I am so glad that you’re visiting….it takes courage to reach out!

Let me help you to stop viewing yourself or your relationships as broken or existing in the wrong way. All this time, effort and energy you’re putting into anxiety, stress, sadness and beating yourself up, can be used simply to rebuild your life.
For people outside of you, that will look like improvement. But you won’t be concerned with that, as you’ll be content with how you are.

About me

I am easy to get along with and I can be that beacon, that friend, in a world that seems so unfair and lonely at times. At fifty five years of age, I have experienced much of life and I too had a troubled marriage….so I understand the needs and desires that occupy your mind at all hours of the day and night. I know about the sleepless nights, the worry, the agony, knots in your stomach, the night-sweats and the tears.

I have also worked closely with people that have experienced severe alcohol and drug addiction or misuse and my approach to these issues is focused more on the internal turmoil than on the substance. Everybody self medicates in some way….Take away the pain and the substance issue will subside.

What I do

I am a compassionate listener that understands human emotion. I help people to find the positives (themselves) in their lives by being real and communicating in simple language. You are experiencing a rough time in your work, mind, marriage, relationship or you may be struggling with a substance abuse issue….At this point it is more important to come to grips with how you feel, rather than with what you know! Healing a broken heart, feeling sad and lonely and experiencing guilt because your life is not flowing, is one of the most painful experiences that you may ever have to cope with……but I too know that pain but I also know that recovery is possible. Allow me to help you to redirect your life….regardless of where misdirection began.

I have experienced freedom….a real freedom of all expectation and I have learnt to be…just be.
​Let me show you a new normal.

I specialise in:

  • Marriage counselling and guidance
  • Mediation during divorce or separation
  • Substance abuse and addiction counselling
  • Coping with depression and anxiety

​Why choose me to guide you on your journey of self actualisation?

You will have the time and space to just be you!
I will not judge you…I have not experienced your personal journey.

A safe and warm environment awaits, with strict confidentiality and an opportunity to relax and grow in a way that comforts you. I have helped many people before and I believe I can help you too.

You will have my undivided and focused attention. Ultimately, you will grow stronger and find all the right reasons to live a fulfilling and happy life and in the end, have all that you will need on your journey.
