Get the help you need
... from your partner and children
At Kylie Bell Counselling, I help
working mums and dads
stay calm amongst the busyness and chaos
so they can get all the family helping out at home and
feel fulfilled again.
How are you?
Say goodbye to
Parent, employee, partner, colleague..
there is always so much to do and you're feeling so, so tired !
Getting help from family members would be fantastic.
BUT: every time you ask or hint: it's crickets. Or worse, you're accused of 'nagging'.
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 parents (especially mums) and teaching them how to effectively ask for what they need is my number one goal.
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.
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 when I talk with women about how they can feel loved and listened to at home and at work.
I would so love to help you get the help you need, too !!
Here's how it works:
Book an appointment -
tell me some more about you and how you want things to be different at home and at work.
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 where you want family members to help - what that looks like for you.
Then I teach you some easy, effective self management and communication hacks.
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'.
I use 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.
