More about Renee

Hi! I’m Renee.

I am passionate about helping people have a better life.

I have worked in private practice in the Northern Illawarra area for over 11 years. Butterfly Courage is my therapy private practice, training, supervision and coaching business.

I have over 15 years experience working in therapy and the community.

I offer face-to-face and online counselling, coaching and mentoring services.

What programs and services are on offer

My private practice offers individual, couples and family therapy, as well as Clinical Supervision, Coaching, Training, Spiritual Guidance and Mentoring.

Counselling and psychotherapy look to the past and the present as to what makes you who you are and where you have come from. Working with you, I can also look at where you wish to go.

In coaching, we look at what could we learn from in history and try something new and different. See Caleb Storkey’s article on What Makes a Good Life Coach here.

On a regular basis, Butterfly Courage offers workshops, retreats and classes for anyone to attend.

Finally, you are not the same as anyone else. Working with me – we will look at your goals for your life or your work.

I provide support to my clients because I have been in your position too. Over the years, I have sought counselling – as is suggested by my professional association, PACFA. So I provide support because I care about you, your world and to assist you have a better, happier life.

Butterfly Courage is different in its service offerings…

The counselling, programs, training and therapeutic interventions provided by me consider your needs. It is not just one form of counselling that I provide, as everyone is different in the context of their family, the broader society or their unique culture.

I have continued to learn about the best practice methods of how best to help you.

None of us live in a vacuum and we need to continue to live in our beautiful planet, despite the human destruction of the planet in which we live.

It’s important for you to be able to bring all of yourself into therapy, whether it be talking about what’s important to you, what you’re struggling with, or just what you’d like to work on. It’s important that your therapy is about you – and that it’s a private, confidential and safe place.

The foundation training I have is in person-centred or client-centred therapy – which means in the therapy that is provided is all about you and attaining the best achievable outcomes for you. This is looking at you in the context of who you are – and what you’re personally grappling with.

I am happy to work with you, no matter what your life experience.

I am a registered clinical member and accredited Clinical Supervisor of PACFA –

and a member of ACSA.
