“Life is not how many times you fall down, it’s about how many times you get back up”. – Jaime Escalante
I know that taking the first step and coming for counselling takes courage. I create a professional environment where there is no judgement and you can feel comfortable to discuss any issue.

Counselling/Therapy Services

Every person's counselling needs or goals are very unique. It can be a goal to change or shift negative or unhelpful thoughts or change behaviour. We can also discuss various coping strategies or life skills. Sometimes it is just to soundboard with an objective person in a safe and confidential environment.

I strongly believe we have the answers within ourselves and that we sometimes just need some guidance.
