Working with a clinical counsellor can be a transformational experience and should be seriously considered if you find yourself feeling:

  • It’s time to take a fresh look at my life, my potential, and my goals.

  • It’s time to move on from past hurts and habits that have held me back from realizing my potential.

  • I will no longer allow mood issues, trauma, shame, and/or fear to define my life.

  • My emotions and/or behaviours are out of control...

  • I am worthy of love and fulfilling relationships and am willing to make the changes needed to realize these things in my life.

  • My child needs help to learn how to better navigate his or her emotions, behaviours, and/or relationships.

  • My anxiety and/or depression has become unmanageable and I need help.

  • I will no longer allow these Phobias to dominate my life.


  • I haven’t been myself since that traumatic experience.

  • It's time to deal with the childhood abuse I survived.


  • It’s time to figure out my values and purpose in this life - and live accordingly. 


  • I need help to break free from the slavery of addiction/s.

  • I need insight and strategies to deal with my past and how it is influencing my present.
