Welcome to
Arena Counselling

Arena Counselling is small trauma informed and neurodiverse affirming counselling practice.


When you are ready, we will work with you to explore your concerns and help you to develop a deeper understanding of yourself.

We know that seeking out a counsellor is significant first step; having the strength to give voice to your difficulties is hard. Arena Counselling is a safe space where you will feel supported at all times so that, together, we can find the best way to understand and resolve your concerns.

No single approach fits everyone; this is why we draw on a variety of theories and tools to support your individual needs. 

We work in a holistic and non-pathologising way. Our therapeutic practice is informed by Internal Family Systems, Somatic Psychotherapy, and Self Psychology.

Arena Counselling is committed to the development of emerging practitioners in the Canberra region. We support Masters students to complete their practical placements.
