Life should be fun and enriched with things that make us joyful and fulfilled.

This is where Toni-Maree can help – she loves to conquer the crap and give you the joy back.  With her nurturing, kind and calming approach, Toni-Maree provides unique strategies and tools that enable you to focus on being relaxed and happy again.

If you or someone you know is experiencing mood swings, irritability, difficulty sleeping or concentrating or loss of motivation in life, please contact us today. You will receive care and support from your personal qualified life coach, Toni-Maree, who has had over 15 years’ experience in this industry.


Life will always consist of high’s and low’s but when stress and uncertainty take over it can be hard to manage day-to-day activities.

Relationships define who we are and provide a sense of well-being as they bring love, mutual respect and shared experiences to our lives.  Whether they are family ties, friendships, marriages and partnerships or links through business, positive relationships help us create the lives we desire.

About Toni-Maree

I help people understand anxiety and implement tools to emotionally reconnect with their lives. I am passionate about making life calmer, happier and less stressful by giving you tools to increase communication with those around you and manage situations that might be holding you back.

As an accredited counsellor and life coach I have worked with many individuals and couples in Australia and overseas to implement techniques to more easily manage life’s up’s and down’s, to re-connect, and find a broader perspective. Unlike other therapists, I work alongside medical practitioners such as GP’s and Psychologists to give you a holistic approach to your mental health journey. I offer you non-judgemental support whatever your life’s path, to get you to where you want to be.

After experiencing the pain of depression and living through many years of anxiety and fear myself, I have got to where I am now. I understand exactly what it’s like to suffer anxiety and depression. This is why I am so passionate and driven to help others going through what I have experienced, so they can come out the other side happier, calmer and healthier.

We all experience tough times in life and that’s what makes us all human. If you have been experiencing anxiety or depression, or you have a child going through it, please get in touch so we can work it out together. We will work together to bring clarity and get you back to living a life you love.


"Before I met Toni-Maree my Anxiety controlled every aspect of my life. Through constant sessions where I was made to feel comfortable and heard I made the change that was needed. My whole mindset has changed and it has influenced so many new and positive things within my life including my relationships with other people! I never thought I could feel better through counselling… now I know how much more life has to offer and it's all thanks to this special lady!"


I've been seeing Toni-Maree on and off as required for the past couple of years for relationship, personal development and work-related issues.  I have a very good expectation of how she will work, including pushing me.  She handles anything I throw at her professionally and supportively.
Making contact with Toni-Maree was really easy and she did a very comprehensive phone appointment before meeting with me in person; this made me feel like she wanted to ensure she was the right fit for me as a client.
As much as I hate this, (and also appreciate it), Toni-Maree will call me out if she feels I'm not being honest with myself, or am dancing around something that I find difficult to discuss. She will robustly discuss sensitive topics to ensure they're looked at with objective eyes, which in-turn has significantly reduced sensitivities around the topic making them much more easy to comprehend and deal with.
Toni-Maree has helped me to get through some difficult, stressful and anxious scenarios and become a much better person for it.
I strongly recommend Toni-Maree as both a personal Counsellor and a great life coach."


“Toni-Maree is great at what she does as a counsellor and she really cares about her clients.  She has helped me get through one of the hardest times of my life."

“Toni-Maree listened to what was going on in my life, from my relationship breakdown to my employment issues. I told her exactly what I wanted to achieve and we went from there. Toni-Maree will call BullSh*t if she feels it’s not what you need at the time, or you start reverting to old thought patterns.  As a result of therapy with Toni-Maree, I have additional tools (like NLP techniques) to pull out whenever I feel anxious or like everything’s getting on top of me again. I highly recommend Toni-Maree to anyone needing counselling support as I felt heard and understood, as she helped me to get my marriage, career and life back on track."

“Toni-Maree helped to give me clarity during a time where I was feeling lost and seeking answers. Her gentle approach, warmth and kindness helped me to feel at ease as she worked and gave me insight into areas of my life I was struggling with. Her intuition and knowledge is second to none and I was so impressed with her accuracy and professionalism as an anxiety specialist life coach."

“I’ve been seeing Toni-Maree for about 5 weeks now. She has helped me really change my life for the better, from the first day I met T-M she made me feel very relaxed & comfortable in her office. Shes firm & honest without being over bearing or intimidating. I look forward to our counselling sessions together and would encourage everyone to meet her, especially if you are experiencing relationship issues."

Tenille V.

“Working with Toni-Maree as a life coach has helped me to pinpoint the underlying reasons for my stress and frustrations. My sessions have opened my eyes to my potential as a person, and made me remember who I really am and what I really stand for. Toni-Maree has helped me to understand why I do the things I do and react in the ways that I do, and to change the beliefs that guide my actions. As a result, my stress levels are down, my confidence is up and I am able to focus more on the positives in my life. This change has not only affected me for the better, but my relationships with my husband and children have also benefited from a happier more calm wife and mother."

Haley Websdane

“I first came across Toni-Maree by accident.  I was feeling very low and I found her in a magazine.  I thought, well I could give her a ring. I rang and she answered immediately but was somewhat stunned.  Her phone had been broken for the best part of a week and she had just that moment put her sim card in her daughter’s phone to see if she had any messages – and there I was. Since then, Toni-Maree has been a major player in my life.  Her supportive counselling skills have helped me move from a place of darkness to retiring with the courage to enjoy my life as it should be, not as others want it to be. Since I made this decision to work with Toni-Maree, the world had opened up for me and I am no longer anxious.  The low feelings have dissipated and I feel better than ever."

Penny Cilento

“Toni-Maree is a very professional and personable holistic life coach who’s had a positive and extremely productive influence on a family member. She has helped her to retrain her objectives and focus and I would absolutely recommend Toni-Maree as a life coach and mentor."

Hil JB

“I’ve been working with Toni-Maree as a life coach. Toni- Maree has the fabulous intuitive ability to tap in and connect quickly PLUS untangled my turmoil and anxiety in a holistic and beautiful manner. I will be back for more. Do not hesitate. This lady is spot on and you’ll connect on the same wavelength. In gratitude."

Down With Fear

I wrote the following in February 2016 and never published because it was too personal for me.  On the surface, it seems like a pretty straight forward blog but with my mum dying I was full of fear and afraid of everything.  Doctors, work, family,  being orphaned and a stiff breeze.  You name it;...
