“OUT OF YOUR VULNERABILITIES WILL COME YOUR STRENGTH.”
HERE FOR YOU
I’m Beth Castieau and I am here to assist you through life’s most complex and difficult matters. I truly care about your well-being and guarantee all of my clients receive psychological services catered to their individual needs.
Since 2000, I have provided a number of specialised mental health services to clients overcoming traumatic life experiences in a wide range of settings. As an experienced clinician, I realise that there is no such thing as a "one size fits all" approach to helping individuals heal, grow, and make positive changes. I continue to focus on improving my practice skills and knowledge through professional development activities.
I am informed by several evidence-based approaches in my clinical practice, delivering psychological counselling to individuals, couples, family systems, or groups. These include: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT); Mindfulness; Emotion-Focused Therapy; Solution Focused Therapy; Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT); Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT); Motivational Interviewing and other behavioural interventions to assist the process of change.
Most recently I have been trained and continue to develop my skills in Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) by not only attendance at training, but ongoing consultancy with world-renowned experts and practitioners to assist me to master this approach and by 2020, become accredited with EMDRAA.
At Castieau Consultancy, your well-being is my number one priority, and I go above and beyond to help you through all your obstacles. Get in touch with me today to schedule an appointment or find out more.
