Hello, I’m Dominie Nelson

I am a counsellor, supervisor and educator with nearly 20 years of experience. What’s important to me is that through counselling you are equipped and supported to meet your goals, hopes and dreams. In counselling we work together to identify what gets in the way of you living your chosen life from your best self. Safety and respect are important to me, and I listen carefully so I can understand what is important to you. We all have strengths and abilities and as we talk together we will identify and use your strengths to achieve your dreams.

In my professional life I have lectured and taught counsellors and educators. Subjects I have taught include personal resilience and wellbeing, communication skills, management of and recovery from trauma,  and grief and loss support. I have personal experience in managing health challenges and the impact of abuse and neglect. As a married woman and mother of 3 adult children and 5 grandchildren I have plenty of life experience.

I enjoy all aspects of my work, and have a particular interest in supporting those who have suffered in life and relationships, to make things better for you.
