Soul Somatic
by Petrina Hennessy


I am a compassionate and highly skilled Counsellor, Art Therapist and Healer with extensive experience. I am an active member of the Australian Counselling Association, and the Mental Health Academy. I have worked in a diverse range of settings including the public, education, and private sectors. I specialise in providing effective therapeutic support to adolescents and adults.

I provide a nonjudgmental and respectful environment for my clients to explore their concerns. I am dedicated to helping people define their personal needs, and reach their counselling goals. I like to support my clients to overcome their challenges and build a strong, secure platform for transformation and personal development. Counselling allows people the opportunity to develop profound insight into who they are, why they behave in certain ways, and most importantly the potential pathways to change.

I have spent 30 years studying and experiencing human individuality which has taken me through interesting and challenging terrain both internally and externally.

My life journey has been humbling.. It has allowed me to walk in many shoes and gifted me with the ability to navigate through unseen worlds of darkness, confusion and pain with the highest intention to bring light, understanding and healing.
