Bachelor of Social Work
Accredited Mental Health Social Worker
Member of the Australian Association of Social Workers
Hi, my name is Una. I am a Brisbane based Social Worker and mental health practitioner with 25 years of experience. I am a social worker in private practice and provide counselling with Medicare rebates, professional clinical supervision and university guest lecturing.
I am the sole practitioner at Una Window Counselling and Consulting and offer a reliable, warm and personalised experience. This private practice offers specialised counselling services to adults. I also provide professional supervision services to social workers and social work students. Sessions can be in person at my Annerley office or via phone or video.
My aim in my work with you is to offer a non-judgemental, secure and comfortable setting where your unique experience will be valued.
Here's a little more about my professional background - after obtaining my Bachelor of Social Work from the University of Queensland in 1994, I went on to explore social work practice opportunities in different health settings in Brisbane, around Australia and the world. These include psychiatric in-patient treatment, mental health crisis response in Canberra, paediatrics in Alice Springs and medical hospital social work in London. Since returning to Brisbane in 2001, I went on to specialise in public community mental health service provision to adults with serious and complex mental health needs, including Bi Polar Affective Disorder, Trauma, Schizophrenia, Post Natal Depression and Psychosis and those who experience self-harm and suicidal urges. I continue to provide trauma-informed therapeutic approaches in my private practice.
