Hello - My name is Kallena Kucers. I am an Accredited Mental Health Social Worker, counsellor and psychotherapist and have worked for many years in varied health, mental health and palliative care settings with people looking for support for issues such as anxiety, depression, trauma, dissociation, self-harm, suicidality, adjusting to living with life-threatening and life-limiting disease and illness, grief and loss.
I work with people experiencing increased stress from the social, political and health challenges in our society and have long had a particular interest in understanding and working with people whose lives have been impacted by the effects of childhood trauma and abuse. My particular interest and experience is in working with people living with Dissociative Identity Disorder and I recognise the importance of acknowledging neurodiversity. I am familiar with issues faced by members of our LGBTQI communities and especially welcome members of our trans communities.
I have over 15 years' experience as a social worker, counsellor and therapist and also in providing clinical supervision, am a registered Worksafe provider, have experience working with victims of crime and am a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional Level II: Complex Trauma (CCTP II).
If you are experiencing crisis right now, please see the Resources page for supports immediately available.
