Menique Perera

Therapeutic Recovery Counsellor & Coach

LLB, Grad Dip Legal Practice
Grad Cert Applied Law (Commercial Litigation)


I have 30 years lived experience in learning how to overcome the disabling effects of Anxiety & Depression and keep going with a life that is meaningful again. I am passionate about helping other women to do so too.

My life journey has included 25 years as a practising lawyer (both private practice and government). The skills of that past life as a ‘legal warrior’ have served me well and are used in my strengths and empowerment work. They served me well in researching and testing what works and what doesn’t for Anxiety & Depression to achieve results, as each individual case is different.

I have now re-trained with a University of SA Masters of Social Work (MSW) and am an accredited Australian Association of Social Workers (AASW) Social Worker. I take the high level AASW Code of Ethics and practice accreditation requirements for ethical + knowledge-based client practice as seriously as I did legal practice.

My aim is to work together with you to assess and identify your unique needs in your unique person-in-environment and to then work together with you to design and develop the therapy that is your personal fit.  I will then work with you in your journey in overcoming the challenges you are facing so that you can achieve empowerment to live the life that is meaningful to you.
