I am a Registered Counsellor based in Brisbane, Australia, and love working with people of all ages and genders to help increase self-worth, make time for self care and stress management, feel more confident, reduce feelings of anxiety/overwhelm, and live the happy, healthy, confident life they’ve always wanted – without the overthinking and negative self-talk they currently experience!
Since 2015, I’ve worked as a health, fitness and mindset coach, successfully helping hundreds of clients around the world become a stronger and more confident version of themselves both physically and mentally. As part of my Counselling practice, I specialise in Body Image and Eating Issues (including eating disorders such as Bulimia, Orthorexia and Binge Eating Disorder) as well as general counselling and self-development coaching.
WHAT CLIENTS ARE SAYING...
Absolutely love my sessions with Sami! She is a great listener and she always makes me feel so comfortable, it’s like chatting with a good friend🌞💛
COUNSELLING CLIENT / SEPTEMBER '22
I feel like Sami's sessions allow me to go deeper. The strategies ease my anxiety just knowing they are available to me. It's like I've been given permission to feel. So thankful for Sami helping me!
COUNSELLING CLIENT / JULY '22
Comfortable and helpful session, left me feeling confident moving forward with my new strategies to try out, and within myself 🙂
COUNSELLING CLIENT / JANUARY '22
I'm no longer stressing about every food choice and I'm able to take a step back and look at my triggers with a different eye and understand where they are coming from. I've been struggling with my food for years and thought I'd never get past it, Sami's support has been next to none and I really can't thank her enough 🥰
COACHING CLIENT / MAY '22
Sami, I’m so glad I found you! I feel seen and heard. I love that you give me actual tangible strategies that help! You are amazing at what you do.
COUNSELLING CLIENT / APRIL '22
Sami was very helpful and understanding when I needed help and was feeling vulnerable, I know I still have a way to go, but I now have the tools to keep moving forward and define my own version of healthy that fits my lifestyle and values!
COACHING CLIENT / DECEMBER '21
Never have I felt more comfortable with my first session with a counsellor! Thank you Sami!
COUNSELLING CLIENT / JULY '22
Sami has honestly made such an impact on me. I'm immersing myself in more positive voices and it's like a light has been turned on in my brain. I am starting to give myself permission to be happy and confident, while also enjoying food and not beating myself up about what I'm eating. I'm finally not spending my days obsessing over food and it's amazing what that makes room for in my headspace!
COACHING CLIENT / MARCH '22
I have never felt so comfortable with someone before!! I love how Sami makes me feel heard
COUNSELLING CLIENT / AUGUST '22
Thank you SO much for being so great at genuinely being a sounding board. It's awesome to talk to a third party without feeling judged. You are awesome!
COACHING CLIENT / JANUARY '22
I help my clients to:
- Show up more confidently in life
- Stop people pleasing behaviours and become more assertive
- Manage symptoms of stress, anxiety and/or depression
- Navigate through life transitions
- Create a healthier relationship with food/their body
- Develop a skillset of coping tools for difficult emotions
- Communicate better with partners/family/in the workplace
- Identify and align with their values
By helping to discover the deeper origins of my clients’ problems, working through limiting beliefs, implementing self-care techniques and evidence-based strategies, and providing support and encouragement, I help my clients show up more authentically in life, armed with the tools they need to succeed in their desired goals and outcomes.
It’s important to me that my clients feel they are in a safe and non-judgmental atmosphere in order to create an encouraging and supportive space for self-exploration, and work towards positive changes in thoughts, feelings and behaviours.
Along with my empathetic and client-centred approach, I utilise various proven psychotherapy techniques to increase each client’s level of self-awareness and autonomy in life, and safely guide them along to not only create their own path with goals to work towards, but implement actionable steps to help achieve them, too!
Sessions are offered online on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, delivered via Zoom.
