Esme Dark

Esme has over 10 years of experience supporting children, adolescents and adults to move through challenges in their lives. Her training in clinical psychology combined with her interest in somatic work and eastern philosophies allows her to work with the whole person, blending both clinical and experiential approaches. She believes this holistic approach deeply supports clients to attain lasting change and growth in their lives.

A collaborative approach considering the client’s unique needs is a key part of Esme’s therapeutic work.  She considers it an essential part of her role to assist clients to utilise their own resilience to move through distress.

Esme has experience in supporting clients to work through issues such as depression, anxiety, addiction, trauma, grief and family challenges. Esme and Sophie Harvey (also based at Natural Therapeutics) offer joint family counselling sessions.

Esme draws on a variety of therapeutic approaches including mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, solution focused therapy, somatic approaches and narrative psychology.
