1:1 Counselling

One-on-one therapy and counselling are commonly used to encourage personal growth and healing. It involves meeting with a counsellor individually for roughly one hour at a time to uncover personal struggles, which often lead to problematic behaviour.

1:1 sessions can help pinpoint problematic thoughts and break down barriers that impact emotional and mental well-being. As a counsellor, I seek to help others become more self-aware, to develop self-compassion, self-esteem, and spiritual connections. I believe that getting to know ourselves allows us to better navigate the challenges we all inevitably face in this life. Working 1:1 will enable us to develop personalized approaches and techniques that work best for you.
