Hi, my name is Kym Murray and I am a registered counsellor with the Australian Counsellor's Association (Level 3). I established Krisalis Counselling and Psychotherapy so I could help others to feel better about themselves and the world they live in, supporting them in their goals for change. The name Krisalis originates from 'Chrysalis', the developmental stage of a butterfly, meaning transitional state or to transform. Krisalis also stands for someone who is full of love and is a great mediator who creates harmony and balance, which fits with my personal values. 


I am deeply passionate and highly committed to utilising my lived experience, education, and training, in helping you achieve your goals, increasing your skills or insight, or overcoming life's challenges. I respect your personal beliefs, values, culture and characteristics.
