened by Eleanor’s counselling and found her really gracious and kind’
