Individual Counselling

There are many reasons that people seek therapy. For example, life may not be going the way you thought it would and you may be feeling stuck or frustrated.  At other times, you may feel overwhelmed with life challenges and want to find strategies to cope with these challenges. Whatever the reason you are seeking therapy, Laurie can help you explore these issues and develop strategies in order to move forward with life. In a confidential and safe space, she can help you to identify negative thoughts, feelings and behaviours which may be holding you back from living your life to its’ fullest potential.  Counselling can help you find ways to respond differently to your situation and make realistic decisions and goals.

Why wait to feel better? Counselling can help you to implement positive change in your life.
