Your Storyline is currently in a state of transition. As of January 2020 Felicity will have increased her hours as a mental health clinician at Sonder to 0.8 FTE, and will have scaled down her private practice. She will still offer sessional lecturing for the University of Adelaide in their Graduate Program in Counselling and Psychotherapy but will not be practicising at Nada Counselling in Hindmarsh anymore. And while a counselling and supervision service will still be available, it will be limited to a Saturday. For details about Felicity and her special interests please see about me or scroll down for more about how Your Storyline might benefit you through Felicity's expertise.
