I Help Youth And Teenagers With Issues Of:
Being bullied is one of the most devastating issues faced by teens. I help guide victims through the ordeal that is bullying.
More teenagers are self harming than ever before. I help teenagers find healthy ways to deal with the pain that leads to self-harming behaviour.
Many teenagers face issues of self-confidence. I teach teenagers how to feel good about themselves, regardless of what is going on around them.

It is normal to be nervous before your first counselling session.
