Struggling to cope with life?
Counselling has helped many people find relief from anxiety and depression…it can help you too
3 million Australians live with anxiety and depression.
Depression can happen to anyone at any time.
Whether it’s something you’ve struggled with your entire life, or only recently, depression can take a hold of your life and send you into a downward spiral that’s difficult to get out of.
When you feel depressed, getting up in the morning
and focusing on anything can be difficult;
you may lack energy and have difficulties in sleeping.
You may think…
“I am a failure.”
“Nothing good ever happens to me”
“I feel like a black cloud is hanging over me.”
“I am worthless.”
“I will never be able to do anything meaningful in my life.”
“I feel like there is a dark empty space inside of me.”
These negative emotions and thoughts can become so overwhelming that you are left feeling powerless, defeated and ashamed.
This can be very draining.
Depression and Anxiety Counselling can help you overcome:
Persistent worries and fears
Feelings of overwhelm
Irritability and frustration
Feeling sad and miserable
Loss of hope
You don’t have to struggle alone.
Counselling can help.
Research shows that counseling can help people who suffer with depression and anxiety.
Even if you feel discouraged right now there is a way out of the suffering.
You can feel good about your life again. You can feel excited to get up in the morning and feel more engaged and satisfied with your life.

Why choose me as your counsellor?
I understand how hard it can be when you are struggling. I’ve experienced my own challenges in life and know firsthand the benefits of therapy.
First, my migration to Australia as a young girl left me feeling lost, alone, unsecured and overwhelmed with grief for my home country. Later, in my 30’s I went through another period of unrest where I became a single mother and the sole parent for my 3 children. During this time I started professional counselling for myself and found creative therapies extremely helpful. I could get in touch with my emotions quicker than in Talk therapy and therefore I was able to make better decisions on how I want to live my life.
Counselling helped me to become a stronger person and inspired me to become a counsellor. I decided that I wanted to help others as I had been helped.
I have been practicing therapy as a trained Art Therapist and a Counsellor for the last 9 years. I have been in private practice since 2006, and work in the community and various organisations as an art therapist. I am a well-informed counsellor and empathic listener. I treat all people with respect and acceptance, and provide a safe and welcoming space for you to be heard.
Counselling can help. You do not have to struggle on your own.
This is what some of the participants said about their work with me:
“Every time I finish a session with Dalit I look with amazement at the work I produce! I see things a lot clearer and I can see how far I progressed in my journey”. Ms A.
“Describing the benefits of art therapy is like trying to describe how you feel when you hear your favourite song. It is deeply personal and enriching and can only be felt by experiencing it for yourself. It has been one of the most enjoyable activities I have experienced. Ms K.
“I couldn’t believe what a big shift I felt after the art therapy session I had with Dalit. My awareness of how I am in the world changed. I felt the most important thing in my life at this moment is to be true to my self.
I am very grateful for this awareness!” Mrs S.
