Counselling for individuals
Working with clients to empower them to bring about healthy changes. As a counsellor I offer a place for clients to not feel judged, to be open and honest with themselves, to reflect back to the client parts of themselves, sometimes for the first time to be heard and valued.
I believe we all have the capacity to bring about change in our lives, to be able to become our best selves.
