About Teresa

Just to tell you a little bit about myself and how I became a counsellor.

Teresa Kitt - Perth Counselling

In 1989, I emigrated to Australia and continued to nurse.  However, as much as I enjoyed nursing and all aspects of health education, I felt increasingly drawn towards people’s psychological problems. As a consequence I completed my Bachelor of Counselling at Notre Dame University in Fremantle and later trained to work with couples and families. As I became involved in the world of psychotherapy and counselling, I was able to clearly see how the quality of people’s relationships can affect their mental health and vice versa and the impact of this on their daily lives and interactions. As both a counsellor and a mental health nurse I have extensive experiece working with clients struggling with all kinds of issues such as addiction, depression, anxiety, separation, infidelity and the consequences of these on their relationships. I believe that meaningful relationships are central to living a contented and meaningful life.

Ongoing Education

As a professional counsellor, it is a requirement to keep updated with continuous education and professional development. I regularly attend workshops and seminars to keep updated on any new developments that may enhance my skills and knowledge so that I can deliver to you the best that I can offer.

I’ve had the privilege of participating in workshops with Murico Aldofi, a world Master in couple and family therapy where I’ve gained invaluable skills and knowledge in couple and family therapy.
