Dr Stephanie Azri offers consultations, professional supervision, clinical counselling, coaching and mentoring and group sessions.
Additionally, she offers corporate training and public speaking/presentations.
Some may define counselling as professional guidance in personal and social matters. Stephanie approaches counselling and coaching as a relationship between people on a shared journey, with the counsellor present to act as a mediator. Clients may seek counselling for many reasons and Stephanie provides lot of support to clients regardless of their reason or life experiences. This can include, but is not limited too; women’s health issues, youth and family, couples and relationships, sexual health, grief and loss and mental health. She is specifically trained in CBT, DBT, interpersonal therapy, grief and loss, and is undertaking sex therapy training.
Stephanie also provides coaching and mentoring for those who don’t feel they ‘need’ counselling, but would like to have the benefits of debriefing with a professional on a regular basis. Mentorship is popular amongst leaders and members of the community who in their day-to-day roles need to present a facade of assurance within and high degree of confidence and want to work on their normal moments of doubt, uncertainty and emotional vulnerabilities.
Coaching and mentoring may give clients a confidential, non-judgmental space to talk through ‘stuff’ so that they can make sense of what needs to be made sense of and can go about their daily life with confidence!
Professional supervision is a positive process that offers clinicians, counsellors and other allied health and community workers, the opportunity to reflect on their practice. It is a required and mandatory process for workers to review, evaluate, critically analyse and report on their work, progress, issues and achievements. Stephanie offers professional supervision in a way that has been said to be supportive, eclectic, professional, warm and funny at times. As a well recognised expert in her field, it is her privilege to provide supervision to emerging practitioners in the field.
Stephanie has presented at many conferences and facilitated many in-services training. Her areas of expertise are women’s health, supporting women and families through and after a poor prenatal diagnosis, burn out and self care in the helping professions as well as stress management, moral distress in the workplace and motivational strategies.
