Living Wisely

Counselling & Holistic Therapy

As a therapist, my role is to accompany you, and facilitate the time and space that you need to focus on you and your life. I cannot change your life for you, however, I can assist you to explore ways that you could increase calm, confidence, and compassion in your world.

All aspects of you are welcome here. This is a space for you as a whole human being, with all your feelings, thoughts, needs, secrets, gifts and dreams. You will not be judged. You will be totally respected.

I will shape a therapy experience that is fully adaptable and suited to your preferences, drawing from a wellspring of therapeutic approaches in which I'm trained and experienced. You will be empowered to lead your therapy, and lead your life.

Everyone needs extra support sometimes.
