How are you?
Say goodbye to
Parent, employee, partner, colleague..
you have so much you want to give and so much you want to be.
It feels impossible to do it all and to do it well.
I can help. Let's talk.
I'm a Mental Health Social Worker with more than 20 years' experience - as a working mother and as a mental health expert. Empowering women to feel in control and confident is my mission.
I went back to work when my kids were a few months old to help the family financially. I felt rushed all the time and so busy but sometimes so lonely as well.
Friends who worked didn't have children; friends from mother's group didn't work. And the working friends with children were too busy to catch up.
I rarely felt that I was on top of things and I really gave myself a hard time about that. Nothing ever seemed "done".
Then I began working as a counsellor (psychotherapist, mental health social worker - the names mean the same thing) and the women with babies or school aged children who were returning to work and hardly keeping their heads above water were the people that I really felt a connection with.
I became more and more passionate about helping women see and believe how they are SO MUCH MORE than their messy house or messy hairdo. I get so fired up and excited when I talk with women about how much they do and how truly awesome they are !!
I love the look in a mum's eyes when she puts down some of the guilt and the list of chores and lives her life according to her values and the values she shares with those in her family.
I would so love to help you realize that too !!
Here's how it works:
Book an appointment -
tell me some more about you and your family.
Counselling sessions in person or online.
Sessions online via Zoom mean you don't need to leave home, bundle the kids into the car or find a sitter.
Together we will identify how you want to juggle your roles as parent and employee and be the patient parent that you want to be, even when you're super busy.
Our rooms in Baldivis and Singleton are private and cozy.
They are a sanctuary for busy mums who need space to talk and think - without interruption !
We build on your strengths.
I show you some new ways to talk so that people listen to you.
I show you some helpful techniques to 'calm your farm'.
Kylie uses proven counselling strategies to move you from feeling stuck and 'blah' to energised and confident.
At Kylie Bell Counselling, I wish that all mothers could see just how awesome they are.
I help working mums and dads who worry that they can't do it all and who notice that they're getting too stressed with the important people in their lives....
....learn effective ways to communicate and to support themselves so that stress doesn't stain their relationships and they feel calm and competent.
