how to remove bridal anxiety

Revealing my bridal counselling journey

Hi, I’m Holly, your compassionate and dedicated wedding counsellor who is committed to making your wedding planning process a happy and relaxed experience and to show you how to remove bridal anxiety.

During my career, I have been a compassionate advocate for women, providing support to individuals of all ages facing mental health issues, domestic violence, homelessness, and social isolation. Through my experiences, I have witnessed the immense impact of challenging life transitions such as marriage, relationship breakdown, having children, and changing careers on women’s lives. However, it was my work in the wedding industry that opened my eyes to the distinct challenges that brides encounter when planning their weddings.

Planning a wedding should be one of the most exciting times of your life, right? 

So why have you gone from “Yes” to “Stress”?

It can be difficult trying to navigate through all the emotions and uncertainties that come with organising you’re wedding. From being in the wedding industry for over 15 years working with hundreds of brides to be, I can empathise with the pressures, anxieties, and emotional complexities that brides navigate during this significant life event. 

I have seen the struggle with managing the emotional rollercoaster of coordinating vendors, managing guest lists, sticking to a budget and keeping everyone happy while maintaining a loving relationship with their partner. 

I also understand firsthand the challenges of planning a wedding, and the feeling of overwhelm. I just know that with the emotional support and guidance of a dedicated therapist, the process would have been much easier, and much more enjoyable for me.

I have a master’s in counselling and a degree in applied science, majoring in health promotion and family.  I am also a member of the Australian Counselling Association and volunteer at the Women’s Information and Referral Exchange.
