Kate Reimer

Kate is a clinically accredited counsellor with more than seven years’ experience in community mental-health support and private, clinic and school-based counselling. Throughout this time she has had the privilege of supporting people from diverse backgrounds and life experiences.

Kate founded Doongalla Counselling in 2020 with the aim of providing a supportive environment to help people find healing and the tools they need to thrive. Although she works with people experiencing a range of issues, she has a particular interest in trauma recovery.

While Kate’s clinical qualifications and counselling training provide the necessary skills for her to collaboratively work with people toward their goals, it is her own personal experience of trauma and recovery which has given her the heart, compassion and understanding which is so essential to this work. These qualities can’t be found in a textbook, and many people reflect on the sense of safety that Kate brings to the counselling space.
