About me and my therapy practice

I work in a person-centred way online or walking and talking. I have a background in education and business. My focus is to make you feel fully heard. I am a coach in training too.

I specialise in supporting people going through a major life transition. I work with the LGBTQIA community.

I also offer counselling in French.

We can speak on the phone, on WhatsApp or Zoom.

If you prefer a face to face option I offer walk and talk counselling. We go for a walk in an agreed location and talk on the way, Walking is proven to decrease negative thoughts. and boost feel good hormones.

Practice description

In difficult circumstances we try to hold it together, but sometimes it is not possible anymore. Maybe you are feeling stuck in a bad place, unable to find purpose, lacking enjoyment. Maybe you have developed unhelpful ways of coping. Managing change and life transitions successfully is difficult. Do not be discouraged, I can give you a helping hand!

There is hope. In a safe and confidential space, we can explore together what is holding you back. I offer to truly listen and a genuine human connection. 

Reaching out is your first step to move forward with your life. This is your chance to be heard and seen. Contact me to inquire about my Covid-safe practice.
