How I Work As a Counsellor
My Goal as a Therapist: Healing the Root Cause of Your Troubles
I want to help you to rise up and above your worries and fears to grab onto life with passion and joy. I help you overcome your concerns so that you become free from chronic stress and anxiety.
As your counsellor, I provide the tools and skills to help you come to trust yourself, your values, and to honour your calling to live life the way you were meant to live.
My Counselling Style
I am a warm, compassionate, and non-judgemental therapist. I will listen deeply to your concerns and offer insight with respect and empathy.
I employ a client-centred, holistic style of counselling where my focus is on helping you heal the root cause of your stress, anxiety or depression.
I help you focus on creating health in all areas of your life – emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually.
I treat each client as an individual who is doing the best they can at any given moment. My goal is to help you build your inner strength and resilience so you can live your life to the fullest.
Healing and Counselling Methods
The tools I use provide much more benefit than traditional talk therapy alone. These tools are known to help you get lasting relief from your symptoms.
HeartMath is a proven technology that is used to help people improve their health and performance. Its been shown to be highly effective at helping to reduce stress and to enhance and sustain positive emotions.
The HeartMath approach uses biofeedback tools which have been shown to increase coherence in heart rhythm patterns and increase synchronization and harmony among physiological systems that play a role in stress and anxiety. Ultimately, the HeartMath tools teach you how to control your stress and anxiety.
HeartMath tools not only reduce stress in the moment. They have been scientifically shown to significantly lower your body’s learned stress state. This leads to emotional resilience, increased energy, better focus, and a stronger immune system.
Mindfulness and Body Centred Awareness
Mindfulness is a scientifically proven, powerful counselling approach to help increase your awareness of stress and anxiety and to ultimately transform it.
I use several mindfulness approaches, including EFT Tapping to help you become more in tune with yourself and your needs so that you can create the best possible life for yourself.
Bach Flower Essences
You may have heard of the popular remedy called “Rescue Remedy” that helps calm your energy after a stressful event.
What you may not know is that there is a whole system of Bach remedies that were developed over 80 years ago by the physician, Dr. Edward Bach.
These natural flower remedies are safe and free of side effects. They are made in a similar way to homeopathic remedies, and none of the flowers and plants used are toxic.
Bach Flower Essences help create a sense of peace and calm by harmonizing negative emotions and thought patterns, as well as enhancing positive emotions.
Scientific studies have been done proving the effectiveness of Flower Essence Therapy. Dr. Maribel Perez, a Specialist in Psychiatry and Social Psychiatry, has presented numerous scientific studies supporting it’s efficacy.
“At first, I believed that Flower Essence Therapy would not work, but immediately thereafter, I began seeing its benefits for my patients’ health. . . . Today, both psychiatrists and other doctors frequently refer cases to me.”

I have found these remedies to be profoundly helpful for my clients who are struggling with anxiety and depression.
