Mackay and Whitsunday Life
After years of contract work, Robyn Geiger focused her expertise into Phoenix Counselling, a small business allowing her flexibility while doing work she's passionate about.
Phoenix Counselling celebrated its first birthday with a morning tea at Bohemian Elyse earlier this week, where Robyn also launched a new logo, inviting those who have supported Robyn over the last 12 months.
"I decided to go back into private practise and set up in the city heart, which is an excellent place. It's been fabulous,” Robyn said.
"I've built a case load of clients that are regular; you become the family counsellor.
"It's a pretty full case load for one counsellor but that's what I intended when I set it up a year ago."
Robyn has experience working with mothers, parents, people with disabilities, youth and more.
“I've always been a people person and wanted to be in an industry where I was able to help people, so Phoenix Counselling gives me an opportunity to still help all those people in a more formal way,” she said.
“I'm also a registered Christian counsellor and that's very dear to my heart.”
Robyn has also diversified her case load, recently taking on a number of clients through the Employee Assistance Professional Association Of Australasia, supporting local businesses and their employees.
Mackay through and through, Robyn has always been involved in the community whether it's through the Endeavour Foundation, country music associations and fundraising throughout the community.
“My profile in the community is important to me and I think as long as I'm visible and honest, I'll have a lot of success,” she said.
