My name is Claire Gallaher, founder of Evoke Counselling, and I help people feel more comfortable and fulfilled in their mind, body, and life. I like to see people stretch their minds in a way that they can experience new possibilities. I have been working with clients for over 7 years to help shine a light of possibility to help them take back control over their own lives.
I combine my love for subconscious work with Acceptance and Commitment Therapy which is a practical therapy teaching us how to sit with uncomfortable feelings using mindfulness practices. In 2014 I trained with Dr Russ Harris one of the guru’s in ACT which has helped shape the way I work with clients and even managing my own personal life stresses.
Outside of my professional life I have two beautiful dogs (Ted and Milly) who get walked daily if Melbourne weather allows! I enjoy the sun and going on road trips with good music and good company.
My practice, Evoke Counselling, is based in Melbourne's South Eastern suburb of Wantirna South.
At Evoke Counselling I use a variety of therapies to assist you to achieve your goals. These include Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP), hypnotherapy, timeline therapy, and acceptance and commitment therapy. I can use these therapies to help you quit smoking, lose weight and optimise your life by tackling procrastination behaviours and self-sabotage.
Hypnotherapy enables us to access the subconscious mind which is where 90% of our information and memories are stored. This assists us in addressing the root cause of what's holding us back.
This approach looks at shifting/processing past events which are affecting the present moment and future actions. It enables you to live in the moment and move forward with your life. It gives you distance from troubling memories. Timeline therapy is a process undertaken in conjunction with hypnotherapy.
This approach looks at making the committed action which takes us towards our life goals and values. Acceptance is approached by allowing room for all emotions and experience’s in life through mindfulness and diffusion. Acceptance doesn’t mean allowing bad things to happen but enables us to acknowledge a situation so we can take committed action to move through and not get stuck in the effect of it.
