We all can use someone in our corner. If you are looking for a counsellor right now, you are likely feeling overwhelmed and discouraged. If you could've fixed things already by yourself you would have. The truth is that we all have times when we need the support of others. It's my intention to be a partner in your healing. I know the importance of being heard and understood and feeling safe instead of being fixed, advised, or judged. Counselling is more than a place to vent, it is a space where we co-create change. I know from experience that the struggles you are experiencing hold a gift within them that really can power your transformation.
I have a particular interest in supporting people struggling with anxiety, high sensitivity, difficult life events, chronic pain, grief, loss and big changes in life (e.g., moving, relationship endings, deaths, beginning or ending school or work, identity development). I am also interested in brain retraining and self-healing.
I have been counselling for 12 years & know it takes courage to reach out for help. It can be hard to do something new. As C.S. Lewis says "You can't go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending." Feel free to book a free 20 min video or phone session with me to talk about how I can help with your change process.
Having a good fit with your counsellor is important. Reasons you might seek counselling with me:
You are a highly sensitive person.
You feel overwhelmed by anxiety and self-doubt too often.
You find yourself irritable with the important people in your life.
You are wanting to have stronger relationships (including your relationship with yourself).
You have lots of good ideas of what might help you feel better and feel frustrated with limited change or by feeling stuck.
You are struggling to figure yourself out.
You have lost a significant person/being in your life and feel stuck in the pain and grief of this loss.
You have a deep longing to be heard and understood and to understand yourself.
I offer video, phone and in-person counselling. Currently in person appointments are on Saturdays and on weekday evenings by request.
