Daniel’s client list is currently FULL and he is unable to take on any new clients.

Although no struggle is the same between one individual and another, he believes we share a common pain that is both deep and universal, despite the circumstances. His purpose is to support anyone who seeks strength and courage, not only to survive hurt and fear but also to thrive and find joy so that everyone can learn to grow in power, love and a sound mind.

Helen Birch


Counsellor

Bachelor of Applied Social Science – Counselling Major, Diploma of Christian Ministry, Member of Australian Counselling Assoc.

Your unique story, your life's journey with all its trials and joys, is an intensely personal space that deserves respect and validation. And while you have, for the most part, done well in navigating challenges, sometimes you get lost in the mess. It's when this happens, another person can help you see a different viewpoint or another strength you didn't even know you had. My aim in counselling, is to be that other person, who can walk with you, providing a listening ear and a supportive voice, shedding light on your path forward.

As a counsellor and Poly Vagal informed therapist, I am passionate about the importance of safety within yourself and within your world. My aim is to help you understand why your nervous system responds the way it does and what it is trying to express. I have a special interest in anxiety & panic attacks, life transitions, loss and self esteem issues.

When life circumstances become overwhelming, your nervous system responds by encouraging you to withdraw and hide in protection. This is normal. However it can cause you to remain isolated and lost. Can I encourage you to reach out and call me, and together we can find a way back.
