How I Work

In a crisis or an emergency situation, call “000” or Lifeline on 13 11 14.

Anita Balogh - Internal Family Systems Practitioner (Level 2)

I invite you to include every part of your experience in your awareness in a judgment-free way. You will see yourself more clearly and nuanced, and be able to offer yourself compassion for everything you have gone through to arrive to this moment.

Imagine the lasting transformation you can do in your life by understanding your multifaceted mind and making peace with all the aspects that make you who you are. My trauma counselling with IFS will help you embrace all of yourself.


I conduct my counselling sessions in a safe and supportive environment in Peregian Springs, on the Sunshine Coast.
Online counselling sessions are also available.

No referral needed

I don't need a referral from your GP. This means that in my trauma counselling practice, I am free to offer a combination of therapies that will support you the best, not just the ones that are covered by rebates.
I am a provider for individuals insured by ARHG member funds.
NDIS clients are welcome if plan- or self-managed. Please mention when inquiring.

Main Modalities

Internal Family Systems Therapy
SAFE-T® - Somatic Attachment Focused Expressive Therapies
Compassion Focused Therapy

I use a bottom-up approach to therapy because I strongly believe nothing works better to address emotional pain, disconnection, and compulsive behavioural cycles. There is relational trauma or attachment injuries in the background of most of my clients’ issues, even if they aren’t aware of it when we first meet. This is where the Internal Family Systems model can help heal the most.

My body-mind centred, attachment focused trauma-counselling attends these underlying issues. With IFS therapy it offers insights to have more clarity about yourself and allow compassion for everything you have gone through to arrive at this moment.

The length of the counselling process and the frequency of your sessions depend on your unique needs and circumstances, and you determine them. It’s your process, and no one knows you better than you.

Swan Counselling Fees

An individual counselling session lasts about 60 minutes (or more, I will guide your landing when it is just right), and your investment of $100 may be paid at the time of the session in cash or afterwards by EFT. Relationship counselling sessions are 75 minutes long, your investment in your relationship is $150.

Our friendly cat, Toffee, may be close by, so if you are allergic to cats or don’t like them, please let me know so I can lock her away.

The length of the counselling process and the frequency of your sessions will depend on your unique needs. I trust after our first meeting you’ll know exactly what you need.
