Sometimes things feel like they are too hard. Sometimes we may feel like we are 'stuck' because of a challenging situation or from a past pattern of behaviour that doesn't seem to let us go. Sometimes our thoughts seem to go around and around and take control of our actions. Sometimes, we just don't know which direction we need to head in, or want to head in, and why. These transitions in life need some time to process. And sometimes it feels like nobody understands us and we just need someone to talk to and to find a bit of grounding and presence.
Psychologist, Australian Association of Psychologists - Member
I am a Registered Psychologist and Gestalt therapist working with couples and individuals helping them overcome difficulties to lead more satisfying lives and fulfilling relationships. For over a 15 years I have provided relationship counselling and couples therapy to people who have struggled to create loving and satisfying relationships. I am passionate about supporting my clients as they become aware of their destructive patterns and find new, more satisfying ways of relating.
I’m Amanda, an experienced and registered counsellor delivering therapy online and at my private garden practice on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. I specialise in women's anxiety and offer change-making therapy to stop those worrying thoughts. I help women like you navigate relationships and life transitions, find freedom from anxiety and self-doubt, and uncover the confidence I know is there (but you might not, yet).
