Mindfulness stems from a foundation of being here now and bringing our attention and awareness to the present moment. We may not always know where the path lies ahead, but we can know where we are now, and focus there.

The Mindfulness-Based Approach

I work from a Mindfulness-based approach to mental health and wellness in my daily life and in my approach to individual counselling. Whether you are seeking to reclaim your life from anxiety, manage stress in an adaptive way, strengthen your sense of self, be more patient in your relationships, or be more focused and present in your own life – Mindfulness can be a valuable daily practice.

I work with adults who are feeling out of touch with who they are, are feeling stuck in their current life circumstances, are feeling distracted in their daily activities, or are feeling overwhelmed by excessive stress or worry. I work with individuals at various life stages to identify, understand and work through barriers to their own mental health and wellness.

An Integrated Approach to Counselling

I believe that feeling grounded in who you are (your authentic-self) and living a life that is in alignment with this, is a foundational component of mental health and well being.

I work from a Mindfulness-based approach to mental health and wellness. Through an exploration of their core values, clients are supported to reconnect with their authentic-self, live life with intention, rediscover their passions, respond to their emotions (rather than reacting), be present in their lives and embrace purposeful living. 

Do you hold beliefs that limit what you feel is possible? Seeking personal growth, but struggling to know where to start?

When we become attached to an idea about ourselves that is outdated, it limits the possibilities that we see available to us and affects our ability to set and achieve personal goals. I incorporate elements of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) to provide a deeper exploration of the conceptual self, the beliefs we hold, the narratives we attach to, and the barriers created to living a fully authentic life. 

When we learn to identify and release our limiting beliefs, we let go of the ideas that hold us back and become open to the opportunities in front of us. This creates space to reconnect with our authentic-self, and our ability to set and achieve goals.
