Indigenous Counsellor

B.A | GradDipCouns | MCouns

Kylie Smith is a Yamatji woman raised in Noongar Country and is our new Aboriginal counsellor and NDIS Psychosocial Support Worker/Recovery Coach. Her clinical approach ensures person-centred care, and her preferred modality is Narrative Exposure Therapy.She has worked across various community contexts over the last 12 years and has recently graduated from Murdoch University with a Master of Counselling. Recognising the gaps that exist in services for Aboriginal people, particularly in the counselling/therapy space, she has shifted her focus (in the last couple of years) to working as a counsellor with clients individually and through group work.

Her journey in the field began in diverse community settings, where she honed her skills in connecting with people from different walks of life. Rooted in a genuine passion for community empowerment, she has worked collaboratively with diverse groups, fostering resilience and providing support through the transformative power of counseling. In her role as a counselor, she works both individually and within group settings, recognizing the importance of community support in the healing process. Through culturally informed counseling, she seeks to empower individuals to navigate challenges, heal from trauma, and strengthen their emotional resilience. Her approach emphasizes collaboration and the incorporation of indigenous healing practices, fostering a holistic and empowering experience for her clients.
