Hi, I'm Nerida, I'm so glad you found me!

My name is Nerida Dunkerley. I am a counsellor, psychotherapist and clinical supervisor. I offer these services to individuals, couples, families, and groups in a safe, confidential, and culturally supportive environment. I specialise in couples and family counselling, addiction, premarital counselling, and individual counselling.

I am a highly skilled and empathetic counsellor/psychotherapist with over 30 years of professional experience. Throughout my career, I have worked in private practice and the health sector, allowing me to gain a diverse range of expertise.

I have completed a Master of Counselling & Psychotherapy as well as a Bachelor of Counselling. Additionally, I am a clinical member of the Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia (PACFA), further validating my knowledge and skills in the field. As a PACFA Accredited Clinical Supervisor, I am passionate about promoting self-care and prioritising the well-being of therapists, a “therapy first” approach to supervision.

One of my specialised areas is Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), for which I have received comprehensive training. I am actively involved in facilitating DBT groups at a Private Psychiatric Hospital. I have extensive experience working with clients who have a history of traumatic events, including complex trauma. To enhance my therapeutic approach, I also incorporate Somatic and Schema therapy techniques and Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing (EMDR).

In addition to individual therapy, I am a Certified Facilitator in the Prepare/Enrich marriage preparation program. This certification allows me to provide valuable guidance and support to couples as they embark on their journey together. Furthermore, I have completed Level 1 and 2 John Gottman Method Couples Therapy Training, further expanding my expertise in working with couples.

Overall, I am dedicated to helping individuals and couples navigate their challenges and achieve positive outcomes in their lives.
