Welcome
Hello, I’m Dee and welcome to Shifting Tides Counselling & Mediation

As with the movement of water, tides coming and going and the ever-changing landscape of the ocean, life too has it’s moments of change. Uncertainty happens as a result and we can become overwhelmed with thoughts and concerns as to ‘where do I start’.

Reaching out to a therapist or a mediator may be your first step in making change that will allow you to find a better tomorrow by moving forward with your life, with the least amount of resistance and trauma.

As a professional Counsellor/Psychotherapist and Family Dispute Resolution Mediator, I can support you in your journey of resolution and solutions.
There are three solutions to every problem, accept it, change it or leave it.
If you can’t accept it, change it. If you can’t change it leave it.

Could real life, simple strategies help you find a better tomorrow?


Therapy, through Counselling and Psychotherapy can support you in finding strategies to achieve greater self-acceptance and build self-esteem. It will also support in the development of communication skills so that you can handle life situations more effectively.

If you are experiencing challenges from the situations below, you may be ready for a shift to help you get back on track:
Depression
Anxiety
High Stress
Conflict
Relationship Pressures
Grief and Loss
Self-esteem and confidence issues
If life is not evolving as you expect, we can give you the freedom to decide where to finish. Make better choices and use some real life strategies to help you to start building the life you want.
