Individual Counselling

My Philosophy for Individual Counselling:

I do not view a client who comes to me as “broken” or in need of “fixing.” I prefer to see individual counselling as a collaborative effort between me and you, to help you understand and heal and grow as a person. I am always honoured to be part of that journey with you…

How I work:

I work in a very personal and non-clinical way. The therapeutic counselling relationship with my clients is at the core of all the work I do. I use humour, compassion and sharing life experiences, coupled with challenging and “calling it like it is”. You won't get "so how does that make you feel" session after session. Understanding, compassion, empathy and proactive change is my goal for clients.

We Focus on what needs to change, specifically how to do that and then give you the awareness and the tools to carry out those changes moving forward in life.
