Through the eyes of Genevieve…
“You are a beautiful, scented candle, I am merely a wooden matchstick for you to rekindle the spark of your brightly glowing flame”
I find myself captivated with the joy of bringing peace and comfort to the variously-seasoned inner worlds of others. I feel called to reach out to bring healing to those experiencing brokenness and facing difficult episodes in their life. For those overwhelmed with hopelessness and despair, I seek to bring hope.
Relationships are of immense value to me as I see the inevitable need for us to feel cherished, cared for and connected to those around us. As disappointments and difficulties in romantic relationships, friendships and other social interactions often impact our mental and emotional well-being, I wish to assist individuals and couples in cultivating meaningful connections, adopting healthy communication patterns and building a strong network of support so as to live a happy, enriched life.
No matter if you are grieving a loss, coping with the pain of a broken relationship, feeling isolated, stressed or anxious, facing decision-making dilemmas or dealing with any other challenges, I am here to listen to your story and be your companion as you navigate the change you desire into your life.

If you find yourself seeking a safe space to express your thoughts and feeling, I invite you to a comfortable and confidential environment for you to relax… unwind… and release all that distresses you - life stresses, intrusive thoughts, worries and fears.
I would be happy and honoured to listen non-judgmentally with an open mind and heart to anything you may wish to share with me confidentially and to journey with you towards reducing and resolving the distress you may be facing.
I welcome you to BAE Counselling & Therapy Centre to begin our counselling journey together.
