Counselling for Parents from Pregnancy to Playground

Dealing with family life, especially during pregnancy, childbirth, and the early stages of parenting, can be tough. It can make you feel tired both physically and emotionally. That's where I can help. I offer personalized therapy sessions either online or in-person to support you in looking after yourself. By setting aside time for your own well-being, you'll not only feel more energized but also better prepared to take care of your family. It's important to focus on self-care, so you can handle the challenges of parenthood with strength and resilience.
