Trenna AlbrechtLife Design
Master of Counselling Practice, Graduate Diploma of Education (Education and Training of Adults)
Trenna is a compassionate, caring and non-judgemental counsellor. She realises that life brings many challenges, and has a keen interest in assisting people to thrive and succeed in the face of these challenges. Her counselling approach involves therapies that assists clients to grow in self-awareness, empowering them to make choices based on their own values and strengths, despite the trials that may be occurring in their life.
Trenna incorporates many kinds of therapies into her sessions depending on the client's needs, but favours Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT) as one of her foundational approaches. ACT supports people to build a rich and meaningful life while handling the pain that goes with it. Nothing gives her greater joy than helping clients disentangle themselves from unhelpful thoughts, feelings, urges, memories or images so that they can focus on and engage in what’s important in the here and now.
In relationship counselling, Trenna is interested in counselling practices that assists each partner to be heard and validated and to work with couples to help them regain their sense of connection. She uses many of the Gottman and Gottman intervention tools in her approach, as well as Emotionally Focussed Couples Therapy. Trenna works with clients to identify negative behaviour cycles that often develop in relationships and helps them learn new ways of interaction and connection.
Trenna is a Christian and would be happy to work with clients who wish to integrate their own Christian spiritual practices and beliefs into their therapy.
