Counselling involves dialogue among participants to foster understanding, new insight, hope, resolve plus support for changing behaviours, relational patterns and/or emotional responses.
Finding your personal solutions and living a more meaningful life is possible.
I am experienced in supporting adolescents and adults through many challenges including anxiety, depression, addictive behaviours (substance use, gaming and internet addictions etc.) as well as the many complications that life throws our way.

Wellbeing is a journey and a naturopathy assessment aims to understand what is currently happening in your body systems. Symptoms are usually a sign our ability to maintain balance is overrun. Treatments are agreed on that gently encourage your body to be able to manage the source of the imbalances. Herbs and other health products along with diet and lifestyle are discussed.
Modern research is discovering links between anxiety, depression and physical health such as inflammation, gut health, nutritional deficiencies etc. See article by the great integrated psychiatrist Kelly Brogan.

Groups are an excellent opportunity to learn about our strengths and also the barriers that hold us back. The wisdom and support found in groups can enrich our life path in unexpected ways.

As a trained counsellor I have worked with adults and teens with many challenges including addiction, anxiety, depression, stress, anger issues and many other issues of human complexity. I have worked in government funded counselling services including as a clinical leader in a 'rehab'.
I have recently trained as a naturopath and I am excited about the potential of this approach to help both mental health and physical health issues. Naturopathy usually involves thorough assessment of the body systems and using natural health products, diet and lifestyle changes to address underlying causes of imbalance.
Providing the treatment approach that resonates with you is vital to enhancing your wellness.
