Sylvia is a warm and caring counsellor/psychotherapist whose first aim is to help you feel at ease. She has a Master of Counselling degree, and 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 a strong interest with working with trauma, and uses trauma-informed counselling techniques.
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.
