Life is full of unexpected twists and turns. At some points, we can all experience difficult times and need help and support to guide us through. Experiences that have caused pain, anxiety, grief, loss, or shame can feel overpowering if left unrecognised. I believe strongly in each persons ability to grow, and overcome these obstacles in life. Having the right confidential, caring, non-judgemental person to share your stories with is the first step to breaking the chains that bind - making way for a renewed life of peace, hope and joy. I provide compassionate, confidential, and insightful counselling to individuals and couples in the areas of: Anxiety Depression Loss & Grief Stress Self-Esteem Couples & Relationships Life Transitions Coaching
