At the centre of your being, you have the answer.
You know who you are and you know what you want. Lao Tzu
Living well means learning to deal wisely with the changes and challenges that come our way. There are times when life’s difficulties cause us to explore getting help. We have not failed. We simply need new tools and skills to guide us along a better path – we are being called to grow and do things differently! Successful change can be difficult work but life’s obstacles offer us powerful springboards to personal transformation. Through our difficulties we grow in ways we may never have thought possible. This is part of our journey as human beings.
As a Registered Psychotherapist, I support clients with depression & anxiety, relationship & parenting challenges, self-esteem & body image, health issues, grief & loss, workplace stress, life transitions and women’s issues, including partner betrayal. I offer supportive & client-centered counselling, based on your goals and needs, to help navigate difficult times and find hope & strength in your healing.
Maybe you recognize yourself in one of the following scenarios:
Are you lacking the energy to fully engage with your life and experience the joy around you? Most of us lead very busy lives. This reality makes it challenging to create time for ourselves and our health related goals. By learning to practice self-care and by focusing on what brings meaning to our lives, we lay important foundations for personal growth and change.
Are feelings of depression and/or anxiety becoming barriers to living the life you want to live? I use mindfulness-based counselling to help clients develop new skills & tools to work with the challenging emotions which are often at the root of depression and anxiety. By creating more helpful thinking & behaviour patterns and increasing resiliency, powerful shifts can take place.
Are your relationships suffering as you struggle to maintain a positive outlook on your life or work situation? I understand the challenges in building healthy relationships and work from a place of trust, respect and positive communication allowing clients the opportunity to understand their feelings and learn to connect more deeply with others. As you become more self-aware and gain new skills to work with your personal situation, you are on the path to positive change.
Between stimulus and response, there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom Viktor E. Frankl
