Facilitating healing, self-empowerment and personal freedom 

through honouring your body’s innate wisdom 

and inspiring transformation that reflects your true nature 

Tricia Ang | BA Psych, MSocSci Counselling, MAT | PACFA, EMDRAA

Hello, my name is Tricia  and I’m a qualified clinical counsellor, art therapist and body-oriented psychotherapist who is dedicated to supporting individuals to connect to their true nature and experience a deep sense of well-being and enjoy fulfilling lives.


Through my personal and professional explorations, I have gained a profound appreciation of the interconnected nature of our mental, emotional, physical and energetic bodies; and how we are impacted by our relationships with one another and our environment.


As such, I am committed to working holistically to support your body’s native intelligence to come into balance and harmony, to facilitate healing, self-empowerment and transformation that deepens your experience of innate aliveness, freedom and joy.

My intention is to provide a safe therapeutic container for you to explore and deepen your connection with different aspects of yourself, towards the end result of a fuller experience of your wholeness, and of living a life that you truly desire.


Experience & Specialisation

With over eleven years of clinical experience counselling children, adolescents and adults in paediatric, educational, mental health and trauma recovery settings; and over twenty years of professional and personal development experience, my skill set has expanded over time and now includes creative/expressive, body-oriented/somatic and sound/frequency therapies.


The modalities I use are informed by leading-edge research and understanding of trauma and early attachment disruptions, as well as age-old practices based on ancient wisdom that are gaining increasing recognition from emerging scientific explanations. These include humanistic therapies, creative arts therapies, play therapy, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing), Havening Technique, TRE (Tension & Trauma Release Exercises), and Sound & Frequency Therapy.


I specialise in assisting individuals to heal from trauma (PTSD, Complex PTSD, physical/ sexual/ emotional/ developmental trauma, early attachment disruptions, shocking/terrifying events), overwhelm/burnout, emotional dysregulation, anxiety, depression, relational issues, disordered eating, self-esteem issues, identity issues, life transitions, and grief and loss.


I offer therapy sessions for children, adolescents and adults online and in-person in Coffs Harbour, NSW, Australia. I would love the opportunity and privilege to work with you or your child.
