Feeling stressed, anxious or overwhelmed?

Struggle feeling good enough?

It’s possible to feel more healed and whole.

You deserve support

Reaching out for support and sharing your story is a vulnerable process.

When we take steps to take care of ourselves, our children, family and community can benefit from our healing.

My belief is that we are the experts in our own lives, and that moving through challenges works best when we feel safe, non-judged, and deeply listened to.

When we reach out for support, we want to meet with someone who "gets it" and will approach us as a whole person, not just a set of symptoms.

  • Feeling sad / depressed
  • Feeling stressed / overwhelmed
  • Having sleep issues
  • Feeling like you're not coping with day to day living
  • Struggling in your relationship with your partner/husband/wife
  • Trauma related symptoms such as, nightmares, flashbacks, panic attacks, angry outburst, self-harm, suicidal thoughts, addictions, loss of identity, low self worth, feeling disconnected from your body, loss of memory, dissociation etc.

Hi there, I'm Anne

Thanks for stopping by this little corner of the internet - Earth & Womb. 

This is where I share my counselling services and other offerings that support holistic health and healing. 

I'm passionate about how we integrate and recover from trauma and mental health challenges particularly with healing approaches that centre holism and the transpersonal. 

I wish to pay my respect to the Turrbal and Jagera people, the First Peoples with an ongoing connection to the land I call home in Meanjin (Brisbane). Always was, Always will be Aboriginal Land.
