Counselling is a helping conversation with someone who offers understanding, acceptance, and honesty. Being truly heard, sometimes for the very first time, allows us to ease our burdens, and enlighten our path.

A little bit of history…
Una started out in the Information Technology industry, working in various roles but mainly in management. She was one of those people that everyone came to for help and a listening ear; to talk about their problems with and relate their life stories to. Una helped so many of her colleagues and friends and realised after many years of working in the IT industry that it was time for a career change. Being inspired by her passion and ability to help others, she wanted to do just that for all the people who come to her for help, but professionally; become fully qualified to make a greater impact and a more permanent difference in their lives. And hence, here she is today, offering her services to help you to make positive changes to your life.
It is so fulfilling to know I have successfully helped so many people to grow and become their real selves, enabling them to empower themselves to go on to live their lives the way they want to.
