Online counselling is an increasingly popular approach to counselling. Research has shown remarkable advantages of “online therapy”, including:
- Conveniences: You can talk with our counsellors in the comfort of your own home or anywhere you like. There is also more flexibility in session time.

Our counselling approach focuses on supporting clients to find happiness through gaining awareness of the way that their minds work. We also facilitate discussions to develop clarity relating to our mental, emotional and sometimes physical well-being.
Clients have found counselling has assisted them to resolve their relationship issues through improved communication and mediation. They have also found counselling allows them to live more mindfully, develop a healthier experience of self-worth and have a greater ability to manage life’s stresses.
Restful Waters’ counsellors are professionally qualified and have each undertaken a minimum of 7 years of training. As a result they are able to support clients to work through challenging issues with deep empathy and respect. They have taken many years to understand themselves before moving into the role of helping others.
Our focus remains on the client’s objectives, facilitating the development of the therapeutic relationship along with achievable objectives, confidentiality and trust.
At Restful Waters, we assist people to question negative notions and ideas of themselves. Talking with someone who is impartial yet supportive provides the advantage of seeing situations from a broader perspective. This gives rise to greater choice in how we want to respond.
Some of the many skills that Restful Waters’ counsellors draw upon in supporting their clients include person centred therapy, gestalt therapy, acceptance therapy, cognitive and behavioural inquiry, mindfulness and awareness training.
What is Counselling?
In counselling, we address specific problems and our reactions such as stress, anger, fear, conflict, separation, loss and grief. We can assist you to develop a deeper understanding of the prevailing issues, develop clarity, a greater appreciation of oneself and more acceptance of others and the situation. In experiencing clear observation we gain a deeper perspective of issues and our reactions. Our clients indicate to us, counselling helps them to have a heightened sense of self-worth and resilience, improves communication skills and the ability to better deal with ongoing life issues.
Counselling is a highly effective method of gaining insight and solutions to emotional and social issues as well as finding direction during times of loss and change. We all experience challenges in our lives from time to time and we may often deal with these ourselves or by talking to friends and family. There are other times that we could do with some extra support. Read more
You and your partner can have a more beautiful life together when commitment, communication and cherishing are established between the two of you. Sometimes we need assistance to navigate and express ourselves in ways that support these elements. We all experience difficulty in relationship from time to time and can crave intimacy, connection and understanding. Read more
Family conflict can be devastating. We can assist you to form a more cohesive family unit through facilitating communication and allowing each person the opportunity to have a good look at how things are actually working in order to resolve any issues. Families may come to counselling to look at their communication, behavioural issues in youth and adolescents, personal conflicts within the family, separation, divorce or blended family adjustments, substance abuse, and career transitions.
