‘REGROUP’ means to reassemble after attack or defeat OR to stop for a short time and prepare, before continuing to do something that is difficult. Our name and logo, convey recovery processes that bring parts together, and achieve the therapeutic objective to align cognition, emotion and the body’s responses.

In counselling with Joy, ALL are welcome. No topic is off limits and your comfort, is priority. We cultivate an environment of care, curiosity, clarity and containment, as your treatment plan develops; tailored to your individual, biological, psychological and social needs.

The REGROUP ETHOS ensures you will feel heard and seen, as Joy connects with youth and the aged alike. Together we will manage mental health challenges, life stressors, facilitate change, support adjustment and enhance function. You can expect to understand yourself and others better, learn new ways of seeing, and trial tools and targeted psychological strategies, proven to improve coping, connection and communication.

Joy has extensive experience with individuals from age 12 years+, right through the lifespan, to providing end of life care. Early training was in public health at the Royal Melbourne Hospital working with a full range of conditions, across all hospital departments, and collaborating with other Allied Health and Medical specialists, to optimise client outcomes.

Outside of private practice, Joy also has 14 years of counselling and psychotherapy experience, with adolescents and their families in school settings, and has worked extensively with academic and support staff.
