At Centred Self, we believe that providing care to our clients is not just about the therapist - it is about the supportive environment of the whole centre.

Hello! I'm Monica and I have spent the last decade helping people see the world around them in health care and ophthalmology. I have always been facinated by psychology, the mind and human relationships. So now I'm working towards a Masters of Arts in Counselling and Psychotherapy to help people see themselves in their world in a different way. I believe that therapy offers a place for us to connect with ourselves deeply, to explore the vast possibilites our lives and to empower us to claim our sovereignty.
Meeting you where you are, just as you are is where this journey begins and we will wrestle through the tough stuff, take detours and the road less taken while having a bit of fun along the way - together.
Aside from the day-to-day, I am a psychonaut and Krav Maga enthusiast who is always tinkering with something - right now it's micro, balcony, container farming. I wouldn't go a day without a high-five from my rescue pup, Olive.
My name is Denise and I work as the content marketing coordinator at Centred Self.
I love Digital Marketing. It allows me to tap into my analytical side while staying true to my creative nature. I also have a deep appreciation for those who work together with people in doing the work which allows them to discover who they really are underneath all the stress, trauma and anxieties of life.
There has never been a better time to create more awareness around mental health. The pandemic has been a very traumatic time on a global and individual scale so the work is that much more necessary. It is also important to note that a lot of work has already been done over the past few (even pre-pandemic) years to tackle the negative stigma around mental health and this means that we have the perfect opportunity to build on what has already been done while giving people the push to speak up and get help, or simply to understand what makes them tick.
Hi! My name is Una Grace and I am the content marketing intern here at centred self.
I have always loved using social media to be creative and I believe art is best with a purpose. I am glad to be able to use my knowledge and share it with others as well as learning so much more from the team to create content with the mindfulness of mental health.
Mental health is such an important topic that should be discussed more than what social media has portrayed.
I hope to help reach out to different demographics and use our platform as best we can to help enlighten some of the uncertainties about therapy.

More about me! I am an avid reader, podcast listener, yoga enthusiast, and is becoming obsessed with CrossFit.
Hello! I'm Maggie and I am 2.5 years old. I love being around everyone I meet - and I have never met a treat I don't love.
I really like cuddles and playing fetch. I am still very bouncy, but I am in training to be a therapy dog and love making people feel good.
I wanted to be the Centred Self mascot to make people smile, and also to help break the stigma against mental health. Hopefully with my goofy looks throughout this webpage allow you to feel welcomed to get the care you need.
