History of Watersedge

Colleen’s passion to be with people in their suffering and brokenness while offering healing and assistance to reach their full potential was the initial impetus for the establishment of Watersedgecounselling. It began in 2003 when Colleen commenced a small private practice from her home in Belmont, Geelong where she would see individuals and conduct women’s retreats. The inspiration for the name Watersedge came from the Barwon River, located in close proximity and a constant source of calm and tranquillity

Five years later in 2009, Watersedgecounselling relocated to 230 LaTrobe Tce, Geelong West where Colleen’s practice expanded to see individuals, couples and families. Colleen built up her practice here until Watersedgecounselling relocated to Waterfront House in the Geelong CBD, in November 2012. Initially in a smaller office, Watersedgecounselling quickly outgrew the venue and 12 months later, moved to a larger premise next door to the original one.

In March 2014, Watersedgecounselling expanded further to welcome Duncan Morris who provides counselling, mentoring and supervision.

To accommodate this further growth and provide clients with a broader service, Watersedgecounselling  relocated in November 2015 to a premise in Newtown. Just a 5 minute walk from the Barwon River, this  beautifully located, fully renovated period home with its peaceful cottage garden, at 117-119 Aphrasia Street is the perfect setting for clients seeking a calm, tranquil and private space to seek counselling support. As a husband and wife team, Colleen and Duncan are fully qualified and competent helping professionals,  passionate about your growth and reaching your potential.

In January 2016 Rachel Morris,  holding a Degree in Social Work and  having worked for 4 months in Katherine (Northern Territory) with Indigenous Youth, joined our team at Watersedgecounselling. Rachel is a Youth Specialist, providing counselling, mentoring, encouragement and support to young people of all ages.
