Therapeutic Counselling
When working through certain issues, individual sessions can be the most effective approach. Perhaps there are practical issues that need problem solving, or the issue may be work life balance or difficulty with mild memory deficits after a concussion. Anne-Marie utilizes Somatic Experiencing when this methodology is appropriate and desired.

Anne-Marie also offers coaching to help you achieve your desired goals. A full coaching program includes a thorough assessment, a personal development plan and ongoing support to make change possible and lasting. The purpose of a specially designed coaching plan is to help you to development new skills and self-understanding, so you can see and experience yourself and your issues from a new perspective. An assessment stage followed by a collaborative plan designed for your unique issues includes self-reflective exercises, new experiences and personal practices to encourage development and competencies that are needed for embodied change.
