Sometimes in life we are at a place where we are looking to understand more of ourselves and what is going on in our lives - from the relationships we find ourselves in, to the cycles that we might get stuck in. From anxiety, depression , grief, trauma, life stress, big transitions; my job is to offer a space for you to feel safe and heard so the unpacking and understanding can begin. It is only when we can uncover and understand the root of the problem that profound coping and healing can really begin. If you are looking to understand yourself on a deeper level and take control of the things that are hurting you, I can help.

Depression Counsellors
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
