Autism Specialist Counsellor
My Name is Catrina, I am 28 years old and I have been a counsellor for 3 years. Previous to my counselling career I worked as a security officer both doing events and mental health hospital work. I have 3 beautiful children whom are each on the spectrum. I enjoy many different activities and some of my hobbies (other than being a Mum) are cooking, horses and story writing/poetry. I myself have Autism, however I went undiagnosed until I was in my mid 20’s. During my childhood and teenage years I was ostracized, bullied and teased, just because I was different. I suffered anxiety, depression and an overall lack of self esteem for many years. So believe me when I say “I get it” I know how debilitating and cruel the world can be for our children and it is my sole purpose and goal in life to provide support and change for our young people so they are appreciated for who theyare as individuals and what they can accomplish in life.
I hold the following Qualifications:
* Diploma of Counselling
* Current ACA membership
* Blue Card
* First Aid Certificate
* Cert 3 in security operations
* A current security providers license
* Certificate in Understanding Autism
* Certificate in Introduction to child Psychology
* Certificate in Working together for children Certificate in children and violence
I look forward to meeting each of you and working towards a better tomorrow.
Office Manager & BARS Therapist
I have worked in the Health sector for over 16 Years in various roles and have a passion for helping people. I started my working life in a small rural town called Mungindi and an Assistant in Nursing (AIN). From here I went on to study a Diploma of Nursing. I transitioned to Administration work within Health where I have high level administration skills. I am excited to be getting back to a more client focused role. I also have a rural background having grown up on the land in Northern NSW where you could find me out riding horses in my younger years and later helping with tractor work during planting and harvest seasons.
I have two amazing children both on the Autism Spectrum, which gives me a very real understanding of the challenges and difficulties life can present to them. In my spare time I love watching TV Series and movies, crocheting, cooking, relaxing, and most importantly spending quality time with my family and friends.

HR and Marketing Manager
business was developed due to personal struggles, based on the fact, that no past
or current company could adequately provide productive support for my four children, we all have Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). My personal
experiences, along with other parents who have family members on the spectrum,
were encountering the same struggles in relation to lack of knowledgeable
flexible support that was accessible and affordable. I already had previous
business owner experience along with counselling experience and a training
background with Lifeline Australia, so I decided that the autism community was
desperate for change, innovation, knowledge, flexible deliveries and
affordability to ensure families were receiving the very best of care. I
realized that I could utilize my skills, knowledge and life experiences, and
apply it to this area that I am passionate about in order to reach this goal. I
attended and completed multiple training courses, including university
(obtaining a post graduate degree in autism studies) to ensure my clients were
receiving the highest possible care and professional support that I could
offer. I became a registered service provider for NDIS in 2017. Since then the
business has boomed to the point where we now have a dream team of employee’s (all of which are on the spectrum and/or have children on the
spectrum) that are continually training and improving while providing the
highest professional level of care and support for a wide diversity
of clients. In 2019 I was nominated for the Telstra woman’s small
business awards due to our innovative and unique approach to client care and
support, our specialization in; nonverbal level three autistic children,
sensory/dietary solutions for autistic individuals and community access and
inclusion. We are currently in the running for the Queensland state finals. We
currently have a client base of 370 individuals that are spread out over a
5ookm radius. We are
consistently creating, designing and implementing new programs for children
under 18 years, and training packages for personal development for other
companies that are delivered by us to help improve the consistency of autism
related deliveries of support across QLD. The business started out as an
unfamiliar household name and has fast become one of the leading professional
services for autism in Queensland. Our policies, procedures, frameworks and
codes are regularly reviewed to match the current market, while also
anticipating the future market.
