YOUR VOICE: COUNSELLING SERVICES
Breaking the Silence of Distress
Your Voice: Counselling Services aims to provide support to individuals experiencing difficulties with maintaining optimal mental wellness due to identity-based discrimination, trauma, relationship issues or self-acceptance. Through therapeutic intervention, Your Voice: Counselling Services can help individuals feel heard and validated.
It can be challenging for someone to cope with life's various issues without having a safe and comfortable space to discuss their feelings. Speaking to a counsellor can be key in terms of gaining better understanding of your emotions and seeking the clarity you need to address your personal issues.

I provide individual counselling in the following areas:
- Dating and relationships

I offer a 20 minute free consultation for prospective clients. All counselling sessions are conducted virtually via video chat or phone.
