I gather life is proving challenging for yourself, or a loved one, at the moment. 

Well..........challenging might not be a strong enough word, right! 

Maybe it's more like.......​

  • I'm shaken to the core, how could this happen? I have no idea what to do next. 

  • I feel so overwhelmed, I don't know how we can go on.....I'm losing hope that we will make it.

  • I've had enough, I feel so angry, I could just scream, why doesn't he get what he is doing?

  • Why can't I stop doing this, I'm going around the mountain again!

  • I don't know how to say 'NO', but this has to stop, it's not good for the kids.


I get it, I really do, life, and relationships, can be soooo hard at times!

Libby Baensch, counsellor at Restore counselling & family therapy

Libby Baensch

Counsellor​ & Relationship Therapist


We all need help at some time in life with hurts and issues. I also know from my life experience, and those I've worked with, that problems, pain and getting to the point of 'I just cant take this anymore', can actually be an opportunity for personal healing and growth - the beginning of a hard, but good, journey of restoration. 

At RESTORE I offer professional counselling, where my client - their needs, story and goals are at the centre of the work we do together. I intentionally build a safe, confidential and supportive therapeutic relationship where clients feel comfortable to share their hurts, fears and hopes.


I hope that I can be of help to you.
