Specialist Grief Counsellor
Certified EMDR Practitioner
Master-qualified Relationship Therapist
Accredited Mental Health Social Worker
I’m Wendy Liu – hello.
I created The Session as a dedicated space for us to have therapeutic conversations about life, loss and grief.
I am a Specialist Grief Counsellor, Master-qualified Relationship Therapist and a Medicare-approved Accredited Mental Health Social Worker.
Before The Session, I worked as a Forensic Counsellor for seven years supporting families following unexplained deaths, fatal accidents, child deaths, suicides and homicides reported to the Coroner.
Previous to this, I worked in Palliative Care and Oncology, as well as hospitals and health services in Australia, New Zealand and the UK.
Being this close to loss and trauma each day has really honed my skills in supporting others during the toughest of times.
This means I have the experience, training, and practical wisdom to help if you're affected by grief, trauma, relationship issues, or if someone you know is a missing person.
In this way, I bring over 20 years of professional experience to our counselling sessions, as well as hefty doses of empathy, curiosity and authenticity.
You can read more about my work in Any Ordinary Day, by Leigh Sales, The Space Between the Stars by Indira Naidoo or listen to my interview on Conversations with ABC Radio.
Outside of The Session, I'm reading but promptly forgetting books, I'm baking and delivering sourdough, and I'm definitely swimming and cooking - just not at the same time.
See you in The Session.
