Individual Counselling

Everybody experiences problems or difficulties at some point in their life, whether it is from an event that has recently occurred or that had been present for years. These events can cause distress and can affect the quality of life. Sometimes, individuals seek help because they feel like things have gotten out-of-hand and the usual methods of coping, or sources of support no longer work for them. Other individuals can feel like they are growing and changing, and benefit from having someone accompany them in their journey as they explore parts of themselves. 

I provide compassionate support for the following areas:
  • Low self-confidence/esteem 
  • Depression, discouragement and hopelessness
  • Stress and anxiety management 
  • Assertiveness skills and boundaries 
  • Adjusting to change/life transitions 
  • Body image worries
  • Disordered eating 
  • Grief and loss
  • Family of origin issues (unresolved issues related to upbringing)
  • Dysfunctional family dynamics
*Issues are often interconnected and can overlap with each other.
