One-on-one counselling is ideal for support, insight into life journeys, empowerment, clarity, resolution from a break up, healing the heart, balance for the mind, and facilitating your inner wisdom.
Counselling and Compassionate Listening
A therapeutic counselling session starts with compassionate listening. I will seek first to listen, feel, and fully understand your concerns holistically, body, mind and soul.
With my background in psychology, seasoned with real-life experience I will always maintain a client-focused approach. In this way we can establish a level of comfort and trust with each other.
Positive thinking and healing are core elements of cognitive therapy. Acceptance is another facet; all these aspects help move toward positive transformation through communication therapy. View Choices
Counselling is a ‘process’ of growth and feedback. You will be free to contact me anytime to follow-up and make the positive changes in your life with my guidance and support.
Personal counselling is suitable for everyone at all times, whether you find yourself in physical pain, suffering from trauma or needing a relief from everyday stress. Counselling treatment not only improves your general well-being, but regular treatments can also help keep you free from stress and illness.
