I am now offering online counselling exclusively. Many clients have come to prefer online sessions because they:
don't live locally but still want to work with me
have childcare challenges
don't want to deal with traffic or public transportation
are busy and want to squeeze in sessions on a tight schedule
prefer to stay home in their pajamas.
are limiting their social exposure due to COVID-19.
Before your session I will send you a link to a secure online platform. At your appointment time simply click the link on your phone, tablet or computer.
My approach to counselling is flexible and holistic. As a Social Worker, I have a strong emphasis on how people relate to the world around them, with all of it's beauty and challenges. As a counsellor, I hold a few core values and beliefs, which show up in counselling sessions in a variety of ways:
Change happens in the context of a warm, trusting, respectful and collaborative relationship.
When we own our story, we own our choices and our lives. Examining our story, and how we relate to it, changes how we interpret our world-for the better.
When we know our true selves we can make decisions in line with our values and preferred ways of being. I ask gentle questions that encourage examination and greater self-knowledge.
Trauma changes how we experience the world. Together we can work on ways to navigate and manage the effects of past trauma in a safe, collaborative and respectful manner.
