COUNSELLING

Struggling with anxiety, depression, stress, loss, life transitions or other life challenges? Take the first step towards healing through evidence-based strategies, and the deep work of core emotional processing.  Our counselling services use a  therapeutic approach  that is person-centered, warm, compassionate, and uniquely understanding, including a variety of clinical modalities.

COUPLES COUNSELLING

Bumps in the road are to be expected and are normal within any relationship, but getting through them on your own can at times be difficult. Couples Counselling can dramatically improve your relationship in ways that you might not expect.

Counselling offers your relationship an unbiased view and helps you establish your own set of values and boundaries as a unified couple. Seeing a counsellor to establish your boundaries with one another can offer you a mediator on topics that can be sensitive to bring up, reducing fights regarding these issues. Our counsellors will help you gain skills that will give you the tools to eventually work through issues on your own.

I believe that at the very center of all people, tucked deeply away with our fears, traumas and insecurities are the answers to that which we are seeking. When we are able to go within ourselves and really connect with the inner guidance and wisdom we have, we birth our resilience, strength, gifts and our healing. I have so much compassion and empathy for those who are in the depth of suffering and have found the courage to walk through the darkness and into the realms of deep self-discovery and I am absolutely honoured to be able to provide this sacred space for my clients as I walk alongside them in this journey to wellness.
