Parenting Support & Family Counselling

When parents come to see us at Aware Family Wellness about struggling to cope with or manage their children’s behaviour, we work with the family as a whole system – what impacts on one impacts on all. We help you to identify hotspots, roadblocks and ways to move forward. We look at old patterns that have become engrained and may not work any more. We help you as a family to visualise what life would look like if things were more functional and more chilled out at home – and we support you to take the steps to get there.

If this sounds like what your family needs, give us a call to book in an initial assessment.

Individual and Couples Counselling

When life gets tricky or when our mental health is struggling, it can impact on so many areas of our life – our relationships, our work, our social lives and our relationship with our partner or kids.

At Aware Family Wellness we take an integrative approach to your mental health and wellbeing – we consider all areas of your physical, emotional, psychological and social health and particularly focus on the ways that stress can manifest and interrupt our lives. We provide you with the tools to work through past pains and trauma and make the changes to help you get back on track – to go from surviving to thriving. Give us a call today!

Don't go it alone

Sometimes we get so used to struggling, that we don’t always see things can be any other way. Have you ever had those days where you sit and think ‘is this how it’s always going to be?’, ‘isn’t there a better way?’ 

Here at Aware Family Wellness, we would love to help you get things back on track.

Can't see the forest for the trees?

So many parents attend Aware Family Wellness struggling with the same issue … that we get so busy and focused on creating the best life we can for our kids, busting our butts so our kids don’t have to struggle … that they end up missing out on the number one thing that they crave – our time, attention and connection.

Here at Aware Family Wellness, we would love to help you to check in with what’s important, to reprioritise what matters most and to rebuild connection in the household. If this sounds like your family … reach out.

Got a struggling relationship?

Here at Aware Family Wellness, one of our core values centres around building and maintaining nurturing connections with those that mean the most to us. Whether it be with our partner, kids, parents, bestie or workmates, the impact of relationship strains on our mental health, happiness and energy can be pretty major. 

Make an appointment to see how we can help you rekindle your connections and build healthier and more satisfying relationships.

The healing power of nature

Have you ever noticed how good it feels to step outside, take in some deep breaths and just be still? Our lives have become so ‘indoorsy’ (particularly during COVID) that it wouldn’t be unusual if we found ourselves travelling from indoors, to inside a car, to inside an office or workplace, to back inside a car, to back inside our homes. Sunlight and fresh air has so many benefits for the mental health of us and our families. Stepping away from devices in particular can have pretty profound impacts on our mood and behaviour.

What’s one way that you can incorporate more time outdoors?

How drained is your cup?

“Busy, busy, busy”. Have you ever noticed these days that when you ask someone how they have been, they often reply ‘busy’? Like it’s become a status symbol – a competition about who can push the limits of busyness the furthest.

Being busy isn’t necessarily a bad thing – but how do you look after YOU in the throes of all this hustling? We all know you can’t pour from an empty cup – how do you fill yours?

Here at Aware Family Wellness, we would love to help you get things back on track.
