About Cogni academy

Hi, my name is Natalie, and I have devoted my life to helping 1000’s of people just like you!

Cogni Academy Counselling and Supervision was founded in 2015 because the women I served as a Beauty Therapist kept pouring their hearts out to me with deeper wounds ready for healing that I was not fully equipped to handle.

Today I help women & their families find transformation and empowerment from mental health and relationship breakdown symptoms.

Would you like to speak to the Cogni Academy team?

Natalie is an invaluable professional. She has challenged my core beliefs, allowing me to grieve well and engage with conflict more resourcefully. I have no hesitation recommending Natalie’s services. She is true to her word and provides compassionate and compelling evidence-based counselling. I am incredibly grateful for her work.

Each session, I walk away with so much to think about and put into practice. This week I have a lot to reflect on and I look forward to being more aware of my boundaries and being in control of these. Thank you!

Whilst I felt in our group session I did most talking out of our family Natalie did great to bring it all back to our family and our goals. Especially for my son. I think he will find this a safe space to talk more as we continue as it helped him realize he was actually more upset than he thought

I really appreciate your communicative approach and that you took time to identify my goals in the first session and that you have a method to review in 6 weeks. I’m looking forward to learning practical skills in setting boundaries. I found having a physical copy of my self care blueprint very helpful for reviewing and journaling. I am now far more aware of what holistic self care is and it’s prompted me to reflect on what I can do to improve different areas.
