How I can help
Each and every one of us is faced with life challenges from time to time. Our friends and family can be of great support however sometimes well-intentioned advice can lead us to feel even more confused and overwhelmed. This is when counseling can be of assistance.
My counseling relationship with you is one of trust and confidentiality, a safe place where you are free to express your feelings, concerns and desires without fear of being judged or told what you should do. I consider it a side-by- side relationship. My sole focus in our sessions is to work with you to explore and navigate your challenges to find a way forward that suits and feels comfortable for you.
Why I work with women
Women are faced with many of the same issues as men, however some of the issues that cause us the most stress are often more prevalent in (but not exclusive to) our gender.
Emotions around becoming a mother, juggling work and home, changes that come with age and our perception of ourselves, the emotions around our children leaving home (or not leaving home!), caring for our aging parents just to name a few… can leave us feeling overwhelmed, disempowered and unable to focus on what we need and want for our lives, much less the time and space to flourish.
As a mature woman with personal experience in all these challenges, I have a passion to help other women navigate life’s stresses in a way that is both empowering and geared towards personal growth and fulfillment now and into the future.
Today it’s estimated that one in three grandparents will take on the part-time or full-time care of their grandchildren and the number is increasing as housing prices continue to soar.
In a society that places a high value on youth, beauty, and power, growing older can be daunting and depressing if we allow it. But are we complicit in devaluing ourselves as we get older?
So excited to be facilitating a new course called Exploring What Matters. There’s enormous value in creating a happier, more meaningful life, not only for ourselves but for the wider community.
I read an opinion piece online this week written by a woman whose last child had just flown the nest. She wondered, “… what was now going to be meaningful to do with my time”.
People often ask me what the difference is between counselling and coaching. It’s a good question because sometimes the lines seem a little blurred.
On International Women’s Day I’d like to share my thoughts about on mature women and what we have to celebrate and perhaps, reflect on.
