ann burnsMy name is Ann.

If you are struggling, then I am here to help you find the right way forward in your life.

I’m a counsellor specialising in holistic psychotherapy, working in the Southern Highlands of NSW.

For many years I worked as a small business accountant: and I know what you’re thinking — why does an accountant become a counsellor?

You see, in my time as an accountant I witnessed the struggles of my clients.

I empathised deeply with these people as they went through the good times and the bad, and it made me think: how could I help my clients improve their lives, and not just their businesses?

The answer was really simple.

After twenty-five years in accounting, I turned to counselling.

In three years I completed a PACFA-accredited course in Holistic Counselling and Psychotherapy, and am an Associate Member of CAPACAR (Counselling and Psychotherapy Association Canberra and Region).

Now, I use all my experience and training for the benefit of my clients, whatever their needs.


How I can help you

You’ll find that my holistic approach to counselling means that I focus not only on your pressing issues — they are the symptoms.

To find the cause of your challenges, I focus overall on your mind, body and spirit.

Whatever your need, I focus on who you are as a person, and how to live your life well, completely and without fear, accepting yourself completely.

You see, counselling is about discovering the right path for the individual person: there are no one-size-fits-all answers. You are unique, and so is your journey.


Who I work with

Some people think counselling is only for people dealing with depression.

On the contrary: midlife direction changes, big life decisions, right down to the small things that perhaps you tell yourself aren’t important — they are important and valid reasons to seek counselling.

Depression, stress, anxiety, grief, bullying and self-harm are just some of the issues I may be able to assist you with.

It’s never too late to make a change, and to start living your life the way you want.

If you are seeking someone who will really listen, and offer a different, holistic perspective on your life, then contact me any time.
