Counselling and Psychotherapy
Molly integrates mindfulness with somatic, cognitive behavioural, and psychodynamic methods — all to support insight, skill-building, and resilience. Areas of specialty:
- anxiety, stress management, self-care
- grief, loss, transition
- low mood and depression
- identity, self-esteem, assertiveness
- addictive patterns
- career planning
- relationships, sexuality, and couple counselling
- communication and conflict dynamics
Bring awareness to what matters to you both—whether that’s to strengthen your emotional connection and change patterns, or deciding to separate.
Mindfulness helps us become aware of body-mind habits and stressors, and tap our innate strength and resilience. Molly trained in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) with founder Jon Kabat-Zinn as well as Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) and Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC). Molly offers 8-week series and introductory programs for the public, as well as to staff in organizations.
