About : About Me


Ready to feel secure and confident in your own skin?

You remember a time when anxiety, broken relationships, depression and low self-esteem weren’t the “norm” … but those days feel like a distant memory. Don’t you wish you had the tools to change that?


You’ve come to the right place.


At The Listening Community we help people just like you: ones that have it within them to take control of their life and thrive again, but just need the support to get there.


We help our clients find happiness, peace of mind, and self-compassion by equipping them with the tools they need to better understand themselves and others.

Many of today’s solutions for the issues you might be facing are one-size-fits-all, leading so many to feel like they are making no progress and wasting their time and money. We know that your circumstances are unique, so every step we take is tailored to you, and always with an end goal in mind.


First, we explore the thoughts or circumstances that are causing the problems you’re experiencing. Then, we look at tools and therapies that will be most effective for you. Through working together with one of our therapists, you’ll be equipped with the skills and confidence you need to thrive in your day-to-day life and relationships.

Why Therapy at

The Listening Co?

We are dedicated to helping people transform their life.


Our therapists specialise in areas like relationships, CBT, EMDR, anxiety therapy, teen therapy, depression therapy, and life transitions, which means we have the expertise you need and deserve when working on yourself. But at the end of the day, you want to know you’re working with someone who “gets” what it means to be a YOU and struggling, right?


We get it because our therapists have lived their own life experiences of loss, depression, grief, and anxiety - just to name a few. So when we work together, you won’t just get a trained therapist you’ll get someone who truly understands what you’re going through.
