Depression, fear and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we may experience at some point in our lives. Through counselling and treatment, I work with you to recover the motivation, perspective, and joy that you once had in your life.
Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger long after traumatic events. I work with you to help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of grief and healing.
Addiction is more than a physical dependence on a substance or activity. Being able to break the habit of any addiction is an amazing achievement. Be proud of what you have achieved and thank your Self for being here seeking counselling to maintain sobriety. Counselling can help you understand what led to your addictions, escape cravings and learn to manage stress, especially sudden life stresses, social and environmental triggers, and other issues that can lead to relapse.
Counselling more than addressing suffering, it is also about promoting mental health and wellness. We accomplish this through self-exploration, empowerment and personal growth. One cannot relive the past, nor can we live our lives always in the future. When we take each moment as we are in it, we free ourselves from worry and fear, present to experience peace.

Why do we call our price list an investment instead of a cost? By definition, cost is just an expenditure of money, time, or resources while an investment is an expenditure that is sent out because it has the possibility of a return. We say investment instead of cost because you are not simply expending resources, you are investing in yourself, your health and wellbeing.

Psychological & Spiritual Guidance with the Enneagram
The Enneagram is an ancient blueprint for understanding life. When viewed from a psychological perspective, the Enneagram can reveal our inherent patterns regarding our temperament, values, defence mechanisms, and motivational drives. Understanding our position in the Enneagram helps us gain insight regarding our thought processes and can begin to dissolve these patterns that no longer serve us. The typology of the nine interconnected personality types gives insight into the human psyche, helping us move from the relative dimension of personality to the transcendental understanding of our Essence.
Mindfulness Meditation helps to promote mental, emotional, psychological, physical, and spiritual wellbeing. Mindfulness practices aim to increase our awareness of the present moment with a sense of acceptance without judgment. Mindfulness practices address emotional challenges, physical pain and relationship difficulties, bringing compassion, forgiveness, loving-kindness and joy to our body, heart, mind and community. Mindfulness Meditation helps us to clear the blocks that form in our thinking and our energy. Through our mindfulness sessions, clients learn to become aware of their defence mechanisms and how their practice of fitting and labelling limit their awareness and experiences in the world. Mindfulness practices move us from a place of fear, disconnection and emotional unrest to a place of congruence, inner peace, and authenticity.
