For brave, reflective adults wanting to explore the impact of their own childhood on who they are now as an adult or parent.

For parents wanting to build on the strategies and connection they have with their children.

For children and youth needing a space to ignite their bravery and explore their fears.

The joy of finding therapy that feels natural

You don't want to be treated like you're unwell, and you certainly don't want to be considered 'broken', in need of fixing. If you're a parent, you don't want this for your child either.

Perhaps instead you might like to:

  • Shed some tears and talk about a deceased human or pet without the concern of upsetting someone.

  • Process your grief from a loss that was not a death. 

  • Process a tragic accident, event or health situation.

  • Find ways to feel less overwhelmed and stressed with life or parenting.

  • Learn how to increase respectful relationships between you and your child.

  • Explore the messages you were given as a child and let go of the ones no longer serving you well.

  • Learn how to enjoy a cuppa or say 'no' without feeling guilty.

  • Tame your anxiety and find your inner warrior or help your child find theirs.

  • Feel more comfortable and peaceful with your appearance and who you are; or support your child to feel this peace about themselves.

  • Explore what might be stopping you from being the type of parent you really want to be.

Thanks for stopping by

I'm Joanne (Jo), a deep-thinking clinical counsellor with lots of curiosity and a love of noticing the little things in life. I literally will stop and smell the roses when I'm out and about.

If you're like me, you enjoy moving, feeling the warmth of the sun or a gentle breeze on your face. You're possibly even open to being outdoors hearing the hypnotic sounds of a summer shower and that magic smell of freshness when the shower passes. For me, outside is where my wellbeing gets recharged and if you're still here reading, maybe this is your thing too.

"Ah, no it's not Jo" I hear you say. "I'm still reading because I want some support for my child." Fair point. with one click of the button here, you can find out more about me and how you and I can do that together.

There is no ideal way to raise children.
There is no ideal way to be a parent.
There is no ideal way to be a person.
