When we own the story, we can write a brave new ending

Plan Managed







My name is Debra Braganca and I provide counselling services in the Redlands as well as online.


I understand that taking the first step to seeing a Counsellor can be hard but it will be the first step to reaching your goal in improving your quality of life and I am here to help you take each and every step as we get rid of the challenges you are facing along the way.

I offer a free 20 minute online or telephone consult to discuss your concerns and to answer any questions you may have.  It is also an opportunity for you to find out about my counselling approach, how I can best help you and what to expect at our first session together.

I look forward to speaking with you...

"I am so very thankful that Debra was recommended to me. I was in a very dark place in my life and my anxiety was at an all time high. It was affecting me mentally and physically. Debra is non judgmental and makes you feel at ease and that you can tell her anything without any judgement. I think it is so important that you can talk about anything and everything so you can start to really heal and get better. She has given me fantastic tools which have worked way above and beyond my expectations and so quickly. I honestly don’t know where I would be today without her knowledge, kindness and great listening skills. I feel very lucky to have found someone which is a perfect fit for me. I also loved that I didn’t have to be restricted to a max of 10 sessions on the mental health plan as she offers a great service at an affordable price without a mental health plan. This has allowed me to focus on me getting better and not worry about the costs as much. Thank you is not enough."


"I feel very blessed that my children were fortunate enough to have met Debra. I was not sure what to expect, but after the first introduction of my kids with Debra, both of them immediately felt comfortable with her, and felt that they could trust her. It gives me great peace to know that my teenagers have someone that they can go to in difficult times, that will support and understand them, and have their best interest at heart. Thanks for providing a safe place for my children in tough times. I believe that you will be a rock for them in many years to come."


"The results from the tools Debra has shown me have been phenomenal and my feelings of anxiousness and overwhelm have reduced dramatically.  She is compassionate, understanding and personable.... What an amazing woman.."

Counselling has given me the strategies to learn how to have better relationships that mean I now feel so much more content and respected both of myself and by others.
