About me and my therapy practice

Are you feeling sad? Do you have feelings of dread and fear? Do you believe life is so full of doom and gloom right now? If yes, I can only imagine how your feeling especially during covid lockdown. Maybe your feeling ever fearful than before? Do you feel you’re not coping well with isolation? Are you worried about the uncertainty of your future? If yes, I can only image how you are feeling.

These are critical times that we live in. It’s harder when alone and isolated and have no one to talk to, this can lead you feeling depressed. Do you find it hard to talk to someone? It’s ok! it doesn’t have to be like that. I really want to hear from you, I care about your wellbeing.

If you feel you can’t talk to family or a friend, then call me. My name is Lurlene, I am a qualified Counsellor, I will use my skills tailored to your unique experience. I will listen attentively in a non-judgemental way, to guide you to make sense of what is going on for you. I will ensure that all information are kept confidential under lock and key.
