Helping you move from survive to THRIVE

Attuned to your needs, using trauma-informed therapies,

I am here to guide you along your healing 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 break free of stuck-ness, 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.

Counselling Treatments


Loss and Grief

You don’t need to go through grief and bereavement unsupported. I’ll help you reconnect with your strengths, live mindfully with your loss and be compassionately present for yourself.


Individual Therapy

I'll help you reach to the root of your problems, heal from the past, so you can create empowered choices to bring change and purpose into your life.


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

Do you want to feel safe, accept and respect yourself and engage with life?

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. The overarching aim is for you to heal by the compassionate understanding of your attachment injuries.

This can lead to changing past-rooted beliefs and behaviours to make way for more secure relationships with your own self and the outside world.

You will experience how compassion in a safe, non-judgemental space can transform your fears into courage and your feelings of helplessness into self-supporting action.

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