The GWHCC is excited to introduce our newest team member Gloria Lockyer!
Gloria has over 30 years’ worth of experience working in rural communities and is going to be providing general counselling and sexual assault counselling at the centre.
"I couldn’t think of working anywhere else in Kal than with Women. Working with women and empowering them to reach their full potential is a passion of mine. If our women are safe and well, then our children grow and flourish in our community. I have worked in community development in all areas for over 30 years in both private and public sectors. I am a narrative therapist at heart and use other evidence-based therapies such as CBT, DBT, Schema and EMDR in Counselling Practices, I am also in my final semester of Psychology Science.
Born in Port Hedland, I have lived the rural life for the most part, but today call Kalgoorlie home. I am a mother, grandmother and wife that loves baking bread, painting portraits and growing herbs. I love fishing, bush walks, exploring the reef and sitting in the sun in nature with a cup of tea.
I am a researcher currently completing a PhD in Health Science, looking at integrated models of care in the field of sexual assault, I am seeking more knowledge for the benefit of sharing it for better outcomes in our community. I am basically a tree hugger, loving earth care and sustainable practices in life. I believe Reuse, Recycle and Reduce is a great motto to live by. Taking an integrative approach to basically everything which values our people and planet, I believe even though is it the people that are important, we all need a healthy planet to nourish us in our lives. I believe you must “Be the change you want to see”.
