Welcome to Effective Directions!


We provide:

From time to time we all experience challenges and struggles in our lives. During these difficult times we may go to family or friends for help, support and guidance.

Sometimes, these challenges and struggles are just too much and talking to family and friends aren’t resolving the issues. And then these issues start impacting our lives in a way that is not healthy or good for us or anyone around us.

An example of such struggles and challenges could be:

  • grief and loss
  • communication and relationships issues
  • work and career issues
  • stress, anxiety and depression
  • parenting
  • addiction (alcohol, drugs, smoking, weight, nail biting, etc)
  • abuse (physical, mental & emotional)
  • trauma (past event, childhood trauma, accident, etc)
  • self-esteem difficulties
  • exploring their gender identity and/or sexuality
  • life transitions such as the birth of a new baby, separation, divorce or the death of a family member or friend

Often it is good to talk to someone who wont criticise us, who is trained and qualified to help us through these hard and challenging times. Someone who get’s it, who has a level of understanding of what is happening in your life. And someone who is patient, compassionate, and non-critical.
