I believe that personal health is not only the state of the body but our minds, emotions, spirituality and thoughts as well. To help ourselves, we need to feel safe and secure in order to allow ourselves to become vulnerable and therefore able to work through the discomfort of change. There are times when life gets overwhelming as it's part of the human experience. As a result of this, you may feel stressed, anxious, depressed, angry, and your usual coping strategies aren't working. It is helpful to get support from someone who can provide a safe space for you to explore the thoughts and behaviours that are causing you pain.

Hi, I'm Anne and I recently completed my MA in Counselling and Spirituality at St Paul University. I bring compassion, empathy and life experience to my practice, and I use a client-centred approach that recognizes and values your individuality. My practice incorporates elements of an attachment-based perspective, Internal Family Systems, Emotion Focused Therapy, narrative theory and CBT. However, my main priority is for you to feel heard and understood; and for us to work together on goals that are tailored to your specific needs and experiences.

Accepting New Clients - Are you feeling stunted in your growth journey? As someone who as struggled with their own anxiety, emotions, and sexuality, I know how challenging therapy can be sometimes. The pressure, the expectations, the fit; sometimes it can all be too much when all you want to do is feel a bit lighter. Whether it's working through a break up, coming out to your peers, adjusting to a new job, or just struggling with the day-to-day emotions or tasks, there is room to grow. I believe in finding strengths and learning to utilize them to face challenges, gain self-compassion skills, and enhance personal well-being.

Perhaps you're here because you're feeling stuck and unsure, navigating a significant life event like trauma or illness or struggling with a sense of loss and searching for meaning. It could be that you're seeking support due to the overwhelming weight of stress, burnout, or anxiety. Maybe you're feeling alone and experiencing unresolved issues with a loved one or simply not feeling like yourself. You're yearning for change and believe what I believe – that things can get better. After all, we face challenges and sometimes lose our way - it's a natural part of being human. The magic lies in how we find our way back.

Female Counsellors

Does it matter what gender my therapist is?

In general, this is not an important factor, as there is no relationship between a therapist’s gender and their efficacy. Some clients, however, prefer to see therapists of a particular gender, whether due to their own past experiences with men and women, or ingrained beliefs about how people of different genders think and behave. Exploring the roots of such preferences and considering what one wants to address in therapy can help someone determine whether their therapist’s gender truly matters to them.

Should I see a female therapist?

Many people—not just women—prefer to see a female therapist, either because they believe that a woman will be able to relate to their specific challenges (for example, sexism in the workplace) or because they imagine feeling more comfortable disclosing sensitive information to a woman. Such beliefs may not turn out to be accurate, however, and adhering too rigidly to a gender preference can at times hinder a client from finding the best therapeutic match.

Do therapists get specific training to help with women’s concerns?

Therapists are trained to provide care to clients of any gender. However, some therapists—both men and women—may pursue additional training in feminist therapy, gender-specific issues, or women’s mental health. Female clients may wish to ask prospective therapists whether they have received specific training in the client’s primary area(s) of concern, or whether they have worked extensively with women on issues similar to their own.

How can I inquire about a therapist’s experience in treating women?

It’s OK—even encouraged!—to ask a therapist directly whether and how often they have treated women in the past, or whether they have treated women dealing with the client’s most prominent concern(s). Competent therapists will be happy to share their educational background, preferred treatment modalities, and prior client experience to help an individual find the therapist best suited to their needs.
