Compared to Queensland and the rest of Australia, the Wide Bay region (including Bundaberg, North Burnett and the Fraser Coast) consistently reports poor health outcomes along with high levels of addiction, family and domestic violence, sexual abuse and welfare dependency.
In other words – many people around here have been doing it tough for a long time.
I can probably help with that.
How can I help?
I’ve been studying with some of the world’s best practitioners and offering holistic trauma release counselling for 12 years. For a long time I only worked online. Now I’m also offering holistic counselling locally, based in Bundaberg.
We could look at:
Stress. Anxiety. Depression. Abuse. Addiction. Complex trauma. Illness. Accidents and injury. Physical pain. Weight loss. Procrastination. Self-esteem. Divorce. Death of a partner or loved one. Losing your job. Business failure. Bankruptcy. Family conflict. Bullying. Relationship issues.
… and anything else that’s bothering you.
How it works.
We have a chat. You talk, while I listen for what’s stuck. It could be something stuck “in” that you’d like to let “out”, like anxiety. Or something you’d like to welcome “in” that seems stuck “out there”, like a better job.
We speak some simple phrases out loud. Sometimes you cry or laugh a bit. You just notice and allow whatever wants to move.
You commit to six sessions (choose weekly, fortnightly or monthly). Then we review. You decide if you want more.
What I do.
By noticing what’s missing or in your way as you talk about your life, I can suggest which blocks to release for maximum impact.
Sometimes I’ll offer you my perspective on what you’re describing. You get to decide if my observations are useful.
We keep it simple, using short processes that move old pain quickly and easily. It’s a conversation, with me suggesting some things that seem ready to shift.
What I don’t.
You don’t have to relive your traumatic childhood memories. I’m not going to psychoanalyse or tell you what to do. And you don’t have to see me every week for years.
I don’t have a script or a plan for your sessions. We work with whatever you want to that day. I’m not trying to help you get anywhere that I’ve decided is right for you. You’re in charge.
If you tell me an old story, I will gently encourage you to see it from a different perspective. Looking at old pain in a new way allows it to move and disappear.
What does it cost?
Until 1 January 2022, I’m offering introductory local pricing.
First session – $120 / $100 concession
Next 5 sessions – $100 / $80 concession
I ask you to commit to 6 sessions, because that means we can get great results that last. You decide whether you come weekly, fortnightly or monthly.
After that, you decide if you want more.
Why am I doing this?
I was born in Bundaberg. My father was born in Childers. He’s descended from the first white men who grew sugar cane in the Isis Scrub. Until I was 3 years old, my family lived on a farm at Eureka. My grandparents (on both sides) lived at Woodgate all through my childhood.
Even though I didn’t live locally for 45 years, red dirt and sugar cane is the landscape that feels like home. Family brought me back to live here in 2018. I love it.
Although I work with clients across the world, I want to support my local community too. The tools I use can help heal the kind of intergenerational trauma many residents of this area know too well (plus they’re also pretty effective for handling stressful everyday life situations).
What’s the next step?
I prefer to talk to potential new clients before we work together. We can explore what you want to focus on. Plus we can confirm that I really am the right person to support you, right now. I’d love to meet you on a free exploratory call.
