About Cheryl

I have a passion for helping people through challenges they are facing. This is why I established North Star online counselling service. Everyone needs a little help now and then, but sometimes it’s hard to get. Maybe you’re too remote, or too busy, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get help.

E-counselling is the answer.
How E-counselling works 

You get the benefit of a professional counsellor on your terms. Confidential, convenient, night or day, wherever you are, through secure email exchanges. Many people choose to start with a 30 minute phone call where we are able to determine if E-counselling is a good fit for them. From there we typically move to secure e-mail correspondence.
Who is E-counselling for? 
You may be struggling with depression, anxiety, phobias, addiction, PTSD or ADHD, and seek healthy ways to cope.
Perhaps something in your life is causing you distress, and it seems like there is no place to turn for help. You may have experienced a loss, and you seek a safe, supportive place to talk about it and get through these uncharted waters. Like so many others, you may looking for help with relationships, or you may simply want to know yourself better in order to gain more control over your life.

Whatever your reason, North Star is here to be your guiding light.
