Katrina Alilovic

BAppSc (Psych)(Hons) M Psych (Counselling)


Registered: Perth, Western Australia
13 Alvan St, Mount Lawley, Western Australia

Katrina is a Psychologist with twenty years experience working alongside individuals, couples, children and families in Australia and the UK. She undertook her studies at Curtin University (Perth, Western Australia) completing the Master of Psychology (Counselling) in 1995 and has since gained extensive counselling experience in a variety of settings including police services, workplace counselling, health, universities and not-for-profit organisations. Katrina has completed other training including conflict resolution, couples counselling, bereavement counselling, post-traumatic stress therapy, and domestic violence counselling. Katrina returned to Perth after 12 years living and working in Bristol and London, UK. The experience of moving and settling abroad has resulted in a special area of interest for Katrina and she is available to work with individuals, couples and families who are dealing with the changes and emotions that come with relocation and re-settlement.

Katrina has worked successfully with clients who have presented with issues as diverse as:

  • Post-traumatic stress
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Anxiety
  • Relocation issues
  • Homesickness
  • Bereavement
  • Living with grief through suicide
  • Grief and loss
  • Fertility issues
  • Living with serious and life-limiting illness
  • Dealing with change
  • Family and parenting concerns
  • Domestic violence
  • Childhood trauma
  • Abortion
  • Work-related conflicts
  • Illness or disability adjustment
  • Low self esteem
  • Adoption
  • Family of origin issues

Katrina appreciates that reaching out for the help you need is not always easy as negative thinking or feelings such as shame or embarrassment can get in the way. Deciding to seek help in spite of these hurdles can put you on the path to improved mental health and feeling better about yourself. Counselling is a special type of relationship and there is plenty of evidence available that demonstrates it works. Katrina is happy to discuss this with you. Sometimes professional counselling is the only type of support that is going to make the difference you want to experience.

Katrina works with focus and commitment. Her approach to practice is integrative and relational. This means she believes a strong connection between client and counsellor is an important ingredient in working towards successful outcomes and she is able to tailor the counselling approach to each person. She is influenced by several therapeutic models including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Gestalt therapy, psychodynamic and systemic theories.

A counselling relationship provides an opportunity to be more open and authentic. Katrina can help you facilitate this with her genuine, open and non-judgmental manner. It is her hope that through therapy clients not only deal with their immediate concerns but that the experience offers them ways to live more compassionately and creatively.

Katrina is experienced working both short term and longer term with clients. All counselling is reviewed at regular intervals to ensure a focus is maintained on your goals.

Katrina is a registered Psychologist with AHPRA*, and adheres to the Australian Psychological Society Code of Ethics, as adopted by AHPRA.

Katrina has written an article on Coping with Trauma.
