Blue Jay Counselling

Hunter Valley, NSW


Challenges and difficult experiences are a part of life - and sometimes we need support so we can move forward in a meaningful way. I understand the courage it takes to ask for help and to share your innermost thoughts, emotions and pain. And I also believe in the power of your strength and capacity for growth and the resilience to overcome your challenges no matter what you've been through.

You won't be judged here - you have likely had enough of that in your life from others and from yourself. I will support you to navigate your difficult experiences and emotions; build self-awareness, confidence and clarity; look at how your past has impacted you; and develop healthier coping skills to create long-term change. We will work together to understand your unique needs and goals, and find the right tools and strategies so you to take action toward creating a more fulfilling life now and into the future. ​

"Your present circumstances don't determine where you go;
they merely determine where you start."

Couples therapy can be helpful if you are experiencing:

  • Disconnection, you don't talk about anything deeper than work, kids, chores and schedules

  • Lack of 'spark', intimacy, trust, respect, fun and friendship

  • Difficulties in resolving conflict or feeling stuck in cycles or communication patterns that feel impossible to change.

Meet Skye Welbourne

Like you, I have had my fair share of challenges and difficulties, and this journey through life led me to pursue counselling as a career. I have grown to believe more and more that it is possible to move forward from our challenges in a meaningful and healthy way if we find the right tools and support, and take action to create the change that we seek. 


I am a wife, Mum of two boys, and three Border Collie pups. In my spare time you'll find me at karate, playing piano or taking my kids on adventures. 

Find out more about my story, education and experience on the About Me page.

I was looking for a Counsellor that could meet face to face in a judgement-free zone, someone that cares about me as an individual, where recommendations are personalised in regard to my marriage breakdown. Skye gave me the freedom to express feelings and thoughts on a wide range of issues running through my head. I was also able to explore solutions moving forward. Skye is exceptionally courteous, professional, and a great communicator. If you’re looking for a Counsellor to walk through a major life challenge, I would wholeheartedly recommend Skye Welbourne.
