Keira-Marie Allen

Pronouns: she/her

Psychologist and Director

Available Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays

Keira enjoys working with adult clients, both individually and in couples. She started her professional life as a Paramedic, but found herself drawn strongly to the mental health presentations and therefore, decided to continue studying to become a Psychologist.

Keira has a particular interest in working with diverse people – those who are neurodivergent (including Autistic clients, AuDHDers, and ADHDers), those who are part of the LGBTQIA+ community, are gifted, and/or those who are in/interested in alternate relationship structures. She also has experience, interest, and training in working with people who have experienced trauma.

In her clinical work, Keira is passionate about guiding and supporting clients to uncover what may be driving unhelpful behaviours, learn strategies to approach situations differently and facilitate personal growth through treatment. In her work, she develops and implements tailored treatment plans to assist individuals who are experiencing a range of mental health issues. She strongly believes that clients should be encouraged to take an active role in their treatment, recovery, and ongoing management of their health.

Keira’s approach to working with clients has been described as collaborative, flexible, warm and genuine.

When Keira is not working, she is spending time with her family (including her husband, two daughters, 2 rescue cats and 2 mini lop rabbits), cooking or getting outside in her vege garden. Keira likes discovering new hobbies to dive into deeply (or rediscovering old ones) – and is currently learning how to play the keyboard piano and playing Stardew Valley.

Rob Marchbank

Pronouns: he/him

Counsellor & DBT Trainer

Available Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays

Rob completed his Master of Counselling at the University of Canberra and is registered with the Australian Counselling Association. Rob came to psychotherapy via earlier work in allied health, as a massage therapist. Over time, Rob found himself drawn to the emotional and behavioural issues raised by his clients – and changed from a focus on working with bodies to working with
minds. Rob has a particular interest in working with trauma, anxiety, depression, and neurodiverse clients. He also has a professional focus on men’s mental health, an area he believes is underserviced nationally.

As a counsellor Rob practises primarily from a Client Centred approach. He firmly believes in the agency, autonomy and self-actualising potential of his clients – that they are the experts on their own lives. Rob believes in a collaborative and empathetic approach, and in clients taking an active role in their own therapy. His approach is warm, open and non-judgemental.

Rob is also a DBT skills trainer and co facilitates weekly DBT group therapy sessions. He firmly believes in the power of DBT skills training to change lives.

When he’s not in session, Rob spends his time training and competing in Brazilian Jujitsu and Freestyle Wrestling. He enjoys Zazen meditation, practising breath work and having a nice cup of tea on the lounge with his cats.
