Today it is my pleasure to reintroduce you to provisional psychologist Shane DuPreez.

Shane has a keen interest in working in a supportive manner with people of all ages, and from diverse cultures, as well as couples. Specific interests include anxiety, depression, trauma and developmental disorders, such as autism spectrum disorder and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
Shane is especially passionate about working alongside non-human therapists, and leveraging the benefits of exposure to natural environments, in facilitating an holistic approach to a person’s well-being.

Shane is an integral part of the ALSLP team and we value his quiet compassion, deep insight and dedication to his clients. Shane is available from our Boort, Kerang and Swan Hill offices, or by Telehealth Monday to Thursday.

When difficult situations are approached with acceptance and a commitment to keep living according to our purpose, while holding our feelings lightly, we are able to bend and flex through the hard times.

This is resilience.

I hope you don’t mind me sharing this little video I took at West Beach SA recently. ❤️

After another challenging week, I am reflecting on what I am grateful for:

* Having a safe peaceful place to live
* The honour of holding space for those who need it
* The patience,compassion, and dedication of my amazing team as we all learn together and smooth out the bumpy bits
* The choice to take a breath and rest
* Coffee ☕️

What are you grateful for today?

Naomi 🙌

I am grateful for the love of my family Food in my belly Life in general and lastly the love in my heart 🙏🥰👍❤

Finally having a decent round of golf

You 🙌🏽🙏🏼

Letting things slide, and holding onto things that bother us may feel like it is easier, as it allows us to avoid conflict in the moment.

Alternatively, showing up and having difficult conversations is hard and brave. And it is a long term investment in better relationships with others as well as with ourselves.

Choosing courage over comfort is hard. And ultimately takes care of our inner peace.

This morning, I am very excited to introduce you to our newest Intern therapist, Olive.

Olive is a 9 week old Labrador with just a touch of golden retriever, and a gentle, calm, playful personality. She will be mentored closely by Gemma, who is already taking her role as supervisor very seriously, the lessons so far being “how to chill” and “do not chew thongs (or boots 😉)”.

For now Olive’s job is to be as cute as possible, and to accept endless pats and cuddles . She’s doing an awesome job of that already.

A huge shout out and thank you to Kirby, Bruce and Debbie Bott from mackir_kennels. She’s perfect 🙌

Welcome to the ALSLP family little Olive 🌟

How many psychologists does it take to build a flat pack???

So counting Naomi, U’Nita, Shane and Sophie…… 4.

plus….

90 minutes
2 power drills
Very dubious instructions which labelled the top the bottom and vice versa (that’s our excuse and we are sticking to it)
Supplied “selrf tapping” screws (no idea why there are 3 left over)
Communication skills
Emotion regulation skills
Cognitive flexibility
And a little laughter….

Now for the second one. Who wants to help? A PhD in flat pack assembly is definitely required. 🤣🤣

That provides a lot of laughter for me 😂

This gave me another little giggle tonight, and was too good not to repost 😂

But seriously…… therapists are just as human as anyone! And to do what we do, and be the best we can be to help others the way they deserve, we need to make sure our own wellbeing is taken care of. And checking in with our own therapists is often an important part.

I’m no good to anyone else if I don’t maintain my own mental health and wellbeing.

This is so true. Not a trained therapist, but a counsellor (just cert 4) for the last 12 years. People just call me and I counsel them and it's free... but when I need a counsellor, it's a whole different situation! And don't get me started on past sessions with less than quality therapists!!

Which one describes your mood today?

Whichever it is, it’s valid (just like both cups hold coffee), and sometimes it may be both at the same time.

The important thing is noticing, naming it, and being kind to yourself.
