Sydney Online Counselling and Coaching

Calm Easy Confidence

ONLINE COUNSELLING

Counselling can provide help and support with personal and relationship issues that may be preventing you from experiencing enjoyment and fulfilment in your life.

Explore the issues in a safe and supportive environment and implement strategies for change.

How Online Counselling Can Help

Counselling provides support and direction when you’re trying to manage difficult emotions and situations.

Talking with a trained counsellor assures you of a confidential conversation with someone who is objective and has your best interests at heart.

Further, counselling can help you gain clarity and understanding to manage situations and ease distress.

Online counselling is an effective and convenient way of engaging with the counselling process.

COUPLES COUNSELLING ONLINE

Couples counselling services focus on your particular relationship issues and help you to understand the patterns of interaction between you.

By creating new patterns and ways of communicating, you can experience greater emotional connection with your partner.

How Couples Counselling Can Help

Couples counselling services aim to help you improve the quality of your relationship and deepen the emotional connection you have with your partner.

Learn different ways of communicating with and responding to your partner. Instead of having the same ‘hot topics’ recurring again and again.

It is satisfying and validating to have your partner listen to you.

Many couples engage in destructive patterns that lead to arguments and misunderstandings.

ONLINE COACHING

Life coaching services help you to clarify your direction in life and form meaningful goals underpinned by your life values.

Life coaching allows you to take control of your life, increase your life satisfaction and learn to manage any barriers to change.

How Online Coaching Can Help

Coaching provides assistance with a particular issue or decision you want to explore.

A coaching conversation can unlock some new perspectives and directions.

As a result, you will have a more flexible range of choices and reactions to the same issue. Furthermore, you may develop new skills to bring about change and personal growth.

Life coaching online is an effective and convenient way to engage with the change process.

Clinical Supervision

People come to consulting for solutions about workplace dynamics between individuals or within teams, for workshops on an area of counselling or coaching, for music specific consulting in schools, or for mentoring of counsellors starting out in the profession. We focus on the outcomes you want to achieve.

Clinical supervision supports the important work counsellors do with clients.

All counsellors participate in ongoing professional supervision to ensure the quality of their practice and further learning. Counselling supervision allows you to reflect on your professional and personal experience.

Consequently, it is important to have ongoing supervision from a more experienced practitioner to guide and support you. For instance, Linda is a PACFA Accredited Supervisor and Clinical Member with 16 years counselling experience.

TESTIMONIALS

I first saw Linda about six months after my partner died; at a time when it felt like I had been blown apart. I did not know how to put myself back together again.

She provided a safe space to explore things that I didn't even know were issues when we started. She listened, asked questions, reflected what I said in new ways and challenged my thinking, suggested strategies to deal with where I was at, and laughed with me at the end.

The 18 month journey with Linda was intense, and completely worth it. I recommend her unreservedly.

Nicola D

Linda provides a fantastic service.

An excellent, highly experienced counsellor. She is able to offer empathy and insight with intelligence and purpose.

I don't believe I've come away from one of her sessions without learning something about myself.

Perhaps even more importantly, she is able to dispense practical advice which can alter your life - positively - going forward.

Nick K

Linda's life coaching service is honestly life changing.

She has an amazing way of challenging your road blocks and shining light on your blind spots in order to help you continue to pave your own path.

You instantly feel better after seeing her. The power of her guided reframing changes the world as you see it.

I would highly recommend her services, as you will surely not be disappointed.
