Susan's Strategies

The Greek word "charis" means: "a state of grace" and this is what we strive for here. 


I rely on proven Depth Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral, Clinical Hypnosis, Solution-focused and Narrative therapeutic interventions to assist those who are dealing with stressful life events and challenging emotions. My client-centered therapeutic foundation honors inherent strength and wisdom to recover from adversity. You will find an empathetic listener here at Charis Counselling who can assist you in transforming hardship into peace and balance.
