At Centred Self, we believe that you getting the care you need is not just on your 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.
Hello! I'm Maggie and I am 1.5 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 you feel welcomed to get the care you need.
