Counselling, Coaching & Psychotherapy

Counselling, Coaching and Psychotherapy



You may find your oh so busy lives and related demands lead you to be pre-occupied with any of worry, guilt, resentment, irritability, frustration, tiredness and exhaustion. You may also be resistant to seeking professional support perhaps viewing it as a sign of weakness or failure.  Albert Einstein suggested that "The thinking that got us here isn't the thinking that will get us out of here" (paraphrased).


I am focussed on supporting individuals, relationships and families challenged with:


  • Stress related anxiety, depression, anger , dependencies, enduring worry and overwhelm

  • Loss resulting from:

    • Divorce, relationship breakup, family crisis, parental separation from children

    • Job loss, retrenchment, financial loss and business failure

    • Death and grieving

  • Transitions requiring new approaches to life:

    • Partnerships, marriage, new relationships, new born arrivals, blending families

    • Relocation to or from another country

    • Career changes and direction

    • Adjusting to retirement

  • General life pressures:

    • Work-life balance

    • Family conflict

    • Financial strains

    • Long term unemployment



Counselling, coaching and psychotherapy are no longer confined to the provinces of temporary personal challenges and chronic mental illness.  Here is an excerpt from one of my clients who has worked extensively with me and was prompted to go public with her experience and write an article about it: .

  • “I finally understand that no one in this world has the power to make me feel anything. I create, promote and allow the feelings and behaviours that I want in my life and I give to myself the things that I want to experience...... Knowing that no one external can take that feeling away is liberating.”


This is an example of the benefits people share with me about my work with them. Beyond releasing burdens I assist you to build tools that sustain more understanding, joy, spontaneity, enthusiasm, loving and inner peace; a supportive pathway to better life choices.

In our work together you can claim back your life in ways that support you and the ones you love; a sense of renewal emerges no matter how challenging your situation seems; relationships are healed as you see them through new lenses; family dynamics transform creating deeper more loving connections notwithstanding the upsets, conflicts and dramas that have gone before. Life just gets better no matter your starting point.
