Satori Place of Awakening is the manifested reality of a vision that has been held by its founder and director, Cristina Giai-Coletti, for many, many years.


Based in Edge Hill, Cairns, our private practice provides a place of serenity and expert psychological support.  It is a place that holds the potential for healing and it is a place of information-sharing.  


Our approach is compassionate and person-centered.  We offer you psychological intervention and support to meet your individual needs as effectively as possible.  This means that we work with you to understand you and your individual needs, strengths and potentials as best as we can, and to collaboratively create a treatment plan that resonates with you and your needs. 


The values that guide Satori Place of Awakening are Passion, Vision, Enjoyment, Peace, Sensitivity and Excellence. 




We provide psychological intervention and support to adults who are experiencing mental health challenges, as well as parenting support.  We also provide psychological presentations, seminars and workshops to corporates and other professionals.  



The main therapeutic approaches used at Satori Place of Awakening are Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT).  Mindfulness is incorporated into these approaches as needed. 



Your sessions will take place in a beautiful, calm and peaceful environment in the quiet suburb of Edge Hill, just a short stroll away from the botanical gardens.  You can expect to be received in a courteous manner by our friendly reception staff, and receive high-level and professional psychological support from experienced psychologists who are passionate about the work they do.
