Talk therapy (counselling) is evidence based for depression, anxiety (general/phobias/social), grief, and anger management. Being really listened to and heard can be a transformational. It builds self esteem. It safe and natural.

I give each client an opportunity to re-examine their path in life. I take pride in reading my clients’ testimonials and learning how I’ve helped to change their outlook on life. Check out some of their experiences below and contact me to add yours.

I was in a very dark place and I needed to talk to someone. I got online and just rang the number. Then someone was there, and she listened and cared. I found Trish wonderful to talk to. She is so gentle and caring. From there we had an incredible journey and I am now seeing things in a bright new light.  I am glad I found her. Thank you Trish.

When I came 11 weeks ago I couldn't have been any worse. I had been on anti-depressants for years. I feel far better then I ever was on them. Thank you!
