Our Practitioners

Natalie Allen


Counsellor

Natalie is currently completely her final three subjects of a Bachelor of Psychological Science (Counselling & Interpersonal Skills), and will continue with further study.

Natalie has over 14yrs experience in supporting and facilitating change for children, young people and their families, who are enduring and adapting to significant life challenges and hurdles. Some of these challenges include supporting and facilitating the management of escalating and challenging behaviours, self-soothing and emotional regulation, anxiety, control battles, defiance, hypervigilance, hyperactivity, tantrums, facilitating the building of healthy identities, compliance, age appropriate boundaries, structured routines and the implementation and management of inclusive disciplinary strategies.

Natalie’s combination of studies in psychology,
personal experience and work with children and young people, has highlighted how invaluable support and understanding are, especially when a solution is not clear or available. Experience has taught Natalie to think outside the square in finding possible solutions to difficult situations, or simply a way to endure the challenges. It has taught her to assess each situation as different and unique; to not judge; and it enables her to view
life situations, circumstances, and challenges through multiple lenses.  It has been Natalie’s experience that understanding what lies beneath a challenge, along with a relational knowledge of a child, young person and their family enables her to come up with and facilitate strategies to support and facilitate change.

Natalie has been married for 18 years and has 3 children (17 yrs, 18 yrs & 21yrs).

Ali Friedrich


Counsellor - Social Worker

Hi, my name is Ali Friedrich. I am an accredited Mental Health Social Worker with over 18yrs experience working with families, couples and individuals, who have struggled with life challenges.

I have extensive experience in counselling children who struggle with a wide range of social and emotional issues, as well as working closely with parents, relatives and Carers who are supporting young children. These issues include the impact of Domestic Violence, Attachment disruptions, Grief and loss, Anxiety issues and disruptive behaviours.

I migrated to Australia from India in 1972 with my parents, and have experienced a range of challenges growing up. I have an understanding of a range of life challenges including: looking and feeling different from other children and struggling at school; in my early 20's becoming a wife and mother and all the challenges that it brings, and now a grandmother.

My passion is to support parents who have young children because the early years of a child's life contain the building blocks to their adult life.
