Welcome to Empatia

Welcome to you all, this is our blog. Empatía Counselling was formed by husband and wife team, Andrea Garin and Gary Bunker, two locals living in the Illawarra, though we're both imports - Gary came to Australia at age 18 and refused to leave, Andrea was born just after arriving from South America. We love all things latino, the spanish language and of course the food.

Empatía means empathy in Spanish, something we're both passionate about. Understanding what people are going through and having empathy for their needs is at the core of our approach.

"Be kind whenever it is possible. It is always possible." Dalai Lama
