Attachment to others is the most basic human need.  Sometimes we experience challenges in our relationships, which can be distressing.   It's not necessary to delve into the "story" and rehash all the problems.  Rather, a focus on the  interactions between partners, or "the dance", has been shown to be most effective at reducing distress and creating positive connection. 



The study of dreams has diverse cultural and historical roots.  Everyone dreams--men, women, babies, even animals.  What are our dreams telling us?  It's different for everyone!  With guidance, it's possible to explore your dreams to glean insights and understanding.


Walk & Talk

Don't feel like sitting inside a room for your counselling or Dreamwork session?  We can get outside!  


Hypnosis is a state of relaxation and concentration which allows for positive changes and empowerment of the individual. 

Koa Counselling

The Koa tree originates from Hawaii--a beautiful hardwood used to make instruments, canoes, surfboards, furniture and jewellery.  

"Koa" in Hawaiian means: strong, brave, fearless, and confident.  The name conveys a balance of gentle nature and bold adventurer.  

Koa Counselling is just that: a gentle approach to addressing life's challenges by encouraging bravery, and inspiring confidence,
