Amanda McDonnell

Counsellor / Cert IV (Fashion Design Tech) Dip Community Services (Case Management) Grad Dip (Coun Cu)

Working with empathy on the edges of client’s awareness to help them self-actualise new adaptive behaviours to replace their old maladaptive ones, such as alcohol and drug use and co-dependence, Amanda is warm, engaging and passionate about using group dynamics for client growth and healing. Her ongoing commitment to clinical development has seen Amanda undertake courses in process group work and an interest in Buddhist philosophy and practice which aligns to the WHP program elements of mindfulness and self-care.
