Do any of the following situations apply to you?

  • Are you facing circumstances that are causing stress, anxiety, or frustration?

  • Are you generally dissatisfied with your life but can’t figure out why?

  • Are you challenged by family issues such as marriage, parenting or financial pressures?

  • Do you often find yourself feeling angry, sad, afraid, out of control, burned out, tired, or depressed?

  • Do you want to change the way you behave or think, but find it hard to follow through?

  • Are you going through a difficult life transition, such as the death of a loved one, job loss or a serious illness?

  • Do you find it hard to overcome past hurts or painful memories?

  • Have you experienced a traumatic event such as sexual abuse, emotional abuse, domestic violence or other injury?

  • Are you struggling to break habits involving alcohol, food, drugs, sex or gambling?


If you answered "yes" to one or more of the above questions, then counselling can be an opportunity for you to overcome barriers that are keeping you from being the person you want to be and living a more meaningful life.  Using a number of treatment approaches we can help you manage your concerns in effective ways that promote emotional health and wellness, fulfilling relationships and increased life satisfaction.

Our approach works quickly and leads to changes that last - normally our clients experience noticeable results within 4-8 sessions. 

Counselling can help you... 


  • Acknowledge and work through difficult thoughts and emotions

  • Develop personal insight and knowledge through interactive conversation

  • Develop unused resources and leverage personal strengths

  • Manage present and future challenges creatively and effectively

  • Connect with your values and reach your goals

  • Enjoy more satisfying relationships

  • Experience a greater sense of well-being and increased life satisfaction

  • Shape a better future for you and for those around you

We are committed to providing effective treatment that makes a noticeable difference to you - now and for the future.
