Louise Brunt

Get to know Louise

Louise offers support to:

Children (0-8 years)

Individuals (18 and over) 

Gentle and supportive, Louise combines warm interpersonal skills with Social Work knowledge and tools to support clients to achieve their goals and to be aspirational for themselves, their families and their future.

Louise has an academic background in Social Work, Humanities and Fine Arts. She has expertise working with trauma, PTSD, ASD, relationship breakdown, family violence, coercive control, family law, parenting concerns, disability, child development concerns and infant mental health.

As a Senior Social Worker, Louise works from a Strengths based and Trauma Informed framework incorporating Attachment and Values based theories into her practice. Louise draws from therapies and frameworks such as: 

  • Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction
  • Acceptance & Commitment Therapy
  • Solution-focused therapy
  • Positive Psychology
  • Systems Theory
  • Critical Social Work

Louise brings her own experience in Mindfulness, Meditation and Art to her practice which contributes to a warm and nurturing relationship with her clients.  Louise is inclusive; accepting of limitations, difference and challenges; and she values and models empathy, security and stability. Her calm and mindful approach supports choice, change, hope and grounds her clients.

Louise is also available for Social Work Supervision.

Please note: Louise offers support for individuals, as well as family related support for up to two people.

Call (03) 5222 1553 to book a two-person appointment with Louise. A two-person appointment can be for you and one other person – such as a partner, a parent, a child or any other significant person in your life.

If family specific support is required, the family member of concern does not necessarily need to be present. For example, two parents may seek help in understanding, responding to and supporting their child who would not attend the appointment. 

If you require ‘Family Therapy’ for three or more people, please call our Practice Manager on (03) 5222 1553 to discuss other options.
