I cannot stress enough - I am so glad you're here! Counselling Up is a place to explore your personal development in a welcoming and non-judgmental space.
There is so much out there about the importance of mental health and wellbeing. But when it comes time to access services, there are long wait times, service gaps, or it's just too expensive. And those are just the things I've heard from clients this week!
I have been working in the mental health field, providing coaching, counselling, and workshops for over 10 years. In this time, I've learned a few things that I wanted to root my practice in.
Counselling Up is a place to approach mental wellbeing in the same way that we attend to wellbeing in other areas of our lives. We go to the doctor for our annual check ups, try to stay active for our physical health, go to the salon/shop to feel good about how we look - let's add seeing a therapist to that list to feel our best, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.

Note: I go by Amy, but you will see Eaman on my professional affiliations/degrees. My parents anglicized my name when I was quite young, and I have become so accustomed to using it in professional settings, that it can take me a moment to register when folks call me by Eaman. I identify with both names, which is why I will often use them interchangeably.
I may or may not be the best professional to support your needs. This is why I offer a free half hour consultation so you can get a "feel" for what it's like to chat with me.
