About Nest Psychotherapy & Counselling

We would like to extend a warm welcome to you here at Nest Psychotherapy & Counselling. You may have visited this website at a time in your life when you are experiencing unrest or challenges and we want you to know that we are committed to offering you a safe and compassionate place to work through whatever is arising for you. A figurative nest, that will be a place for you to feel supported and nurtured allowing space for sustainable and organic change or development.

Tracy Proud founded Nest Psychotherapy & Counselling in 2016 in the Southern Highlands. Nest is now a multi disciplinary practice  with Nest Therapy Rooms located in Camden and a new collaborative space with Navigate Therapy & Consulting in Mittagong in 2021.  We continue to serve the Southern Highlands with a beautiful space within the Regal Professional Centre at Mittagong. Tracy continues to guide and lead our team of mental health practitioners who work with both individuals and couples. Equality and integrity are cornerstones of our practice values and we welcome everyone whilst being respectful and inclusive of your diversity and your individual experience and needs.

What happens at therapy

We know that reaching out can be difficult when you’re experiencing challenges in your life, so we do everything we can to make it easy in a safe and compassionate environment. While there is no set formula to therapy, there are some common areas that you can expect to navigate when you engage in counselling or psychotherapy:

  1. Exploration – exploring things that challenge you, your emotional connections, how you feel about the things you’re experiencing, and how your beliefs and attitudes came to be
  2. Awareness – giving space for you to truly feel and experience your internal world. This may highlight things that have been previously pushed away or  marginalised
  3. Integrating – working together on strategies to integrate the things you discover about yourself, your attitudes and feelings, into your life.

I seek to build a compassionate, respectful therapeutic relationship with clients so that we can work together to explore your experiences, discover meaning in the struggle and find what you require, bringing about sustainable change, growth or acceptance.
