About Anne Serry

Counselling Services Northern Rivers, NSW

Anne Serry is a trauma specialist and psychotherapist, I focus on trauma recovery, whilst facilitating clients to see, believe and reach their true potential. 

My purpose is to help clients move from pain, struggle and suffering towards health and well-being. When clients reclaim their innate sense of authority over themselves, they begin to thrive. 

I prefer to work holistically, incorporating our minds (conscious awareness), our bodies (somatic practices) and the deeper parts of our brain (the subconscious mind). Everything within us is interconnected, so it makes sense to work with all our different parts to create a whole. 

Anne Serry work involves making sense of the past, healing the past, and then creating a foundation of self, based on awareness and actualisation.  In this way living a full and enriched life becomes a given not just a dream. It is by being truly present in the here and now, creating the healthy mindset, beliefs, and habits that we begin to reach our true potential.

I have the academic training and professional experience to help you make sense of your personal history, the capacity to support you during the counselling process and the ability to guide you gently through your work, all the while respectfully helping you navigate towards your own healing and health.  

Seeking help from an unfamiliar person via online counselling can be an uncomfortable or confronting experience, so I do my best to lessen any fears you may have about the counselling process through being open and approachable from the get-go.

I take enormous pride in the service I offer because I believe you deserve it. I am focused on tangible outcomes that create a sense of personal power. I work across the whole spectrum of life events and utilise the client’s life experience, hidden knowledge of self, and innate capacity for growth.  

A few words about Anne Serry: I arrived at this work later in life as it wasn’t until I experienced my own struggles in my late 30’s that I truly understood the profound change that can occur through the work of personal development and psychotherapy.

That difficult period in my life proved to be the catalyst for change and motivated me retrain as a Psychotherapist, specialising in trauma recovery. In the last ten years my passion has only grown as I continue to learn and deepen my practices to work with my clients.  

I hold a Bachelor of Arts/ Social Sciences from Monash University, a Vocational Graduate Certificate in Bereavement Counselling & Intervention from the Australian Centre for Grief and Bereavement and, a Graduate Diploma in Psychotherapy & Counselling from The Cairnmillar Institute. I am an experienced practitioner in The Richards Trauma Process and am BWRT Level 1 Certified. 

Anne Serry looks forward to being part of your self-discovery journey.
