My name is Sheila and my work involves helping clients work towards finding meaning and hope beyond their immediate struggle while imparting the knowledge, that even in the depths of suffering, they are not alone.
I run a private practice SDC Therapy - Support During Crisis- Which offers a blended therapeutic service of face-face, online and telephone sessions to young people and adults going through mental, emotional and relational crises.
