Helping you move from survive to THRIVE

Attuned to your needs, using trauma-informed therapies,

I am here to guide you along your journey.

Anita Balogh
Registered Counsellor

Individual counselling in Peregian Springs
Sunshine Coast

Supporting you in a safe environment where you can reconnect with yourself and rebuild your relationships.

Are you overwhelmed by your feelings? Do you feel like a failure? You are not alone. Self-judgement, perfectionism or shaming are common behaviours we use to protect ourselves. 

If you want to calm the chaos or stop feeling stuck, you’re at the right place. Not only because seeking counselling is a decision that comes from taking responsibility and a sign of true strength. But also, because I use trauma-sensitive, bottom-up therapies that reach the heart and soul of your problem: be it childhood attachment wounds or other trauma.

If you are grieving or bereaved and coping with your loss alone is hard, I’m offering support and strategies to help live with your loss in a meaningful way.

Relationship Counselling

Suitable for couples, partners and parents who require help with ongoing, unresolved interpersonal conflicts and dealing with difficult or transitional times.

I can help you

Feel safe inside, accept and love yourself - engage with life fully.

Respecting your uniqueness

This is how I can help you

By selecting from a range of trauma-informed, expressive, body-mind focused therapies I can help you make sense of what has been going on inside you and why you are feeling insecure or disconnected. My overarching aim is for you to heal and move on with purpose. Use compassionate courage instead of the self-critical threats that you’ve been imposing on yourself for too long.

You’ll experience how this shifts past-rooted beliefs and behaviours and make way for more secure relationships with yourself and with the outside world.

I believe people need to be heard and accepted rather than fixed, saved or solved. We got hurt in relationships we heal in relationships too. I offer the first of the safe and healing relationships: the therapeutic one.

If you’re bereaved or suffered losses through major life changes I invite you to engage in my Resilient Grieving therapy.
