My approach to counselling is based on respect for you the client. I do my very best to ensure that you feel safe, in control of the process, heard, and understood. My job is to get to know your values and how you think, feel, and act, in order to support you to either strengthen or change, aspects of yourself and your life. We will collaborate to establish meaningful and achievable goals focused on creating the life you want.
My background in nursing and counselling, as well as my life experience with mindfulness and meditation practice, helps me be empathetic and present with your experience and your pain, whatever form it might take, I can help you let go of the weight of the past you have been carrying, and move forward into a present that is lighter, happier and more peaceful
Reaching out and asking for help is a huge step and one that most do not take lightly. Many people are suffering or confused when this point is reached. You can expect me to be aware of this, to be empathetic and to treat you with respect. You can expect to be heard, to be understood, and to not be judged.
