Helping you move from survive to THRIVE

Trauma-informed, somatic, expressive therapies and IFS

Gain self-acceptance and trust your Self

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-informed, bottom-up therapies that reach the heart and soul of your problem: be it childhood attachment injuries 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.

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 might have been imposing on yourself for too long.

One of the most effective psychotherapy I use in counselling is Internal Family Systems therapy (IFS). Helping you develop trust between parts of your inner world and your Self. We witness the pain and struggle of your dismissed young selves and all the protective parts that try to manage your life. If you want to hear about this transformative therapy before you come to see me in my counselling in Peregian Springs, I invite you to make a discovery call now.

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.

Swan Counselling Clients


“Anita is a compassionate person and intensely interested in the well being and recovery of others.”

“Thank you so much Anita. I have thoroughly enjoyed the sessions with you (despite the tears!) and really felt value from the experience. I really like your approach and methods.”

“I can be on my own with my feelings better than before, I use to bottle it all up, so it’s great to be able to try and deal with this all so I do not end u where I was previously.”

“What I really wanted to say was thank you, as you indeed did catch me. You did also listen in a way that made me feel very much seen and heard, as on your face I also saw my pain reflected and it had a huge effect on me. I could never express how much and how important it was to me. I felt very touched too when I read your note as you can see many sides to me and give me so much hope, which has been in short supply lately. Thank you Anita”
