My Approach

Life can feel so difficult as we try to navigate our way through all our concerns problems or worries. A conversation where we feel validated can really help you to feel less burdened and less alone. Eventually, our conversations together may create the space to consider circumstances and situations in other ways. Helping empower you to respond and think differently.
It can be helpful to think of counselling or therapy as layers. Sometimes it feels enough to explore the just the top layer of ourselves or, we may be curious to go a little deeper; this is always a personal choice and maybe not always known in the beginning.
Counselling can help to understand and make sense of situations and/or experience’s, why they keep happening to us or within our relationships. Knowing ourselves a little more can provide a deeper insight, and it’s this awareness and understanding can leave us feeling freer to embrace our future.
