Welcome to New Leaf Counselling

Counselling. Coaching. Consultation.

 

It's not what happens to you, but how you react to it that matters.

About Counselling

What is Counselling?

Counselling is a collaborative effort between the counselor and client. Professional counselors help clients identify goals and potential solutions to problems which cause emotional turmoil; seek to improve communication and coping skills; strengthen self-esteem; and promote behavior change and optimal mental health. Counselling focuses on resolving matters arising from a variety of emotions causing some anxiety or blockage.
