Counselling & Family Therapy

Dear Valued Clients, We regrettably advise that all future appointments with Amylia Bell will be via telehealth only until further notice. This decision is in compliance with "Workers in a healthcare setting (COVID-19 Vaccination Requirements) Direction (No. 2)" - Posted 16 December, 2022. At this stage the order is valid until 26 March, 2022, with the possibility of further extension. Updates will be provided as they become available.

My name is Amylia, and I am the owner and counsellor at Choices Therapy. I am registered with the Australian Counselling Association and have many years of clinical experience working with adolescents, adults, couples, and families.

I am passionate about my work and see counselling as an opportunity for constructive conversation; where therapist and client collaborate to establish and reinforce the client’s empowerment and self-awareness. Through my experience, I have found that this approach can put even the most nervous client at ease by establishing a culture of warmth, acceptance, and understanding within a professional setting. By helping clients to develop emotional awareness, healthy boundaries, and effective interpersonal skills I feel confident that my clients can achieve positive and lasting changes that will facilitate growth and resilience for years to come.

It is my aim to create a warm, welcoming, and safe space for clients to explore the hurts of the past, the challenges of the present, and their hopes for the future. The decision to use an integrated therapeutic approach means that I am able to customise each session to provide my clients with the most rewarding therapeutic experience possible.

Modalities commonly applied include: Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, and Systemic Family Therapy.
