As a counsellor, my desire is to help people by providing a safe environment where they can express their emotions, thoughts, fears, and where they can be open about how they feel. Seeing my clients improving their issues, reaching their goals, overcoming their challenges and obstacles are the most fulfilling things for me as a counsellor. I have lived in different countries and witnessed different backgrounds. My experience counselling people with different issues and conditions taught me how to understand what my clients actually need so I can help as best as I can. Everyone has a unique story and I hope I can create a safe spa

Child Centred Play Therapy can be a really impactful way of helping your child to work through inner feelings, and process what might be challenging for them. It is often really tough for children to express what's going on for them using words, and this is often why they find ways to communicate with us through their behaviour. This can be a little scary and overwhelming for us as caregivers, who may just be needing things to become a little easier at home. Through this journey, I work collaboratively and authentically with you, your child and other significant persons in your world, drawing on your wisdom, love, and knowledge.

My clients often are looking for ways to better handle the challenges of daily living. They may be feeling these challenges are insurmountable or that they are fundamentally inadequate to be able to cope. They might not feel that they have a good understanding of who they truly are, what it is they want out of life, or what they have to offer others. They might also struggle to draw on the resources around them and make the most of their personal relationships. They may struggle to find the voice inside to reassure them that, as hard as things can feel, it will all be okay.
