I am a specialist Counsellor with 12+ years' experience supporting women in community and therapeutic settings. Women are incredible connectors that give so much of themselves to workplaces, families and community. Sometimes this can result in feeling disconnected from themselves. Women also experience relationship breakdowns, parenting challenges, loss, abuse and traumatic experiences. These can really rock the foundation of who we are. I can help you make sense of what has happened and how to move forward with who you are becoming and what you want for your life.
I believe that each of us know what's most important to us, what we need and what we struggle with. My job is to help you reconnect with your own unique inner guidance to heal and move forward. You know your life better than anyone. I help you rediscover what sits beneath the cycle of thoughts, and we build tools to connect to your calm inner knowing.
Although it can be hard to take the first step, it's also what's needed to make change. Let's connect and chat about where you are up to and what you might want from counselling and we can take it from there.
