The only person you are destined to become,

is the person you decide to be.

The word 'Invictus' is about recognising our strength in the face of

adversity - identifying and connecting with our unconquerable soul.

Invictus Counselling Service in Midland, Western Australia

Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT)

Language creates reality, rather than describes it. - Steve de Shazer

SFBT invites you to consider what you hope for, the positive difference you would like to see in your life, then walks alongside you to identify your preferred future.  In this way, rather than leaving a session with an expanded version of the problem, you can leave with hope to move towards the life you wanted. 

You will be invited to explore what you want, rather than what you do not want.  Instead of spending time considering how or why a problem occurred, something most people have spent much time reflecting on already, SFBT starts the journey towards a discussion on what you wanted in life rather than the problem. The solution to a problem is more likely to be found through discussing the life you would like to be living in more detail, leading towards the change you seek. Spending time discussing a hoped for preferred future can inspire motivation and confidence to bring this about in reality.

It's not about solving your problem, 

it's about inspiring your heart to move towards what is desired becoming reality.

- Elliott Connie

SFBT is about reminding you about your strength, a light in the darkness, that taps into your hope to empower you to discover a way forward in a challenging experience that is respectful to you and right for your life.

Invictus Counselling Service in Midland, Western Australia, empowers you to be yourself. Individual and couples counselling for adults and adolescents (over 15 years) is available for both short-term and ongoing counselling support.

Counselling is a place to reconnect with and strengthen yourself.  The way forward is not found in focusing on disappointment but on the benefits that can come from these experiences.

Our On-Site Counsellor

Our experienced on-site Registered Clinical Counsellor, Kerry Drummond began her training at Murdoch University (WA) in 2000, completing her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology with Honours. Later, she completed her Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling, followed by her Master’s in Counselling at Murdoch University in 2011. Kerry is a Level 4 Member of the Australian Counselling Association and a member of the ACA College of Clinical Counsellors. She continues her training by engaging in various professional development counselling workshops and courses throughout the year. 

Kerry trained with BRIEF International in 2019 by international experts in the SFBT field Elliott Connie and Adam Froerer (US) as well as Evan George and Chris Iveson (UK). Inspired by their teaching, Kerry has continued to engage in extensive training since then through the Solution Focused Universe by Elliott Connie, Adam Froerer and Cecil Walker, as well as with other Solution Focused experts Mark McKergow (UK), Jacqui von Cziffra-Bergs (South Africa) and Michael Durrant (Sydney, Australia).

Kerry is a member of the Australasian Solution Focused Association (ASFA) and is Co-coordinator of the SFBT Interest Group in Perth, Western Australia (WASFIG).  Any mental health practitioners working from an SFBT approach, or interested in learning more about working from this approach, are most welcome to join us.  Group meetings are held bi-monthly on Saturday mornings 9:30am-11:30am, currently by Zoom.  Please contact Kerry for more information.

Kerry has worked in a variety of organisations across Perth since 2008, and currently works part time for an Employee Assistance Program.

Kerry’s counselling approach has evolved over time and is now largely solution focused. This orientation is a respectful, empowering and hopeful approach. SFBT invites you to notice what you would like to have more of in your life, how you have already brought this about in the past, and what strengths, qualities or values you can continue to draw upon to make this part of your future as well. 

Our Fees

Counselling fees are $120 for an hour session of Individual or Couples Counselling.

Please note that as Invictus Counselling Service is a Private Counselling Support service Medicare rebates are unavailable.


Kerry was great and I've come a long way since working with her. It was useful having an experienced and objective opinion to remind me that I'm not crazy!! I really noticed the weeks when I didn't see her.

Kerry is great and always felt she understood my situation. Certainly would recommend and may want services again one day.

Kerry made me feel so at ease and that made me feel comfortable to talk my problems through with her, it helped me hugely.

Kerry helped me to work through the process of making an important decision that would affect the rest of my life. Two years on I am confident that I have made the best choice for me and I am at peace with, and stand firm in my decision. Kerry helped me see my self worth and that I need to do what is right for ME. I will always be grateful for the essential role Kerry played in helping me shape my future.

I consulted with Kerry from the Midvale office. I had never seen a Counsellor before and she made me feel very comfortable. She was very caring and understanding towards the problems I was experiencing. She helped me understand what was important to me, what I wanted to achieve and how to go about it in a positive way. She also encouraged me to see things from all perspectives which was a wonderful eye opener and a huge help. I gained so much from the sessions I had with Kerry and I would highly recommend her to others.
