The feedback I often hear from clients I work with is that I am really ‘grounded, knowledgeable, and comfortable to talk to’. I will provide a safe and supportive space that is free of judgment in order to help you explore concerns that matter to you.
Sometimes people arrive at counselling not knowing what they are looking for. I will bring my expertise to provide an assessment and develop interventions to provide you with the skills and confidence to help you make meaningful changes in your life.
