It takes a lot of courage to make a phone call reaching out for help. It’s not something lost on therapist Michaela Rizqallah. “I will do everything I can to make whoever is sitting in front of me feel as comfortable and safe as they possibly can,” she said.

Owner of LIFE: Enhanced Therapies, Michaela is passionate about helping people, after spending 20 years as a clinical nurse before moving into counselling. 

“I chose to step into that field so I could work more one-on-one with people to improve their mental health and overall wellbeing; to help people get to a place where they feel like they can do life well, rather than just treading water and surviving,” Michaela said.

Home visitations, telehealth, phone conversations and in-person sessions are all catered for, with no referral necessary, making it easy for people to reach out.

“It’s very common to see people in distress, where I help people with depression, anxiety, mental illness and marriage or personal crisis,” Michaela said.

“But I am also seeing more people who are interested in the longevity of mental health. They are choosing counselling as a source of self-care so they have the tools and strategies available to them now, when they are well, so that when they do have stress or mental health issues they are actually able to apply the strategies they have already developed.”
