Counselling Services

A problem shared is a problem solved

Whether your relationship has hit a rough patch, or you’re struggling with depression or any other issues are impacting your life, talking to a professionally qualified counselor can help.

Asking for help, whether this is addiction counseling, relationship therapy, coaching to deal with stress at work, or something else, isn’t easy for many successful people. However, talking with someone objective is often what you need to gain a fresh perspective, overcome obstacles, heal wounds and expand your life. 

As a qualified counselor and holistic therapist, I know that very often integrative talk-therapy which draws on an eclectic range of techniques such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT) and other modalities, including creative and art-based techniques can be extremely effective. Plus therapy needn’t be gloomy. A lot of healthy healing can be achieved using playfulness and fun. Personally and professionally I believe in magic and the power of beauty, joy, love, purpose, and creativity to transform peoples’ lives.

Below are just a few of the many areas where counseling can provide guidance and support:

  • Career Counselling to help resolve career-related issues such as stress, role-conflict, performance issues, dissatisfaction, or boredom
  • Personal Counselling to provide early solution-focused intervention before problems escalate. A holistic approach to resolving many personal issues including relationships, finances, physical and emotional wellbeing, stress, grief, conflict, depression, anxiety, lack of self-esteem.
  • Grief Counseling to help you cope during times of extreme personal hurt and loss.
  • Life coaching to provide help people who don’t need in-depth counseling.  People don’t need to have a problem to seek the services of a life coach, although some people do. More often than not people are just feeling stuck and need someone objective and supportive to spur them on. Life coaching is solutions-focused, and rather than dwell on the past, focuses on where a person is now, where they want to be and the steps and changes necessary to get them there.
