Time for a change?

Face to Face Counselling in Frenchs Forest, or Online Sessions Available. 

Life might be messy. And that’s OK.

I’ll work with you no matter where you are.

Online therapy sessions are perfect for women in Australia who need a bit of flexibility. Or come and enjoy my therapeutic space amongst the trees in Frenchs Forest.  Book in for a session during your lunch break, chat with me after brekkie and start your day right, or schedule a debrief for Friday afternoon when you’ve had a big week.

Your first counselling session is free + Private Health Rebates available.

I’m Amanda Westphal,

an experienced and registered counsellor.


Your Wellness Focus is a respected women’s practice in Sydney’s Northern Beaches helping women like you navigate relationships and life transitions, find freedom from anxiety and self-doubt, and uncover the confidence I know is there (but you might not, yet).

You can settle into our couch, or if you’re looking for online therapy in Australia, you can get a cuppa and relax into yours! 


Your Wellness Focus specialises in women who feel:

anxiety, fear, or worry in a changing world

unsure about how to transition from one stage of life to another

concerned about how you handle your relationships

your boundaries are being pushed (and you’re tired of letting them)

worthlessness and self-doubt


as if you have no idea what your purpose is (or who you really are!)

stress, depression, or sadness

or ready to put old family issues to rest

Or, who know they want:

life coaching, healing from past trauma or couple’s therapy

My approach is completely holistic, using tools from many therapeutic approaches aligned with what will best suit you. I’m known for my action-based framework, meaning we’ll work together to create a roadmap you can use to achieve whatever you want to achieve.

Plus our sessions are designed to suit you. Let’s talk in the beautiful practice, or an online therapy session from wherever you are in Australia.

Most clients say that they felt a sense of relief just from booking in for their free first session. That’s because it’s a tangible step in the right direction. Seeking help is never shameful or embarrassing, but rather empowering.

Want to feel that way too?

Feel Worthy | The Online Program

Just before the whole world started working online, we put the finishing touches on a brand-new online program years in the making. Designed to detangle your brain, equip you with power and self-validation, and give you the tools to address those gross anxiety feelings that pop up on the regular (you know the ones), Feel Worthy – The Plan is a 6 week program that is active twice a year with a limited intake.

Join me in this transformative online program. You can access it course from anywhere in Australia and schedule your classes and worksheets to suit your life.

I’ve spent years counselling women and mentoring children, working with musicians, and handing out coffees to the homeless on Sydney streets, so I’ve seen and heard it all. I’ve helped countless other women similar to you both in person and via my online sessions, and now I’ve created this brilliant program so you can fit your counselling around your life.

This is a judgement-free zone (yeah, I’ve seen it all. No shame here). And it only takes 6 weeks to kick-start a happier future. Best of all, you can do this from your couch. Or your patio. Or your bed. Beanbag? Hammock? Sure. Wherever you feel safe and comfy.


Let’s talk. It’s cost and obligation free and we can meet online or in the practice.

What can we work on (together)?


A counselling session you can fit into your lunchbreak?

Yep. It’s way more satisfying than that leftover pizza.
OK, leftover pizza is actually pretty good, but why not enjoy a slice of Supreme alongside
the knowledge that you’re actively working towards detangling your brain trickery?

We’ll address insecurities and anxieties, and I’ll give you ideas and advice that you can implement straight away. All that, plus bucketfuls of compassion and care – because I’ve always got your wellbeing at the core of everything I do.


I just wish to say thank you for everything you have been helping me with over the past year. I truly feel you have been the inspiration to assist me to shine.

Amanda is fantastic. She has a beautiful approach to help me cut through what is in my head to find the simple truths that can otherwise be hard to see. Over multiple appointments, she has taken me on a journey to understand myself much more deeply and empowered my self worth.

Nurturing Your Inner Child

Nurturing Your Inner Child

Taking some time to remember who you were as a child can bring back memories of carefree days before the responsibilities of adulthood came along. Or, if you experienced neglect, trauma, or other emotional pain early in life, your inner child will be in need of some nurturing.
