Our team

My name is Clare Randall, and I am the business owner and principal counsellor of Oak Tree Counselling. Welcome.

Most of my work involves helping clients who are emotionally upset, stuck, or overwhelmed.  Many couples and individuals are stuck with a challenging issue, or want to improve how they relate to others, or just want their life to be different. I specialise in relationships, which is my passion, but I also have extensive experience dealing with all the issues listed under ‘Our Services’.

Clients have described me as calm, kind, and encouraging. Each session differs depending on your needs and wishes. Some sessions will be purely about listening and validation, others will involve more active investigation, coaching, and practical strategies especially with couples. Many sessions are a mix. What I do have is a talent for getting to the core of an issue without forgetting your immediate needs.

I am qualified, insured, and a registered member of The Australian Counselling Association. In addition, I have extensive business and life experience. I am trained in several therapies including; Gottman Method Couples Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for couples, Person-centred counselling, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT or ‘mindfulness’), and Thought Field Therapy (The Tapping Therapy). It is my hope however that rather than experiencing therapy techniques, you leave your session feeling listened to, understood, validated, and supported.

I feel blessed to do a job that I love, and would be honored to be invited to be a part of your journey towards living the life you want. 

I am a member of:

  • The Australian Counselling Association (ACA)
  • The Anxiety Disorders Association of Victoria (ADAVIC)
  • The Post and Antenatal Depression Association (PANDA), and 
  • I am a certified ACT Therapist, and
  • A certified Thought Field Therapist.

I work school hours on Tuesday, and all day Wednesday and Saturday.

Appointments can be booked online 24/7, or by calling me on 0424 069 889 or 03 8060 8808.
