Hi, thanks for visiting my personal website – With a Little Help.

Don Bradman, Michael Jordan, Martina Navratilova…what did they all have in common? Well, aside from all being remarkable athletes, each one of them had a support network around them.

sutherland counsellor joel helmesArmstrong, Aldrin and Collins reached the Moon, true, but it was only with the ground crew back on Earth supporting them that they were able to achieve that amazing feat.

I believe that many people are making their way through their life without adequate levels of support, assistance and external encouragement.

This could be one of the main reasons why people get to a point where they just don’t know where to go next. It’s that feeling of being burnt-out, exhausted, lost or directionless.   

There are ways to move forward.

Do I know those feelings? Yes, I do. Long before I became a Holistic Counsellor I was very familiar with the feeling of being a ship adrift in a storm. However, I reached out and now I’m here to assist others through their own sticking points. 

Sitting down and spending some time with a person-centred Counsellor like myself could be just what you need at this point in your life. 

I believe in the potential of all human beings. I believe that getting support, encouragement, tips and strategies, can help us move forward and better navigate the ups and downs of life.

Mostly, I believe that we are all capable of extraordinary change.

So, why not start where you can start. Here.
