Sarah Cohen-Schwarz

Registered Counsellor

Counselling is a meaningful, challenging and rewarding journey. It is a way of connecting to ourselves to find out how we feel, what we need, and who we are. When we no longer expect ourselves to conform to rigid ideas about how we should be, we start to develop resilience and a greater capacity to choose the lives we want. Rather than our emotions, past traumas or judgments ruling our lives, we get to make conscious choices.

What is important to me is our ability to engage with your experience without judgement, the confidentiality of our sessions, and the trustworthiness of our relationship.  I am most interested in what will improve your sense of well-being.
