My name is Sandra Russet-Silk and I am an Analytical Psychotherapist and I have practiced for 18 years treating people for Trauma, Post-traumatic stress disorder, Torture and trauma Childhood Sexual abuse Borderline Personality Disorder Depression and anxiety Domestic violence issues. I have 30 years experience working with people with disability and the aged, 16 of those years were as an Advocate for people with disability. I have also worked as a Consultant for NGO’s who have sought my expertise with people who are disabled and who are struggling with personal and ethical issues.
My passion is working with people in the psychotherapeutic space and I have been a qualified and practicing psychotherapist for 18 years. I am a published author of a book Crying in Silenceǳ. This book highlights the failure of the systems to treat a young man suffering from PTSD and prescription drug addiction. In 2006 I wrote a workshop on Professional Boundaries for people who work with people with disability and community services. I have presented the workshop to community NGO’s in NSW, ACT, and WA. The workshop can be tailored to any agency or service providing personal care or support to people in general. I received the Centenary Medal in 2003 from the Commonwealth Government for my contribution to the community as an Advocate.
Two years of my working career I worked with Asylum Seekers of different ethnicity in Canberra and in the far North Kimberley at Curtin Immigration Detention Centre.
