"I have been seeing Dr Barbara Sheil, a wonderful Scientist, Educator and Life Coach who specialises in counselling women through IVF and fertility issues. She works out of the Azure Medical Clinic in Cottesloe so if you are in Perth and want someone who gets it - I highly recommend Barbara.
Barbara also does Skype or email consultation so even if you are on the other side of the world, she is genuinely wonderful and has gotten me to a place where I can write a post like this."

Children with stress and anxiety
Sarah* aged 11 came to see me with anxiety which was causing her to withdraw from her friends, have difficulty sleeping, have digestive issues, and manifest controlling behaviours. To help Sarah overcome her anxiety I began by explaining how fear worked in her body and also her mind. Through advice and learning, Sarah understood why she was using these controlling behaviours and how they were affecting her life. By applying the life skills she has learned through our sessions, Sarah is now thriving in Year 7 and has successfully achieved her goals at school, she's confident, and is enjoying her friendships again. Sarah now has the ability to greet new challenges with confidence and calmness, and if she feels the need, we regroup and work out new skills Sarah needs to develop her abilities further. Dr Barbara
"When I transitioned from year 4 into year 5 at primary school I was separated from my twin for the first time. Being separated from my twin, gave me a bit of anxiety. Dr Sheil has helped me through this anxiety using great methods that reassured me and gave me confidence. Dr Sheil explained how our mind and body works together and how we can control our thoughts. I have seen Dr Sheil on and off since year 5 and she has helped me with my stress, fear, anxiety and much more. She is great at helping you achieve what you want to and has a solution for everything. It makes me feel great that I have Dr Sheil who is always there to guide me and assist through the ups and downs of life. I highly recommend her to anyone who needs support. " Sarah

“I am now able to recognize when I am moving too fast mentally and also physically. I feel more in control of my emotions. As a result of this my sleeping patterns have greatly improved. I would recommend Barbara to anyone who desires to change old ways of living which have ceased to be of benefit”
