Are you feeling sad, angry or overwhelmed by circumstances in your life or in your personal relationships? Everyone experiences difficult and painful times, but there is no need to go through these alone. If you are in a challenging situation or simply feel that life has lost its meaning, then counselling can support you make the changes needed for a happier, more purposeful and satisfying life. You can, with the right help, move past obstacles to create a better future.

Having experienced and learned from significant challenges in my own life, I feel I have developed a deep understanding and empathy for the many difficulties that we all encounter at times. This valuable life experience, coupled with my professional training, enables me to help you navigate through whatever is blocking you from living the life that you want.

I am passionate about the work I do in helping people like you achieve their personal goals. I provide a safe and nurturing space and can help you start to change your relationship with yourself and examine thinking and behaviours that might be working against your true potential.
