Anita Balogh

Anita works with clients who wish to better understand the impact of trauma on their lives and relationships. She is deeply committed to helping people shift old and often counterproductive patterns of behaviours which prevent them from finding fulfilment in life and joy in relationships.

Anita has years of experience supporting people (adolescents and adults) by bringing a strength-based, trauma-sensitive, bottom-up approach to the treatment of depression, anxiety, addiction, mood disorders, developmental PTSD, parental issues, grief and bereavement.

She believes that her holistic, bottom-up approach combined with cutting-edge therapies (which go beyond traditional talking) help her clients transform their sense of self and become calmer, more trusting and connected. Both as an individual and a practitioner, she advocates the multiple, well-researched benefits of mindfulness and meditation for improving our wellbeing. Her special interests are in neuroscience, Interpersonal Neurobiology, and current models of somatic therapies.

As part of her professional development, Anita continuously participates in training programs. Her mission is to share insights with a wider audience, of the research on trauma and how it impacts people. As a member of the Australian Counselling Association, she is also subject to regular professional supervision.

Her typical Sunshine Coast daily routine starts early with exercise, yoga or a beach walk. She enjoys cooking, hiking and is fascinated by birds. Being a mother and a wife, she brings a breadth of life experience into her counselling. Also by having been able to live and work in Europe, run her own business, write a book and teach before moving to Peregian Springs over 14 years ago.

Most of all, she is compassionate, and cares deeply for her clients.
