About Me

Hello and welcome to my profile

First I would like to say that if you are struggling to maintain a balance in your life, but the overwhelming feelings are too much to handle, or cope with,  then you are  on the right path, because therapy can help you take control of your life, can help you find the right balance that fits you best, it can help you  discover and  unleash your superpowers, and you will have the support and guidance to face your fears, understand and manage your emotions, and so much more. 

I am a fully qualified Therapeutic Counsellor, I work within an integrative approach in counselling and psychotherapy  and my dream is to empower you to become your best version of yourself. 

If you want to  talk and be heard and understood, I am here for you,  and I will offer you a confidential confidential, nonjudgmental, trustworthy, empathetic, respectful, caring, supportive, and professional space, which will allow you to explore anything that is holding you back or stops you from having the life you need. 

I truly believe that therapy can provide you with the right tools and skills to help build your confidence, and once you start believing in yourself things will fall into place.  

Please feel free to contact me for more information or questions that you may have.

Thank you for taking the first step for better mental health.
