Counselling Central Coast
For couples and individuals
Learn how to deal with personal issues and relationship difficulties, thereby learning or re-learning how to be best friends with your partner and better friends with yourself
Counselling Central Coast. You can do this by starting a counselling relationship with me, Wendy. When you do, you are taking the brave step of admitting that you need help. It is not a sign of weakness, but of strength to say “Hey, I’m stuck. Can you help me, please?”.
Create this private space to allow me to help you understand how to deal with those difficulties that prevent you from enjoying yourself, your life or your partner. Make healthier choices that lead to a more connected and fulfilling life and closer relationships.

How Couple Counselling with me will help you
Maybe you are a couple struggling to adjust to the changes after a new baby and the loss of intimate space– or you realise work or children have pushed aside your relationship with your partner. Sometimes deciding not to have children, or not being able to, triggers deeper conflicts. You might be at the other end, with ageing parents that stress the relationship or with teenagers fighting your boundaries. Maybe one of you had an affair, or have an addiction that’s overwhelming the relationship. For other couples, it’s simply realising that you have ‘fallen out of love’.
Couple counselling is a space for you as a couple to explore your relationship. This allows each of you to get the support you need. This enables you to express the issues and conflicts that are stopping you feeling close, safe, and satisfied in your relationship.
How Individual Counselling with me will help you
Whatever the problem or stresses, I am able to listen carefully and enter into your perspective. Whether it’s a sudden crisis or ongoing emotional struggles, you will be supported and calmed, until you can see what you can do differently. Working with me, you can learn how to change the frustration, loneliness and isolation to confidence and an improved perspective, knowing what you need to do next to deal with what’s happening.
COVID-19 Update: Due to the need to keep safe and practice social distancing, I have been offering counselling online or over the telephone. This is proving very successful with positive feedback. Now that the rules are relaxing I am beginning face to face counselling again so please feel welcome to come in person if that suits you better.
“Wendy has been counselling me through my husband’s stage 4 cancer diagnosis and adult sons mental health treatment. Through our phone consultations Wendy has given me the confidence to make clear and rational decisions and to create boundaries that I have needed to continue to function normally during this challenging and uncertain time. I initially was unsure about counselling via a phone call but now feel that this is just as effective as face to face counselling. I am very grateful for her support.” Michelle (Warners Bay)
