Personal Counsellors


Christina views counselling as an individual’s opportunity for personal growth. She believes those seeking counselling are the experts of their own lives and they merely act as a neutral third party without judgement to be a sounding board or a cheerleader. She can put the puzzle pieces together to make sense of questions and move forward.
