Are you tired of ignoring your own needs, wants, and desires?
If so, you're in the right place.
You may have been called an "over-achiever", "an old soul",
"mature for your age", or a "perfectionist" as you worked hard
to maintain a sense of stability, safety, and predictability in your life.
You learned to care for the needs of others at the expense of your own,
because this was the best way to survive,
or you were lead to believe that your needs did not matter.
But you're starting to notice that there is a cost
to ignoring your own feelings, and needs.
Perhaps, you feel resentment towards others for not giving you the care you give to them.
Maybe you feel a sense of emptiness or simply lost.
If you're ready to get curious about your inner world and
to start focusing your energy on your own well-being and healing,
I can help.
Counselling can provide you with...
✨ Tools for tending to those aching and sore parts of yourself
✨ A felt sense of care and compassion
(you don't have to do this all on your own)
✨ Space to take a break from caring for others,
so that you can focus on what lights you up and brings you joy
✨An understanding of how the way that you think impacts the way that
you feel and the ways that you act
✨ Opportunities to learn and try new ways of coping that
balance your desire to help others with your need to care for yourself
✨ Skills to soothe your nervous system
so that you feel less frazzled and overwhelmed at work and at home
✨ Strategies for releasing the stress that you carry with you on a day-to-day basis,
so that you can lean into joy, and find space for ease and rest.
Hi! I'm Amy!
As a Highly Sensitive Person who has struggled with codependency and burnout, I recognize the courage it takes to reach out for help.
I work along side people in their time of need to help them become better able to withstand the curve balls that life throws at them, and build a greater sense of self-love and compassion.
"Do I really need therapy?"
This may come as a surprise, but...
you don't need to be in crisis to access counselling!
Starting counselling is a courageous act of self-care and can facilitate personal growth. It can be helpful during times of uncertainty, change, loss or even times of stagnation.
I believe that we all have the innate capacity to grow, change and become our best selves. I can help you in the process, but you already have this innate ability.
