Counselling Services

I, Sondra, have over 15 years experience in individual, family and group counseling support.

I believe in a holistic, integrative approach to counseling, which encourages you to connect with your inner resources and the support in the people around you. I work with a variety of tools to encourage coping and working through your personal challenges.

I have a broad range of experience with a focus in supporting couples, families with teens and individuals who are transitioning to parenthood.

Parenthood and care-giving is a life-changing event, which can leave individuals feeling out of their depth, unprepared, exhausted, emotional and at times traumatized.

I offer a safe, confidential space to support individuals as they talk through and reflect upon their experiences and make sense of what is happening in their lives.

In particular I have worked with the following issues:

  • Depression and Ante/Postnatal Depression
  • Adolescent Concerns and Family Conflict 
  • Anxiety and Worry
  • Birth  and Personal Trauma
  • Parenthood Identity
  • Relationship Difficulties
  • Fertility Struggles 


Sessions
I offer in person,(in an office or your home)  Skype or phone sessions. It is important for you to find a space that you are comfortable.

Joint Sessions with Tynan (Sexual Health Coach)
Sometimes the transition into parenthood puts a unique strain on partners and individuals sex lives. The body goes through incredible changes from the inside out. The shifting role of being a lover to a parent or lovers to co-parents, to both lover and parent is new, frustrating, exciting, exhausting, scary! It’s not surprising that we’re not feeling very sexy when we’re sleep-deprived and covered in baby spit-up.

Rates 
The initial 30-minute consultation session is FREE of charge in order to give you the opportunity ask any questions you may have, and to get a feel for whether or not my approach is the right fit for you.  Subsequent sessions are normally one hour in length, and the standard fee is $95.00 per session. A sliding scale fee is available.
