Find balance with the modern counsellor
The most important relationship you have is the one with self
My name is Nicole Brittain and I am the founder of the modern counsellor. I am an accredited counsellor and psychotherapist with PACFA. I have experience working in alcohol and drug rehabs, help lines and the biggest learning education... life. I draw upon my personal and professional experience to assist you to find your content authentic self.
My passion is in counselling specifically the field of childhood trauma including all symptoms that arise from it like addiction and substance abuse.
I take a holistic approach to recovery and harm reduction. I believe there are many factors that are needed to support and contribute to your successful journey (this is not just counselling).
I have particular interest in parents dealing with addiction and substance abuse. Being a mother myself I intimately know the pressures family life can bring.
I can support and assist with addictions and substance abuse with alcohol, drugs, food, gambling, gaming, shopping, pornography, sex and mobile phones. No matter what you have trouble controlling in your life they all have a common thread...complex trauma.
I believe all addiction and substance abuse is rooted in trauma. Together we will slowly and safely unpack your story and shine hope and healing where it's needed most for you to once again become your authentic, content self you always were meant to be.
