Hello, my name is Fiona Paschke and I am currently completing a Master of Counselling here at CHC. I have a Bachelor of Education and extensive experience teaching children from prep to Year 7 as well as EAL (English as a Second language) teaching. Alongside teaching, I have worked with my husband in building a board game and jigsaw retail business. However, I have always had a great interest in psychology and a passion for journeying with people towards inner healing.
My favourite past times include evening walks, time in nature, reading and writing, listening to good podcasts about various topics, watching quiz shows and movies and of course, playing board games with family and friends. Most of all, I love relaxing at home with my husband, son and fluffy, goofy dog, Rockruff.
I like to take a collaborative approach in counselling and endeavour to explore the best directions and processes that align with my client’s individual issues and therapeutic goals. I believe the client/counsellor relationship is paramount to a successful healing process. Therefore, I seek to provide and build a genuine, warm, accepting and facilitative connection with clients. I also enjoy incorporating expressive arts therapy into the counselling process as it is a powerful yet gentle way to access the inner emotional world and gain greater self-awareness.
I hope to possibly see you soon,
Fiona Paschke (B.Ed., Cert IV TESOL, MCouns student)
