About Linda Mitten

I am a professional counsellor registered with the Australian Counselling Association with qualifications in Counselling, Social Work and Disability Support.

I draw on years of experience working with The Salvation Army, Kildonan Uniting Care and the University sector to provide a safe, welcoming and confidential space for people to explore personal issues, find clarity to resolve them, and move forward with their lives.

I have carefully-structured counselling services to help find new and effective ways to cope with life’s challenges, such as:

  • Anger

  • Anxiety

  • Stress

  • Grief and loss

  • Depression

  • Perfectionism

  • Emotional regulation

  • Separation

  • Life-stage transition

My range of evidence-based techniques help find alternative perspectives to analyse problems and devise positive strategies to cope with them, so that life regains clear purpose and meaning.

Counselling Services

If you or anyone you know is scared, sad, stressed or stuck, I offer a warm, welcoming and confidential space to help resolve your difficulties and stresses, find clarity so you can move forward in life.

Individual Adult Counselling

In-Person Counselling available at my clinic at 42 Kennedy Dr in Port Macquarie (subject to Covid-19 restrictions).

Tele-Counselling via Zoom.

Counselling sessions are available on Thursdays from 9 am to 5 pm and on Fridays from 9 am to 12 noon.

Employee Assistance Program (EAP)

My EAP goal is to improve workplace harmony and productivity for long term business gains.

I tailor EAP counselling services specifically for Medium to Large businesses of more than 20 employees and have extensive experience in providing EAP services to many local organisations.

Under the scheme, employers fund an agreed number of confidential counselling sessions for staff (usually 3-6 sessions) that are held off-site. If an employee requires more specialised or on-going support, I can make an appropriate referral, at the employee’s expense.

There are no up-front or ongoing costs. Clients are invoiced only for services used. (subject to cancellation policy)

NDIS Counselling

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides funding to assist people with disabilities to access the supports they need to achieve their goals, increase participation, and improve well-being.

At Smooth Sailing Counselling, I provide individual adult counselling for Self-managed and Plan-managed participants who are NDIS-funded for Capacity Building: Improved Daily Living.

Counselling services are provided for people with a disability to help them achieve an optimum state of personal, emotional and social well-being in a safe, supportive environment.


If you believe I can help you or someone you know find clarity, it would be good to chat about it. Please contact me on 0478 917 540 or via my website -
