A holistic health practice that works on all areas of body, mind and soul, for a well rounded, individualised health plan for all.
Anchored Healing was developed by Kylie who has a passion for working with people and improving their experiences here on earth. From a young age Kylie has always wanted to work in the helping profession and after suffering with mental health at a young age, Kylie knew the area she wanted to work in.
After 12 years in social work specialising in mental health Kylie wanted to branch out and look into more holistic therapies and options to heal people. Thus, after further study and her own spiritual growth and development, Anchored Healing was born.
One of the areas Kylie specialises in is alternative trauma therapies. After working as a social worker for over 12 years Kylie has seen so many people medicated for their mental health and then shown the door. After much research, additional study and completing her Bachelor of Psychology and Masters in Counselling, Kylie is believing and passionate about using holistic therapies to improve people’s mental, physical and spiritual health.
After becoming a fan of the American Psychiatrist, Bessel Van Der Kolk who specialised in research for complex PTSD, it solidified in Kylie’s mind the need for alternative therapies.
Consumers with ongoing anxiety and/or depressive symptoms can really benefit from alternative health therapies, such as Reiki, Crystal Healing and Acupressure. The best part of seeking assistance from Anchored Healing is that Kylie is a trained mental health professional, who can both work from a counselling perspective as well as introducing different modalities that may further assist each consumer with a tailored, individualised health plan.
As an avid animal lover, Kylie also specialises in pet bereavement counselling. ‘ I could not live without my animals,’ Kylie states, ‘they are such a source of companionship, loyalty and love. So many people don’t realise how deeply they impact our lives’. This is why she has developed a specialised area in counselling, focusing on pet bereavement, to assist those with the loss of a fur (or scale!) loved one.
Anchored Healing welcomes people of all ages from all backgrounds. If Kylie feels as though she is not the right service for you she will assist you in referral options to alternative services. Kylie works with both mental health, physical health and spiritual health ailments and injuries.
Kylie has worked extensively with young adults aged between 15-25 in a mental health capacity and has experience in being a clinical lead at a leading youth mental health facility, as well as a coordinator for a local council municipality. Kylie also has extensive experience within the GLBTQI+ sector and people from a multicultural background.
Kylie thoroughly enjoys working with people who are at the beginning of their spiritual journey or maybe new to experiencing holistic therapies. Or anyone looking for an alternative solution.
Anchored Healing offers a nonjudgmental, confidential service to all.
Kylie offers a unique service as a qualified and trained counsellor, with background training in Psychology and Youth Work. Kylie has over 12 years’ experience as a social worker, specialising in mental health, homelessness, marginalised populations, people in the justice system as well as workers in the sex industry.
Kylie uses her unique skills to assess the best holistic practice for each consumer she meets. Kylie can work with consumers purely on a counselling basis or introduce specialised study areas to assist with healing and continued health. These could include, but are not limited to acupressure, Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapies (CBT), Mindfulness, Sound therapies, Crystal healing, Reiki, pet bereavement, anxiety workshops and walking groups.
