Life might be messy. And that’s OK.
We’ll work with you no matter where you are.
Our online therapy sessions are perfect for women in Australia who need a bit of flexibility – book in for a session during your lunch break, chat with us after brekkie and start your day right, or schedule a debrief for Friday afternoon when you’ve had a big week.
Or come and enjoy our the beautiful blue lounge in our Northern Beaches practice. We’re overlooking the water at Newport.
Your first counselling session is free.
I’m Amanda Westphal,
an experienced and licensed 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:
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?
YOUR FIRST COUNSELLING SESSION IS NOW FREE. BOOK NOW.
Let’s talk. It’s cost and obligation free and we can meet online or in the practice.
Feel Worthy – The Online Course
Just before the whole world started working online, we put the finishing touches on a brand-new online course 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 course you can start straight away.
Join me in this transformative online course. 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 course 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.
Are you a people pleaser?
There’s nothing wrong with wanting to make others happy, the only problem is when it comes at your own expense. Take my free quiz to see how strong your boundaries are.
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?
Book an 30 minute online therapy session from anywhere in Australia and you’re on your way. 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.
