ABOUT MONIQUE

From a very young age, I knew I had a profound purpose to help and encourage others when they need it most. It was only a few years ago that I learned, my name (Monique) means advisor/counsellor. It was then that I realized that not only is it a passion, but it is inscribed in me as a person to counsel and advise others where possible.

Everyone has experienced some form of hardships or difficulty at a given point in their life, and I believe that one should never be ashamed to seek help. My goal is to create a safe space for my clients to freely express themselves without feeling judged or criticized. Respecting each client for the person they are and what they believe is something I take to heart. Each day my need to make a difference in the lives of others keeps on growing.

QUALIFICATIONS

I have obtained my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology (Registered Counsellor) at CTI. It is now known as the University of Pearson Institute of Higher Education.
