Karleigh is usually your first contact when you call us for counselling in Cranbourne East.

As a daughter, sister, student, worker, wife and mother, Prianka has experienced her own life struggles.

NB: Prianka is always seeking to grow and develop herself further and as such, after almost 10 years break from formal studies, she is currently completing the final phase to become a fully registered psychologist. Unfortunately, due to the requirements of AHPRA (Aust'n Health Practitioner Regulation Agency) we are unable to publish client testimonials for Prianka during this time and so have had to remove them from our website. Once Prianka has completed her final phase, we will be able to re-publish her client testimonials on our website - along with any new ones. Please rest assured - there are many!!
"I always wanted to be a counsellor, it's what I trained to do and I'm so grateful that I get to do this and be there for clients every day, and to Tracey-Leigh for trusting that I would be a great fit here. It's so nice having Tracey-Leigh there to guide us, she's just so naturally insightful, and just knows - she just knows! And she makes me feel really confident. I love all the clients and couples, of all ages, and supporting them through whatever obstacles or difficulties they are experiencing. Tracey-Leigh says I'm a natural, and I hope that's true but what I do know for sure is that I've really got to know myself better since working here and my skills and intuition are constantly growing and improving".

"Change begins with you. If you stop focusing on what is external to you - the things that lay outside of your power and control - and focus instead on changing your own internal world, you can experience true freedom. Learning to manifest peace and calm within yourself, regardless of whatever storms surround you, is priceless, for you and for those around you".
