We all face difficulties and challenges in our lives and we all deal with them differently.

The stress of work, family, relationships, ill-health, even the loss of someone close or the sense that our life is not going in the direction we want, can lead to a feeling that there must be more to life.

If you are facing difficulties, skilled counselling and psychotherapy can help you resolve your problems, achieve personal growth and enhance your emotional and physical well being.

Counselling may be brief and focused on finding solutions to particular problems, or it may be a more extended exploration where you discover inner resources which help you move forward in life.

Psychotherapy is often a longer-term process that focuses on deeper self-exploration, issues of personal meaning and the impact of past events and trauma. You gain a deeper level of self-understanding with assistance to overcome persistent or recurring difficulties in your life.

At Inner Health Solutions we offer counselling and psychotherapy to men and women in the areas of relationship/marriage issues, stress and anxiety, grief and loss, trauma, depression, chronic and terminal illness, personal growth, life transitions and women's health.

We specialise in Couple's Therapy and our Counsellor Deborah Sheehy has completed Level 3 Training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy, a world renowned evidence based model for effective Couple's Therapy.

All our counselling sessions are conducted in a confidential, respectful and supportive environment. Some private health fund rebates are available.

Consultation Fees for Counselling: $130 per hour
Couples Counselling $160 per hour


These ancient practices are becoming recognised because they are designed to aid in the body’s ability to maintain good health, enhance the immune system and reduce stress and anxiety.

The MEDITATION classes taught at Inner Health Solutions, specialise in teaching people the fundamental techniques of Mindfulness and Meditation to help relax the body and calm the mind. These techniques help to identify and let go of both physical and mental stress, increase self-awareness and promote a positive and optimistic outlook. The techniques are simple to learn and can integrate easily into our daily life.

The TAI CHI and CHI GONG exercises taught at Inner Health Solutions are designed to promote the natural flow of Chi which can improve emotional and mental stability and increase the healthy functioning of the body’s immune system.In the practice of Tai Chi or Chi Gong, if the natural flow of energy (known as Chi) becomes blocked as it flows through the body, it can contribute to ill-health, stress and fatigue

These exercises combine simple breathing techniques with physical movements, meaning previous exercise experience isn't necessary. They are tailored to your individual requirements and are fun and easy to learn. Regular practice helps build up the protective Chi in our bodies, which increases our vital energy.

We invite you to experience the benefits - all are guaranteed to help you feel rejuvenated and energized.
