Counsellor & Mediator
I love assisting people to enhance their lives and relationships, resolve conflicts and reach solutions that work. I believe that we all have the capacity for personal growth and change.
My approach focuses on empathetic listening, solutions, and moving issues and relationships forward. I have a proven track record in assisting people to collaborate and to effect positive change in their lives and relationships. I value your privacy and all aspects of the sessions are confidential.
