Helping You Move from

Anxious, Stressed and Overwhelmed

to

Calm, Confident and Connected to

Your Greatest Self

quote 1.jpg

No Longer Be Ruled by Negative Emotions,

Self-Sabotaging Thoughts & Unhealthy Behavior!

  • Are stressful, anxious or overwhelming thoughts negatively affecting your health, self-esteem and relationships?

  • Are self-sabotaging thoughts & behaviors blocking your ability to experience satisfaction and enjoyment in your life?

  • Is your child suffering with anxiety, challenges of school or a family transition?

If you are struggling with any of these issues, I can help you transform your life from being driven by worry, difficulties and that unrelenting inner-critic to being driven by what excites you and internal harmony. I understand what you are going through and have the utmost compassion for you. You are not alone in this.

My Journey

Hi, I'm Charity. I have a Masters in Counselling Psychology, I'm a Registered Clinical Counsellor, Relationship Coach, Qualified Mindfulness Teacher, avid traveler, ecstatic dancer, soulful singer and a playful spirit!

For over a decade, I've used a holistic approach to healing the physical, emotional and core challenges of my clients. Through somatic-based (mind-body) practices and a large list of professional qualifications, I've helped my clients take back control of their lives. I love what I do!

Along with years of professional education in health and wellness, I also bring years of experience with my own personal development that helped me heal from an abusive relationship, sexual assaults and a violent childhood that left me so far removed from the woman I wanted to be. Once I regained my joyful, peaceful, healthy self there was no question of what I wanted to do and it would be my honour to help you (and your child) reclaim your health, happiness and love too!
