Individual Counselling

Are you at a loss where to turn for help?

Are you confused with direction in your life?

Maybe you are finding that you tend to attract the same kind of person and ultimately your relationships don’t last?

Or perhaps you would like to learn how to be more assertive in your work environment as well as your relationships?

Are you wrestling with anger issues, over your relationship and you Wish that you and your partner could communicate better?

Maybe your relationship has ended, and you don’t feel like you will ever meet anyone else?

You don’t have to suffer alone. I can help you to connect to yourself and your relationships.

With over seventeen  years experience in counselling clients I will work with you in a safe and caring environment.

I will support and assist you to achieve your goals and find solutions to your problems.

I will give you tools to empower yourself so that you are able to face and resolve issues as they arise in the future.

As an educator as well as a counsellor I can teach you how to be assertive in order to be heard and get you needs met in relationships.

Individual Counselling can help with relationships issues if your partner does not feel ready to come to therapy. However it is usually more productive if both parties can attend then I get to hear both sides of the story and the issues that need to be resolved.

I offer a safe space for you to discuss your worries and problems and work with you to generate options and find the solution you choose to be the best for you in your unique circumstances.

I also offer tools to clients to help empower then to be able to solve their problems in the future. These can be in the form of books and articles or podcasts to watch and sometimes referrals to other therapists that may help you.

I work holistically as the mind and the body work together and affect each other. I am trained in Bach Flower remedies as well as aromatherapy and use these only if the clients wishes.

As a trained food and nutrition coach I also look at peoples’ diets and sleep patterns.


An individual session is $160 for sixty minutes.

Sessions are located in my private and confidential rooms, either in Bangalow or Ballina.

“Thanks Helen for your guidance and direction during a really rough time. Your personal manner, listening skills and most importantly your sage advice proved invaluable n getting my life and my relationship with my wife and kids back on track.

You provided a wonderful environment of safety and freedom that rebuilt a man struggling for answers. With your help I learnt that neither the question or the answers were important. Rather, it was how I reacted or didn’t that smoothed the road ahead.

The true test of your brilliant counselling skills is that five months later life is full of love, new opportunities and fresh adventures. I can’t thank you enough.”

” The first time I saw Helen I was full of sadness and resentment towards myself and my partner. I was quite hesitant  opening  up to a complete stranger. But Helen made me feel warm and very comfortable. Helen’s kind words hepled me see a different kind of perspective. She helped me see strength in my relationship. Plus with her witty sesnse of humour I was really looking forward to my every session.

If I could adopt Helen as my second mum I would in a heart beat. For anyone having self doubt please put your trust in Helen she really is amazing.



“As a client of Helen I found her to be a very caring and compassionate person. Her ability and reasoning to deal with issues surpassed my expectations. Helen’s vast experience and professional approach enables her to identify problems and work to find solutions while remaining very kind and concerned.”

“Helen has been able to guide me through some of the hardest times I have ever experienced. Her calm nature amd understanding made my experience easy breezy. I’ve grown immensely and have Helen to thank for that”


” I just want to say that although you have your profession as a counsellor and your accreditation on the wall,  I saw you as a compassionate, genuine and wise person that cared. So thanks again and I will no doubt be in touch for a tune up in the near future”


“I found Helen to be very relatable, easy to talk to and caring. She helped navigate me through a difficult time. I highly recommend Helen to anyone looking for voice of reason.”
