There are so many counsellors and coaches out there.
Why contact me?
I am glad you asked.
I ask powerful questions to get you reflecting, thinking and moving in the right direction. I provide useful insights by translating evidence-based research into practical tools that you can access in a meaningful way.
I incorporate neuroscience with psychology, along with theories of human development to support my clients. I integrate culturally sensitive and anti-racist lenses into my practice. I am a masterful listener and ask thought-provoking questions that make you pause and reflect. I challenge and push my clients, but do so in a safe and nurturing way. And let’s be honest, if we have some fun along the way, that’s a bonus!
Most importantly, the proof is in the pudding. I have yet to have a client tell me they didn’t get what they were looking for when they found me. Now that’s powerful. I am not a magician, nor do I claim to have all the answers. However, what I can promise is that you will leave my sessions feeling inspired, with a meaningful plan and hope for a better future.
