ABOUT ME-Daphne Middleton BSW(Hons)

As a fully qualified mental health and counselling practitioner, I have experience in working with a wide range of presenting problems. I am known for supporting and guiding people into obtaining clarity and insight invigorating hopefulness and effective problem solving activity. I bring compassion for everyone who engages in the process of developing their professional life and helping roles. My compassion has been formed by my clinical, mental health, supervisory and community based work roles alongside of a deep respect I hold for people’s ability to respond to 21st century workplace and personal caring role challenges that are in line with their values and to resist that which is unjust and beyond their control. 

My studies have been broad and I hold an Honours Degree in Social Work (University of Western Australia), have been an accredited Mental Health Social Worker with the Australian Association of Social Workers (AASW) for 15 years, comprehensive advanced study certificates in Narrative Therapy Counselling and Community Work from the Dulwich Centre (South Australia) , a Graduate Diploma in Art Education, (Edith Cowan University) and Trauma Informed Art Therapy and Compassion Fatigue Therapist trainings (Traumatology Institute Canada and Trauma Informed Practices and Expressive Art Therapy Institute, USA).
