If you live in Barrie or the surrounding area and are looking for a professional who will deeply listen to your concerns, please contact me to arrange a free 1/2 hour initial consultation. During this initial meeting, you will have the opportunity to tell me about the problem you are faced with. As an individual you may be feeling overwhelmed by sadness or worry or lacking a sense of direction for your life. Couples often feel lost about how to change hurtful ways of relating to each other. I will give you some feedback about what might be helpful to you and with your permission address one part of the problem so that you can experience what working with me is like. You will be able to ask any questions you have about me as a professional or about the approach I am using. Together we can decide if this feels like a good fit.

Counselling or therapy is usually most beneficial for the following circumstances:

  • The problem you are dealing with is mostly related to managing your feelings or moods, which are interfering with your day to day functioning.
  • You are struggling in your personal relationships and find you are feeling lonely or dissatisfied.
  • You want to understand why connections break down within yourself or with others and how to heal them.

Coaching is a more effective approach for the following situations:

  • You are having trouble meeting goals that are important to you.
  • You feel stuck or unable to get clarity about a future plan for yourself.
  • You have difficulty staying motivated and are unable to see what is getting in your way.
