Covid-19

Counselling

Covid-19 and the lockdown in South Africa have turned our lives upside down. Our familiar ways of engaging with the world have been put on hold as we wait to see what version of life emerges. This has been an incredibly stressful time for most people. Stronger-than-normal emotional responses are to be expected and need to be met with kindness.

If the Covid-19 pandemic has brought up unfamiliar feelings that you want help understand or if it has triggered unresolved loss-related issues from your past, you may feel the need for additional support at this time. There is no shame in this. 

I provide a confidential, non-judgemental, and validating space, via virtual consults, for adults and adolescents, where you will be heard and where we will work towards making sense of your feelings.
