Welcome to Hope and Grow

I help people to make a difference in their lives and bring hope for recovery, by focusing on their values and strengths; so they can have a meaningful life, with lasting relationships and fulfilling life.


I believe in educating people about the impact mental health has on peoples lives. With a strong belief in the importance of early intervention.

Counselling is a process of supporting you to identify and work through any issues you may have – including difficult life experiences or past problems that are impacting your present feelings or behaviours:

People's life journey can take you down many different roads and face many life transitions, some may be very joyful while others may be very painful and challenging. Adjusting to change can be a difficult time, even positive life transitions tend to cause us stress.


If you are experiencing difficulty coping with life transitions and change, such as starting a new job, relationships trouble, becoming a parent, 'empty nest', divorce, retirement, or death, I can help you learn to navigate the changes and obstacles in your life, so you can move forward and learn the skills and strategies needed to calm your mind and feel at ease with yourself. 

My goal is to help people where they are at

  • To get your life on track 

  • To teach you how to bring acceptance and compassion to your life situation, 

  • How to extend acceptance and compassion to others in your life.

  • Changing your response to triggers that make you feel angry, sad, or anxious.

  • Help you to discover your values and achieve your personal goals. 

  • Take charge of your life today and attain emotional and mental wellbeing.

  • To build stronger relationships

Life Transitions

Adjusting to change can be difficult time for anyone, even positive life transitions tend to cause some stress.

Building Healthy Relationships


Open, honest and safe communication is a fundamental part of a healthy relationship. The first step to building a relationship is making sure you both understand each other’s needs and expectations

Anxiety is normal healthy response to stressful situations. However, sometime anxiety can interfere with your day-to-day function.

Anger Management

There is not a human being on this earth who will go through life without emotional pain or anger. This is the human condition, that we will suffer. Yet we can learn that pain and anger need not destroy our lives.


Our moods will fluctuate and most of us will experience depression at some point in our lives. We often feel low in response to different stressors

Depression is a debilitating experience that significantly affects people's quality of life

Grief and Loss

Grief and loss come in many different ways, from the death of a loved one to the loss of employment or relationship.  

It's okay that you're not okay in your time of grief.
