Online Counselling

Sometimes anxiety stops us from reaching out for support, especially if we have to go in person. The thought of driving somewhere and stepping into an unknown space can be overwhelming, and provides lots of opportunities for us to change our minds and not go; but, being able to see a therapist online allows you to access counselling from the comfort and safety of your own home. You can try out interventions and tools in the very space you will implement them in between sessions, giving you a leg up when you are using them in real time.

Teen Counselling

Such change can be overwhelming, confusing, and uncomfortable. A battle between being independent and reliant often ensues. Peer pressure becomes a major factor in decision-making, and therefore makes your teens social group incredibly important. With COVID, lots of activities and events that teens usually enjoy have been taken away, leading to feelings of isolation and loneliness.

Diabetes Counselling

I don’t need to tell you how stressful that can be. Whether you are newly diagnosed, or a seasoned veteran to the T1D game, it can be incredibly overwhelming to maintain the same unwavering dedication to care for your diabetes. Between finger pokes, infusion site changes, CGM scanning and monitoring, it can be a never-ending chore. Not to mention the anxiety that comes with the fear of blood sugar crashes and surges.
