Stress Management Counselling Surry Hills

Is Stress Making Life Feel Impossible?

Understand the root cause of your stress and gain practical tools to help you manage it with calmness and confidence.

Stress shows up in our lives in different ways. It might be work pressure, a difficult life event, or a family issue. But whatever the cause, being stressed has a huge impact on your life.

You don’t sleep properly. You feel irritable all the time. You’re snapping at the people you love. And you’re probably giving yourself a hard time over all of it.

Living like that is exhausting, and it can lead to depression and anxiety if you don’t get on top of it early.

I help clients understand the root cause of their stress and arm them with a stress management toolkit to help them cope and move forward.

Free Yourself From the Stress Cycle

When everything feels overwhelming it’s tempting to try quick fixes, such as alcohol or scrolling social media. Doing that might help you feel good in the moment, but over time it can create its own problems.

In most cases, you can’t just walk away from the situation or challenge that’s causing you to feel stressed. And if you worry that talking about it might make you look or feel weak, you keep it locked up and it only gets worse.

I offer a judgement-free environment, so you can feel safe to open up and talk about the problem.

I show you how to deal with and reduce your stress in a healthy way, so you can choose how you act and react, and how you live your life.

Practical, No-nonsense Stress Therapy

Everyone’s experience of stress is different. We’ve all learned different ways to handle challenges and manage how we respond to difficult situations.

When you work with me it’s like having a coach in your corner, someone who has your back. I will help you learn about yourself and I will challenge you, when need be, so you can break through the toughest obstacles.

I use an integrative therapy approach that is respectful and empathic in a safe, judgement-free environment.

Counselling That Fits in With Your Schedule

When you’ve got a lot on your plate, finding out-of-hours appointments can add to the stress, so I offer as many out-of-business hours sessions as I can. I am available from 7am to 9pm, Monday to Friday, and from 9am to 1pm Saturdays. The after-hours sessions do fill quickly.

The standard fee for a 50-minute session is $150. I accept credit card and debit card, or you may also pay with cash or via EFT if you prefer. I offer a 10% discount for clients who book a five-session package.

You don’t need a referral to make an appointment and can contact me directly by phone, email or booking an appointment through the website.

If you’re not ready to book but would like a bit more information or to get a sense of who I am, I also offer free 10-minute consultations over the phone.

Your First Appointment

At our first appointment, we will talk about:

  • Your concerns and current presenting issues
  • The effect of these concerns on your current experience of life and your relationships
  • Your expectations and goals for therapy

It's also an opportunity for you to find out more about how I work and any other questions you might have.
