Do you feel stuck in an unhealthy place in your life? Are you feeling like you are just surviving rather than thriving or not reaching your full potential? If so, I believe with effective counselling you can unlock your potential and start to achieve the life you want to live. The most vital relationship we have is the one with ourselves, which is why I am passionate about helping individuals find their sense of self, which is often lost in the processes of life. I have supported individuals who have experienced loss, relationship issues, emotional challenges, identity concerns, self-harm, low self-esteem, Anxiety & Depression.
I create a collaborative space, to help unravel your personal journey & work towards goals to enhance well-being. I will empower you to develop life skills to overcome obstacles. We will work together to find resolutions to core issues and personal struggles. I have 10 years experience as working as a counsellor & mentor with adults, children & adolescents.
Please reach out for a free 15 minute conversation to see if counselling is for you. Life after counselling with myself will feel like you have greater peace of mind & enhanced wellbeing. You will grasp your sense of meaning & direction in life and will have a more positive relationship with yourself and those that are important to you.
