Announcement icon I'm now holding sessions online. Offering walk therapy; if interested, message me for further information.


What's going on with you right now? What mental state are you in right now? How are you handling all the stresses of life and the rising cost of living? Do you think you won't be able to find your way out. I'm here to assist you in dealing with whatever is going on in your life right now. It can sometimes be beneficial to have an outsider who can suggest a different course of action. Life is far too short to spend battling the hand you were dealt. However, we all require assistance at some point, so let me assist you. I provide a free phone consultation of 15 minutes.
When we talk, we'll decide which of your problems requires the most attention, and then we'll work on it using some of the methods I know. Solution-focused therapy may be the best option if you're trying to find a solution to an issue. I frequently use the person-centred counselling approach with some of my clients.
Whatever your motivations, I can offer a welcoming environment where you can explore, learn, heal, and grow. My voice is kind, but it's also direct and valuable. In my opinion, a fresh understanding of your actions and thoughts can only come from consciousness and action.
