Alyse is a psychotherapist and owner of Bowral Road Counselling and Psychotherapy Centre.
My old man is a regular listener to the podcast god bless him… He told me that he almost turned off straight away when we talked about psychotherapy because he thought it might be about some sort of new fandangled woo woo. Such is the stigma around the brain and mental health and the limited societal knowledge of mental health practitioners.
I’m training as a counselor and deeply enjoyed this conversation. I find peoples behavior and subsequently their mind fascinating. I got great insight from Alyse. She is a caring and engaging person who has compelling knowledge of the working of our minds.
I always suspected that mental health workers would be exposed to some of the greatest challenges of the human condition but I wasn’t aware of the extent to which Alyse and her peers are working with some of the greatest challenges of our existence. This was certainly an eye opening conversation and one I will certainly have to follow up on.
