About

Wendy is dedicated to supporting mothers who are feeling overwhelmed, stressed-out and tired of all that mum-guilt.

Wendy has helped hundreds of mums through her private counselling, therapy, coaching, online courses, workshops and talks.

Mums reach out to Wendy every week because they’re tired of the way they’re feeling and thinking. They want stronger connections to their children and/or partner, their career or life purpose, or their sense of identity – as this often becomes blurred under the weight of the motherhood.

Welcome

Thanks for visiting my site – it’s lovely to have you here.
I’m Wendy, a mother of 2 school-aged children, and a professional counsellor and psychotherapist, and a wellbeing coach for mums. I’m also a speaker and workshop facilitator for women’s emotional wellbeing, and the founder of Mind Momentum – a private counselling, therapy and coaching practice.
I specialise in supporting mothers with their emotional wellbeing, relationships, motherhood, parenting, career challenges and more.
If you’d benefit from professional, non-judgemental support, nurturing guidance, information and education to empower you to become the happiest and healthiest version of you possible, then I’m here for you. 
Are you weighed down by feelings of mum-guilt or overwhelm much of the time?
Do you often feel torn between raising your kids and furthering your career or business goals?
Tired of the tension in your body and the endless worrying or “To-Do” list that’s keeping you awake at night?
…Or, maybe you just don’t have the energy to enjoy life with your loved ones in the way you wish you could?
I’m here to help you – by live video consultation, phone, live text-based chat consults, or face to face therapy in Sydney.
Or, check out my online courses so you can start feeling better on your own, at your own pace, without committing to regular consultations. 
For anyone wondering, I hold the following qualifications:
• Master Soc. Science (Addiction Studies)
• Bachelor Soc. Science (Psychology)
• Diploma of Counselling

 

Choosing Your Counsellor or Therapist

Please allow me to share with you, that one of the most important parts of choosing your counsellor, coach or therapist, lies in your connection with them; the rapport, trust and relationship you’re able to build with them (it’s not all about qualifications or the type of therapy being used). Research studies in psychology have shown this over and over. 
 I’ve worked with many women from Australia and around the world, to help them move out of feelings of overwhelm or chaos, and into a greater sense of calm and inner peace, more joy, a greater sense of self-confidence, stronger connections and support with the people they love most in their life, and ultimately greater happiness. They’ve strengthened their relationships with themselves, their partner, children, co-workers, friends, families and their outlook on life. These women are now living their life in a more present, and more grateful way.
Your health and wellbeing is like a puzzle. It can be complex in some ways, as it’s made up of so many different bits and pieces. But when you have a holistic view, and you gain a better understanding of how each piece can influence other pieces, you can learn and remember what you need to do, in order to look and feel your best. There are biological (including genetic), environmental, social, psychological and spiritual influences that need to be considered
Every day, you make hundreds of tiny choices. I believe the result of these many and varied choices contribute to the way you’re feeling right now.
With my warm and open approach, I believe in building nurturing relationships with the women I support – based on honest, open communication, and mutual respect.
I will work with you:
• To support you, be with you, and empower you,
• To help you overcome your personal challenges,
• Provide you with evidence-based information and greater understanding (psycho-education) of your experience,
• Guide you on your journey toward personal insight and growth, and
• Support you toward achieving your BEST state of emotional & mental wellbeing.
As we’re all different, and individual issues requires a different approach, I use an eclectic, evidence-based approach to counselling. Some of these approaches are Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Person-Centred Therapy, Solution-Focussed Therapy and Mindfulness-based stress-reduction techniques. These techniques can be extremely helpful in enabling you to gain greater personal insight, find your inner strength and confidence, reduce symptoms of stress and anxiety, balance emotions, and gain clarity and confidence to move forward in your life.
I will help you get started on that road to positive change, and stay by your side, for as little or as long as you like.
With many years of experience working with adults and young people in various environments, including occupational rehabilitation, human resource management, a drug and alcohol rehabilitation program, and mentoring (young mums program), I’m committed to helping you resolve whatever may be holding you back from finding your way forward. You’ll be supported in a safe space, as I work with you, in confidence, without judgement.
Having travelled to many countries around the world, I’ve also lived and worked in China, South Korea, and Canada – and have a strong appreciation of how different cultures and values shape the ways in which we live.
I’m married with 2 young children, and very much appreciate the challenges and nature of all things pregnancy, birth, the postnatal period, parenting young children, and the impact this can have on your life in every way!
