About Sagency WA

Before we begin I would like to say welcome and acknowledge the enormity of taking this first step in choosing safety and healing your relationships.

 

My name is Alison D’Vine and I am the establishing director of Sagency WA. I am a social worker and counselor specializing in supporting men who want to bring about behavior change regarding domestic violence, while also helping them heal from the trauma they may have experienced.

 

With a profound commitment to fostering empathy, understanding, and personal growth, I have created SagencyWA to provide a safe and non-judgmental space for men to embark on their journey towards transformation.

 

First and foremost, I believe that change is possible for everyone. SagencyWA has been created to help men navigate the complexities of domestic violence and address their challenges head-on. In our counselling and group work sessions, I alongside my team of highly experienced counsellor and facilitators have the ability hold space for men to explore their emotions, experiences, and beliefs surrounding violence, while also providing guidance in the healing process.

 

With understanding of the deep-seated layers of trauma and harm that often underlie domestic violence, counsellors at SagencyWa approach our work with perseverance and kindness. We are committed to helping men confront the shame, guilt, and confusion that may arise as they reflect on their past actions. Together, we will navigate these difficult emotions, fostering self-compassion and empowering personal growth.

 

Understanding that the journey to transformation is unique for each individual, SagencyWA draws on evidence-based therapeutic modalities combined with a person-centered approach. Through open and honest dialogue, we foster a trusting therapeutic relationship that allows men to explore their traumas, unpack their emotions, and develop strategies for change. Together, we can create a future where men are empowered to break the cycle of violence, nurture healthier relationships, and cultivate relationships founded on empathy, respect, and equality

Bachelor of Social Work, Post graduate certificate in Counselling, Certified Clinical Supervisor, Certified Protective Behaviors Practitioner, Masters in Counselling & Psychotherapy

I firmly believe that to create meaningful change, men must connect with their core values, examine existing belief systems, and create authentic connections between head and heart.


Guided by an empathetic approach, I help individuals unpack and make sense of their experiences, supporting them in discovering healthier patterns of behavior rooted in respect, equality, and non-violence.


I am dedicated to joining men on their path toward self-improvement, offering non- judgmental support, and celebrating their progress every step of the way. It is both an honor and a responsibility to walk alongside individuals striving to transform their lives and heal from the past.
