Mates in Mind

I specialise in counselling with both individuals and couples. People often talk using the language of HURT because that’s what they’re most fluent in. My job is to help people become more fluent in the language of HOPE and LOVE. Understanding your defence mechanisms and how they operate is often the first step towards change.

During the course of each session, you are my priority and you can expect to be met with acceptance, kindness and respect. At your own pace, we will address the core issues underlying your mindset in order to get more clarity and perspective on your current situation.
