What is the difference between counselling and holistic counselling?

While some forms of counselling are listening to the presenting issues in your life, Holistic Counselling looks at the whole person and all of the elements that make you, you. These include emotional, social, mental, physical, financial, environmental, intellectual, cultural, spiritual, sexual and psychological. We look at you, how you fit into the world and how we can best support and strengthen you.

Together we can acknowledge what is impacting your life right now, further understand your current needs and using holistic techniques, work together on improving, accepting and surrendering to your life.

I’m nervous. What can I expect from our first session?

Nervousness and fear are perfectly normal feelings. Please be assured you are taking the first step towards changing your current situation.

Your first session will mostly comprise of listening, in order to support you fully and to provide the most suitable goals and tools I need to know your story.

How are you qualified to help me?

I have a Degree in Communications, I hold Diplomas in Remedial Massage and Holistic Counselling. I am a Certified Infant Massage Instructor, Kids’ Yoga Teacher and a Reiki Master. I am currently studying towards my Master of Counselling.

I work full time, it’s tricky for me to find time for an appointment. What are your hours and how do I book?

I know what it is like to juggle work and family schedules.  I work from the Health Hub at Redland City Boxing in Cleveland on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Saturdays are in high demand! I am also available after hours via Zoom or Skype. Please book your appointment here.

What kind of areas do you specialise in?

Most people come to me for problems related to stress, work, relationships or family issues. In addition, I have lived experience with anxiety, burn out, relationship breakdown and repair, addiction, change and parenting. I especially enjoy working in the area of youth and teen anxiety.

In my life I have been assisted by many wonderful healers and bodyworkers, If I can’t help you, I can help you find someone who can.

What happens if I can’t make my appointment?

As I have a waiting list, it helps me to rearrange things if I have at least 2 days notice. I understand that sometimes children are sick, work commitments can change and life happens. For no shows and last minute cancellations my blanket policy is $50 added to your next bill. This is considerate as some companies can charge up to 75% of your appointment fee or request payment prior to bookings. If you are able, please give me at least 24 hours notice to see if I can offer the time to someone else.
