How do you want me to be here for you? Do you just need someone to talk to? I am here to listen. I can give you sound, helpful advice that will enable you to cope with whatever life may throw at you. I am an NDIS registered provider servicing the greater Ipswich area. 

Find time for you

Relax. Refresh. Renew.

Take some time out for yourself with therapy at The Creek Escape, our creek side rainforest centre overlooking tranquil paddocks and winding creeks. Let the day wash off you as you take some time out for you to replenish, offload, reset and

What do you want to talk about?

Do you just need someone to talk to? We are here to listen. We can give you sound, helpful advice that will enable you to cope with whatever life may throw at you. We look at things from a wholistic perspective.

Handle Emotions

Everything is possible as there is nothing we cannot talk about. We can meet at our rainforest centre therapy rooms, at your home, a cafe, wherever you are comfortable. Strong support delivered the way you want, when you want it, or need it most.

Solution Focused

Because every person is different, having a different set of issues, we work with you to achieve outcomes that benefit you. We deal with each individual equipping you with skills and tools to navigate whatever life has had to throw at you.

Deeper Burdens

Keeping a secret or thoughts to ourselves can exact a heavy toll. One burden people carry with complex trauma is “Can you (the therapist) handle me?” The fear is will we abandon you. We will never do that. Our job is to walk through the fire with you so you are not alone.
Expert therapy to cope with life's toughest challenges

Therapy, derived from the Latin therapīa, literally means healing. At Owen Kessels we are all about helping you find the pathway to that healing. In a safe environment where you can simply be yourself without judgement, we’ll work with you to help you learn new skills and achieve your personal goals.

Our expert counselling will help you develop effective strategies to deal with challenging emotions and behaviours, find happiness and lay the groundwork for good mental health and wellbeing. We’ll deliver support tailored to your unique circumstances where the end game is finding solutions which provide the maximum benefit to you.

Need someone to talk to?

We’re here to listen, and the good news is whatever challenges you are facing you don’t have to deal with them alone. There is no subject that is out of bounds. If you need to go there…then we’ll go there…in a non-threatening environment where confidentiality and your privacy are paramount.

If you’re a participant in the NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme) then we are a registered provider of therapeutic supports under the scheme. We can work with you to help you develop your NDIS plan and secure the funding for our therapy and counselling services. Our services are available in-person, online or via telephone.

Under the NDIS we can provide counselling on issues such as:

  • setting goals for better mental health
  • independent living
  • understanding the people around you and the world in general
  • developing self-care strategies
  • community activities
  • dealing with negative and destructive behaviours
  • finding employment
  • improving relationships with family, friends and employers
  • finding the pathway to a better life, happiness and wellbeing

We also have specific expertise in the areas of Autism, Anxiety, Bipolar Disorder and Family Therapy. We look at “therapy” as something we do with you…not to you. You should expect your therapist to make you feel respected and understood…and you will.
