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 upset, stuck or overwhelmed. I specialise in relationships, trauma and anxiety, however I also have extensive experience dealing with all the issues listed under ‘Our Services’.
Clients have described me as calm, kind and supportive.
Each session differs depending on your needs. Some sessions will be purely about listening and validation, others will involve more active investigation, coaching, or practical strategies (especially with couples). Many sessions are a mix. Although I am a counsellor I practice therapeutically. Again the focus of sessions depends on your goals, and whether you have come to deal with your immediate situation or want to enter therapy.
I am qualified, insured, and a registered member of The Australian Counselling Association. I also have extensive business and life experience.
I am trained in the world leading Gottman Method Couples Therapy, and Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for couples, plus Person-centred counselling, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, Schema 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 is enormously rewarding. I would be honored to be invited to be a part of your journey towards a happier life.
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.
