Autism Specialist Counsellor


Catrina



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

Company history


The 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.
