I have experience and skills in working with many issues including anxiety, trauma, low self-esteem and relationships concerns.
Although anyone may experience worry as a normal response to living, anxiety, and depression are persistent and you may already have a diagnosis from a health-care provider. Counselling helps you to find ways of coping, strategies to help you overcome and reduce your anxiety and improve how you feel, and inevitably you also begin to make better decisions, you're able to live your life more comfortably. Who doesn’t want that?
In couples counselling there is a recognition that relationships are a lot more difficult and take a lot more energy than any of us like to admit. With the honeymoon period a distant memory there can be a whole host of issues arising from our ideas or expectations of how things should be. This can be a confusing time as we become so caught up in what we believe that it becomes more and more uncomfortable to make ourselves understood or heard, so we stop trying, and we stop communicating in a healthy way! Counselling gives couples some distance and some space in order to confront what their issues really are! Working towards communication, connection, and mutual respect, the process of therapy allows for growth and repair.
So, no matter what difficulties you are facing right now; relationship issues, anxiety, depression, work-related stress, or something else, I will help you find your way through this difficult time using a variety of approaches and skills to help you achieve some resolution.

“beginnings are scary, endings are usually sad, but it’s the middle that sees the important stuff and counts the most. Try to remember that when you find yourself at a new beginning. Just give hope a chance to float up. And it will…” quote from the film Hope Floats
