Astrid – a beautiful young woman taken from this life far too soon.
16/11/76 – 11/12/19
We will miss our dear friend and colleague Astrid, who passed away on December 11th 2019. Not only was Astrid an amazing and vibrant person whose energy was contagious, she was a therapist and clinical psychologist with deep compassion, interest and curiosity.
Astrid worked with us until shortly after her cancer diagnosis at the end of 2016. We so enjoyed working with Astrid and she was a valued member of our team and a real asset to us at the Good Mood Clinic. She was a very popular therapist during her time with us. She always showed heart-felt warmth and care for her clients and had genuine interest and emotional investment in people doing well.
Astrid loved her work and she was fabulous at what she did. She helped so many clients regain their sense of self and empowered them to make important and life changing decisions. Astrid was deeply empathic and compassionate. She cared for the people she worked with and always thought very considerately and thoroughly on how best to help her clients.
Astrid leaves an important legacy and she will be remembered with great love and fondness.
On a personal note, I knew Astrid very well, both personally and professionally. I first met Astrid in 2005 while working in a hospital in Sydney and got to know her well gradually over the years. We went on to share some important life experiences together and she was a dear and much loved friend of mine. Astrid worked unbelievably hard to get well over the course of her three-year illness. Her courage, commitment and discipline shown over the course of her illness often astounded me and she is nothing less than a complete inspiration to me.
I feel privileged and blessed for having known Astrid and having her in my life as both a colleague and dear friend. I am a better person for having known her.
Astrid, you are loved, you are deeply missed and you will always be remembered.
