About Key Counselling Services

Key Counselling Services was started in 1998 as a service to help people address and cope with problems in their lives. Finding the right Key, can help you pass through doors that would otherwise remained closed.

My training was an integrative model of Counselling, which was helpful in preparing me for working with and choosing models of counselling to suit my clients’ needs. I work with individuals, couples and families in the following areas:

  • Relationship Counselling
  • Anxiety and stress
  • Depression
  • Suicidal ideation
  • Grief and loss
  • Anger management
  • Life change challenges
  • Men’s issues
  • Assertiveness/self esteem
  • Addiction
  • Emigration –acculturation issues
  • Mental health challenges

Life experience
Having raised children, run a business for 20 years, experienced emigration and other life challenges before getting a Master’s in Counselling, I feel I can relate well to the many, every day real life challenges that people face.
