Hello! I'm Marvel C. Adeyemi. I specialize in providing therapy to those who carry the burdens of childhood trauma or PTSD.  I am passionate about assisting individuals in their journey to recover from  trauma.Using a caring attachment-based and holistic framework at the core of my approach, particularly Eye Movement Dissensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR).

At a tender age of 8, my family went through a heart-breaking separation. This personal experience has given me a profound understanding of the challenges that come with family separation, childhood trauma, and the accompanying feelings of abandonment and depression.

It was during my own journey to recovery that I discovered the transformative power of counselling. This is why I'm driven by a deep passion to extend the same level of unwavering support and guidance to others in their healing process.

With over 15 years of experience in the human services industry, I've had the privilege of working with individuals and families from all walks of life. My deep-rooted passion for mental health led me to pursue a master's degree in Counselling and another in Social Works upon moving to Australia, now an Accreidted Mental Health Social Worker, (AMHSW).

My lived experience within a culturally diverse community and fluency in African languages provide me with a unique perspective on various issues. As a happily married woman and a mother of two adolescents, I've learned first-hand the importance of adapting to change, accepting new cultures, and building resilient families.

As a Christian, I'm more than happy to provide counselling from a faith-based approach. I also find joy in partnering with grassroots community organizations and facilitating group wellbeing sessions, where we focus on developing social and emotional skills from a multi-cultural perspective. Together, we'll create a hopeful and positive future.

I believe that healing, growth, and flourishing are possible for everyone. At Wholesome Counselling, you can expect cultural competence, and professional mental health support.
