Do you need someone safe, empathetic and genuine to speak with? Someone who is not in your usual circle, so can offer a different outlook on problems? Someone who understands life is not easy and has many challenges along the way? I enjoy working with people who have either long term or short term challenges or goals, working towards a better understanding of themselves. Perhaps life has got you down, and you are not sure where to start in your journey of reclaiming life. That is when you may find a counsellor is someone to help you through these challenges - to support you, be honest with, and to help you reach your goals.

I help people rediscover their strengths, passions and purpose and find meaning, joy and happiness in their lives. Most of us experience a moment in our lives where we stop and take stock. This may come as a result of a big shock, the loss of a loved one, a relationship, a job or some other trauma that shakes us to our very core. Or it may just be a gnawing sense that there is something more to life than what you are currently experiencing. These big shocks or subtle gnawings can start to erode our sense of happiness and fulfilment. We may experience depression, sadness, a sense of isolation, confusion or feel deeply overwhelmed.

My ideal client is interested in being challenged to become more self aware in order to enhance their overall wellbeing (physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually and relationally). They are passionate about connecting with themselves and others in a compassionate, non-judgmental manner to enhance compassion for themselves and others. My job would be to help them overcome obstacles such as unhelpful thinking styles in order to break cycles of addiction, anxiety and depression. At times, they may need to consider relationship therapy with their partners and family members which would enrich themselves and their family members.

I help women who are stressed, anxious, and questioning what they want in life to get clear on their purpose, direction and next steps. They generally want and need help to transform their personal life - particularly in the area of health, wellbeing, and relationships. They may be overwhelmed with personal, family and professional commitments and may feel depleted, burnout, or experiencing physical pain. Their goals are often (but not limited to) prioritizing time and selfcare for themselves, working on self-esteem/confidence/worth so that they can feel more empowered, and have agency over their personal and social life.

You’re here because you want to transform. You want to be happy and live free from fear, uncertainty, stress, anxiety and depression. You don’t want to suffer anymore. You want a new way of living that is energising and fulfilling. You want to let go of what is holding you back and be your most authentic and compassionate self. It takes tremendous courage to let go of the past and imagine a different future for yourself. So, who am I and how can I help?

I understand the value of needing a space that provides the freedom to say how it is and receive validation of what that person is experiencing. Working from a strength-based solution-focused approach, it is my hope to bring this privacy of thought into a therapeutic context to unravel and explore truth and feeling. I want each client that walks into my room to experience a relaxed atmosphere where they can be real. While we all understand that help begins with ourselves, stepping into a counselling room is that very thing that will bring about that very process.

I see individuals and couples for a wide number of needs. I generally see clients above the age of 18. People come to counselling because they want changes in their lives and are unsure how to make those changes. Often they are stuck in stories or habits of the past , or traumas have locked them into unhelpful ways of being. People use therapy to achieve those goals and then move on.
