My Approach to Helping

I am Patrycja (Patricia) Toczek, a qualified accredited Mental Health Social Worker with 15 years’ experience in the clinical mental health field. I am a professional member of the Australian Association of Social Workers and Australian Association of Family Therapists.

I have extensive clinical practice working in both public and private mental health settings with individuals, couples and families experiencing a variety of complex issues including impact of mental illness and trauma, co-existence of other co-morbidities including drug & alcohol, disability, psychosocial and broader systemic issues.

My work is characterized by a client-centered strength approach drawing on and adding to the individual’s resources through a trustful, reliable and authentic relationship focused on the individual's goals. I am passionate about empowering clients towards achieving their life potential by understanding and overcoming obstacles and unhelpful patterns they encounter.

I enjoy working with couples and families exploring some of the challenges they face, strengthening their coping skills, and developing more positive interactions.

In my work I utilize a range of therapeutic approaches and intervention strategies applicable in the family therapy setting. My approach is both eclectic and compassionate encompassing different therapeutic styles incl. ACT mindfulness, systemic and interpersonal, attachment and trauma-informed approaches incl. EMDR, havening and Internal Family Systems.

What makes my approach different is a holistic approach taking into consideration wider systemic factors, relationship networks and trauma-informed approach addressing feelings created often by debilitating impact of adverse life events and resulting in feelings of hopelessness and stagnation.

I offer flexible after hours’ appointments both F2F and on-line and am based in an easy to find central location.
