Welcome to my practice of Mindfulness Based Counselling. If you stop and ask “Where is my mind now?” the likelihood is high that you will discover you are either thinking of the past or contemplating the future. Relentless pondering of matters in the past, or worrying about the future, can leave us feeling fatigued, stressed, anxious, confused or depressed. It can result in unhealthy ways of coping and deplete our sense of joy. This pattern of thinking develops over our lifetime and by the time we are adults it is happening automatically outside our awareness. We can learn how to overcome this automatic-pilot way of being.

I assist a wide range of clients navigating challenges such as stress, anxiety, depression, grief and loss, life transitions, and relationship issues. My work with clients often involves the development of skills in emotional awareness and regulation, self-compassion and mindfulness, empathy and emotional validation, or intra- and inter-personal conflict resolution. I also support clients in their goals toward behaviour change, personal growth, and career exploration. As a therapist, I work from a perspective that recognizes the shared human needs within all of us, as well as the uniqueness of each individual's personal story.

At times life can become complicated by stress and adversity which is difficult to navigate on our own. My counselling philosophy is grounded in the knowledge that everyone has strengths and resources that can help them thrive and all of us need genuine caring relationships to live our best lives. Unfortunately, the challenges in our lives can cause us to lose sight of our strengths and strain key relationships leaving us feeling lost, confused and overwhelmed. At these times, counselling can help to explore these thoughts and feelings, identify meaningful solutions and restore hope and overall resilience.
