I have worked with Mandy in both her group programs and individually. She is a wonderful and committed coach and my regular check in’s with her are always valuable in supporting me to keep on track with nurturing my own wellbeing while being a busy Mum of two young children.

It is unbelievable what can fit into a one-day retreat – Since attending Mandy’s first retreat back in 2016, I’ve made my own self-care a priority. The most important gift I have gained from Mandy’s is… no more being too busy… this is truly a day to give to me – I deserve it!

It’s been a privilege to be involved in Mandy’s retreats over the last few years, and to see how much they have helped and empowered the participants. I have also gained personal insight which has had a lasting impact on my own well being.

Day Retreats for Women

The Rest and Restore Retreat is about women joining together to celebrate, connect, learn, laugh and play. This one day retreat provides the opportunity to slow down, prioritise yourself, nourish your Body, Mind and Spirit and reflect on what’s really important to you. The retreat is based on 5 ancient healing salves – silence, nature, movement, music and story-telling. These activities are woven throughout the day, allowing you to connect with yourself on a deep physical, mental and emotional level.

Personal Coaching and Counselling

Welcome to Wellness stress management
Welcome to Wellness offers qualified and experienced Counselling and Coaching.
Counselling:
Life is full of challenges and some of them can seem overwhelming. Reaching out for support during these times is actually a sign of strength. Counselling gives you the chance to talk with a qualified person who will really listen to you and can help you discover new ideas and new ways of resolving a problem. It can be a good stress relief to talk to someone who will be non-judgemental, independent of your situation, who will not demand that you to act on their advice, and who won’t be hurt by anything you say. It is an opportunity to share some of your worries or burdens and to feel you do not have to do everything alone. Being heard and being able to share your story can help you feel lighter and more capable of meeting those challenges.

Coaching:

“Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.” Dalai Lama

Coaching is a process that enables you to get from where you are now to where you want to be – giving you the happy life you deserve. There are times in our life when we may feel a bit ‘stuck, in a rut. and are not quite sure what actions to take to make change happen. Life coaching enables you to focus holistically on your life and identify the way forward. It helps you identify your true values and to plan and implement actions that help you live a more wholehearted and fulfilling life. The role of the coach by your side is to support, encourage and motivate you to ensure you achieve your goals.

Adolescent Anxiety

Specialising in Adolescent Anxiety, I have seen significant trends in issues causing some of our young people mental health challenges over 13 years as a student counsellor and my three decade as a high school teacher.

Anxiety is the most common mental health condition in Australia. On average, one in four people – one in three women and one in five men – will experience anxiety at some stage in their life1. In a 12-month period, over two million Australians experience anxiety2.

Anxiety disorders can be especially serious for young people, because they are still developing. If left untreated, anxiety disorders in teenagers can have long-term effects that can continue into adulthood. While there are many online services for young people with Anxiety, face to face support from a trained professional is often what young people need.

By providing immediate support to young people with anxiety and other mental health conditions, I provide a caring and supportive environment, and a significant understanding of the issues of concern for young people today.
I offer a range of strategies and tools to help them manage their symptoms, decrease the incidence of anxiety attacks and find ways to cope better and move on in life.
If your teenager/young person is struggling, feel free to call now to see if my services would be a good fit for them – 0415 253 169 to lock in a ‘no obligation’ call.

Mandy Price

Mandy Price 2020

Mandy has been an educator in the area of Health and Personal Development for 30 years and a counsellor for 14 years.

She created her business Welcome to Wellness after her own experience with a health crisis.
After several major changes in her life she realised that she was experiencing Adrenal Burn-Out which required her to re-evaluate her values and choices in life.

As a counsellor herself she did find the means to help her recover but it was a process that required a lot of time and money.  She became passionate about helping people avoid what she had experienced and began running one day retreats for women to rest and restore. Mandy believes in the value of Preventative Health Care and that is why she is so passionate about the services she offers.

Whilst I have been a ‘Rushing Woman’ myself I am concerned at the effects our busy lifestyles are having on women’s health, happiness and relationships. Without time for restoration, our bodies can burn out. Adrenal exhaustion is a rapidly growing condition.

I believe that our health is our main wealth and often it is not until we are suffering poor health that we take the time to look after and value our well being.

Taking time out from the demands, responsibilities and busyness of the day is an effective way to restore one’s well being.
