One-on-one counselling for pregnancy, birth, postnatal and early parenting journeys.

Fully funded and Medicare-rebated counselling for women who need support from preconception up until the youngest child is 5 years of age. Funding available under the Connect to Wellbeing Program, Victims Services and Medicare Benefits Scheme.

My service is mobile and is offered in the Nambucca and Bellinger Valleys and can take place in a woman’s home, private counselling rooms, an appropriate service, in a local park, or somewhere comfortable and suitable to the women’s needs.

The journey I walk with women supports their holistic wellness throughout pregnancy, birthing and becoming/ being a mum and allows women to find their own power to move through issues as they arise or are identified.

Sessions can cover a wide variety of issues and topics such as:​

  • Physical mechanics of birthing
  • Emotional journey of birthing
  • Spiritual journey of birthing
  • Birth plans
  • Pre natal depression
  • Post natal depression
  • Fears around pregnancy, birthing, postnatal care
