Sylvia is a warm and caring counsellor whose first aim is to help you feel at ease. She has had a wealth of life experience that has given her a heartfelt, first-hand understanding of the need to find balance and compassionate support in times of need.
As a parent and carer herself with young children, Sylvia developed a keen interest in supporting couples coping with varied life stressors, and families whose children have health challenges.
Sylvia has lived experience of the cultural adjustments and personal identity issues faced by immigrant and expatriate communities.
With a previous career background in leadership and as a corporate adviser, Sylvia has now found much greater fulfilment working as a counsellor, helping people grow and change, and is currently in her final months of completing a Master of Counselling degree.
