If nothing ever changed, there'd be no butterflies.
Welcome to the Butterfly Courage website.
If you are having a relationship or life problem, I am able to help. Over the past 7 years working in private practice, I have worked with all manner of people and believe I can help you with your problem.
I am Renee McDonald and I am a Counsellor and Psychotherapist. I am not a practicing psychologist, so do not participate in the medicare program. The good news for you is then you need no referral.
My counselling and psychotherapy is a more holistic approach to life and more closely aligned with the natural therapy modalities.
Rapport means a great deal in counselling and the helping professions. I offer warmth, compassion, care and life experience. I am not somebody who has just had life experience out of a book.
Generally, the aim of counselling is to develop insight into your life and what may have caused some of your life problems. This may assist with changing such problems or patterns in you life. It empowers you with your life choices. Butterfly Courage offers a low cost, professional counsellingservice for a large range of difficulties or problems. All counsellingwith Butterfly Courage takes place in a supportive, confidential, compassionate and non-threatening environment.
I have experience with assisting all manner of clientele.
Some of the problems I work with include:
Couples and Family Therapy
Depression & anxiety
Performance coaching & counselling
Communication & interpersonal skills
Grief, loss and bereavement
Balancing work & family
Counselling for children
Cross cultural counselling
Recruitment & staffing problems
Ethical issues for counsellors and welfare workers
I take all enquiries seriously and your details are kept in the strictest confidence.
