Anchor Your Life Counselling - Debra Braganca signature.png

It's Not Easy To Be Happy...

Life is a bit like a rollercoaster - you feel both the highs and the lows and the longer you live the more you will get to experience moments of joy and success while also experiencing moments of despair and darkness making it hard to be happy for long.  

The truth is that life is hard and the pain and challenges brought on by external situations and relationships or internal thoughts and feelings can be overwhelming.

The good news is there's no need to give up hope or go through it alone.   My role is to help you reduce the impact and influence all these painful factors have on you while also taking action to build the life you desire.

To learn more about how I can help you please read on...

Counselling can benefit couples and individuals by helping you to create effective change in both your personal life and your relationships.

Couples Counselling

Do you feel alone, hurt and distanced from your partner?

Do you feel unsupported and like they don't have your back?

You long to feel heard and feel loved the way things used to be in your relationship.

Couples counselling can increase connection with your partner, reduce the negativity and create a relationship that feels safe and supportive.

Individual Counselling

Do you feel stuck in a cycle of negative thoughts or worry and daily events are an effort?

Do you find it difficult to trust, feel unsafe or that you're not good enough?

You want to engage with life and feel connected to yourself and others.

Counselling can help you to move through the pain of the past, develop new perspectives of thinking and help you to believe in yourself and others once again.

Don't suffer alone

when with counselling, you can:

Address your vulnerabilities in a safe way to feel heard.

Address the underlying issues causing you hurt and pain.

Develop kind and respectful communication in your relationships.

Develop coping strategies to help you feel safe and more engaged with life

About Debra Bragança

Hi, I'm Debra and like many of my clients, I have had to face traumatic events and challenges, both in my personal life over the years and also in my marriage.  The combination of all these events has enabled me to better understand and empathise with my clients who come to see me for both individual concerns and relationship issues. 

Learning how to manage the effects of these traumatic life events and challenges and having a supportive and secure marriage are the driving force behind my decision to do the work I do today and keep me passionate to support you.


My vast lived experience, my years of private practice work experience, and my ongoing training ensure that I can provide you with relevant professional support.  The training I have undertaken is solution-focused and client based and while not all therapists who work with individuals and couples can say they have had couples training, when you see me for your relationship you can rest assured that you are in the hands of a therapist who has specific couples training.


You can access my services in person if you live in the Redlands; if you live elsewhere in Australia, online counselling is available.

What my clients say

“Since we have been seeing you there have been so many positive changes in our marriage. 
Our high levels of conflict have reduced as we are not escalating as much. 
We are being mindful of one another and more self-aware of how we are responding to each other. 
We feel we are now being heard and understanding each other more.
Thank you for your help, Debra!”
