Emotionally speaking. Understanding your life and how you can live it better


Return to top

Counselling means not doing this alone.

When life is difficult counselling will help you:
  • find a safe space to talk about your thoughts and feelings,
  • meet someone who listens,
  • explore how you came to be this way,
  • identify the things you like and dislike about yourself,
  • understand what you want to do differently, and
  • work out how to make the changes you want to make.

I work with both individuals and couples.

Some sessions may be available at a reduced rate. Please contact me for details.

Sessions cancelled with 7 days or less notice will still incur the fee.
