Meet the Team

Karthick Thangavelu

Student Counsellor

I am currently studying for a Master of Counselling at The University of Queensland and completed a Bachelor of Social Science (Hons) in Psychology. I am a Student Member of the Australian Counselling Association (ACA) and a Student Member of The Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia (PACFA).

I am dedicated to supporting individuals’ journey towards greater well-being and self-acceptance. I take a grounded, integrated approach, using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy, and Conversational Model in working with individuals. I deeply respect everyone’s story and journey, and I believe every individual has the inherent capacity to heal and grow.

Working together in sessions on how past experiences and learned behaviour come together to influence present-day thinking and the effect on future life goals and expectations is essential to moving ahead with a better life experience. I aim to employ whatever approach is best suited for the individual that is framed around specific needs and build a treatment plan in collaboration. I am deeply committed to creating a safe, compassionate, and non-judgmental space where my clients can explore their thoughts, feelings, and experiences. The hope is that the work in therapy will assist in relieving emotional pain and assist in integrating parts of psychological life and that this psychological resilience can be demonstrated in improved self-care, life choices and relationships. I am passionate about helping people connect with their authentic selves and live their lives to the fullest.
