It has been over 20 years of moments, movements and milestones. Countless individuals, couples, families and professionals who have entrusted Carrina with their stories, their fears, their hope and aspirations; many roads travelled, many wounds healed.
Within Bunbury Counselling Carrina is a Mental Health Social Worker and Therapist with a passion for human experiences; from perinatal wellbeing, parenting, child, adolescent and adult mental health, marital and relationship support.
Carrina is committed to the development of the industry supervising new and emerging counsellors, social workers and therapies, and guiding professionals through clinical supervision. She is a sought out for organisational review and quality improvement.
Growth is not possible without education which lead Carrina to opening Willow Training College. Willow acknowledges everyone’s capacity to both teach and learn, and provide the community college space for lifelong learning. It is through Willow Training College, that Carrina opens doors for educating the next generation of therapists and healers.
As a trained Doula and Childbirth Educator, Carrina’s commitment to supporting strong families expands across Australia with Beer and Bubs: Childbirth Education for Men at the Pub. Carrina maintains a strong stance about the importance of supporting all parents (mum’s, dad’s and carers) and extended family in a child’s wellbeing, which has also lead to her launch of Blended Family an online platform that is due to expand into national programs for non-nuclear families Australia wide.
On a personal note, Carrina is the very proud and active parent of seven children who are her greatest achievements and provide her life’s biggest learnings. She is a mum (of 4) and a step-mum (of 3) who she parents with her husband valuing and inspiring self-awareness, self-belief and a commitment to community.
Carrina’s professional and personal knowledge and experiences shape her work with individuals, couples, families and communities to bring about positive change that derived from the real life experiences, needs and desires of those she connects with.
