Why Counselling

It can help with

"Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness...

Will we discover the infinite power of our light"
                      -Brene Brown

Depression affects people of all different ages, races and cultures.  It is a common and serious disorder that can affect how you think, feel, and behave.  It is also highly treatable.


Anxiety is the most common mental health complaint from people from all walks of life.  Anxiety becomes a problem  when it manifests itself in unexpected and unhelpful ways that seriously impact your life.

Stress Management

Stress can occur when you perceive that an activity or situation is beyond the scope of your capabilities.  Some stress can motivate us, however, chronic stress can interfere with our day to day functioning as well as our physical health.

Couples Counselling

Couples counselling can help you build on your relationship strengths and build new healthier ways of interacting with your significant other. Rebuild trust, learn new ways of communicating and dealing with conflict, deepen your connection, and strengthen your friendship and intimacy.


Trauma is a subjective experience and it includes anything that an individual finds extremely disturbing, upsetting and overwhelms their current coping resources.  Therefore big "T" trauma such as major distressing events and small "t" trauma such as smaller distressing events can both interfere with an individuals ability to cope.


Self-compassion means we offer ourselves the same compassion and understanding that we do our friends and loved ones.  Accepting ourselves as fallible and human can help us learn to become compassionate and empathic with ourselves in the face of perceived  inadequacy and failure. Which in turn can help us step outside our comfort zone and increase our self-confidence.
