Being unhappy or unfulfilled is a stressful state.
Would you like to change that?
If you want to:
Manage your stress…
Feel happier and more confident…
Make peace with your past…
Change is so much easier with help from a counsellor.
If you are like many of my clients, you want to feel happier, more peaceful, and inspired in your life, but something is getting in the way.
You may be longing to move forward into the dreams and goals you have for yourself either in your home life or in your career, but don’t know how to deal with the fear, tension, or confusion that sometimes arise.
Perhaps you are worried about and feeling overwhelmed by bigger picture questions like climate change, or economic and political issues in the world. Or, you may be experiencing some of the health challenges that can come from ongoing stress.
- Sometimes feel overwhelmed by the stresses and pressures you feel?
- Want to be able to handle fear, anxiety, or anger more effectively?
- Have an incident or situation in your life that remains unresolved?
- Sometimes feel there is nothing left over for you?
- Want to find a sense of deeper meaning or purpose?
- Feel that you are ready for a change, and feel unsure of where to start?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you are not feeling as peaceful or fulfilled as you could be.
You may have even begun to notice the signs of strain in your body, with aches and pains, decreased immunity, or other health issues.
This is a sure sign that something needs to change.
You are probably reading this website because you are looking for help. I want you to know that counselling can be a powerful support for the changes you want to make in your life.
Even though you may have lived with these challenges up until now, or painful things may have happened in your life, you do not have to continue down the same difficult path.
Letting go of the past and being more effective in the present involve simple but powerful skills that you CAN learn.
- You CAN transform your response to the stressors in your life.
- You CAN make peace with old griefs, integrate them fully, and move on.
- You CAN learn to value yourself and what you have to offer--as much as you value others.
Let go of old emotional patterns that
are not working for you--
so that fear, anxiety, and depression are no longer in charge.
Learn how to reduce the stress in your life — and cope with the remaining stressors more effectively.
In my counselling practice, I help you explore and uncover how to have more access to your own inner strength and wisdom. Through our work together, you will experience more clarity on how to move through the issues that are negatively affecting your life.
I am becoming more confident in my own skin, happier about the decisions I make, more positive about the future and my boundaries are stronger.”

I believe that you have the ability to heal yourself and your life—you just need support to help you find the right questions—and your own answers.
When I work with you, I will be a compassionate witness, supporter, and coach on your journey towards emotional and mental wellness.
Together we will craft a plan that is individually tailored to your unique wants and needs.
In my years working as a therapist, I have witnessed the healing power of cultivating a caring therapeutic relationship with my clients—one that gives you the safety to explore and move through whatever needs to be healed.
As well as being supportive, effective counsellors also know when to gently challenge and inspire you in ways that help you move forward into creating your dreams.
I endeavour to provide a counselling atmosphere that is:

Thank you so much, Tamara, for the wonderful session on Thursday! It was 'simply' powerful to experience the shift. Very recommendable! And I am impressed with your calm and competent approach.”

There are few things more gratifying to me than helping you uncover the truth of who you really are, and witnessing the “a-ha” moments that will change the course of your life.
If you’re feeling the pull to make a change, and you feel a resonance with what I’ve written—I would be honoured to work with you.
Here are some more of the benefits you can achieve in our work together:
- increased confidence
- improved ability to access calm states of being
- increased capacity to respond effectively in the present
- healthier and more authentic relationships
- increased sense of self and awareness of your own boundaries
After our first session I found my nearly overwhelming inner turmoil reduced to a manageable level. Since then, I've found myself more able to say what I’m thinking, and I’m not self-censoring internally any more. For probably the first time ever, I feel like I’m growing as a person, and although it's sometimes overwhelming and scary, I feel a sense of confidence and anticipation that makes it all worth it.”

Your capacity to access your inner strength--and maintain supportive relationships--is what will help you weather any challenges with grace and courage.
Investing in your own wellbeing is the most powerful and fulfilling investment you can make.
