Sheila holds a Master of Social Work degree (MSW) and is also a Registered Social Worker (RSW). She has provided counselling, group facilitation and training services to individuals and organizations for over nineteen years. Recognizing that it's easier for people to succeed when they engage their process of healing and personal growth, Sheila opened her private practice, Heartsease Counselling & Consulting, through which she helps people and organizations thrive.

Sheila knows how important it is that a person feel heard. That's why she listens. She knows also that people need to be understood, validated, accepted, encouraged and inspired. She maintains this focus while providing all of Heartsease services. 

Individual, Couple and Group Counselling

Sheila’s priority is to support people and inspire them through their healing process.  Healing does not have to be intimidating or overwhelming; Sheila guides people to heal in creative, energizing and life-enhancing ways, gently encouraging them to work through the pain they are carrying to a place where they can engage life in a healthier, happier way.

Through Heartsease Counselling & Consulting, Sheila supports people overwhelmed by the challenges of everyday life, be they ‘great’ or ‘small’. Heartsease clients explore a range of issues including anxiety, depression and anger, experiences of grief and loss, relationship challenges and personal and work-related stress. Sometimes people need to resolve something they’ve been carrying for a long time. Sheila has worked on behalf of government-funded charitable organizations, specializing in working with men and women healing the pain of childhood sexual abuse and/or recovering from the trauma of sexual assault. 

Sheila works with those who want to feel a greater sense of direction and purpose – those who wish to find and express the best of who they are; she supports people as they perfect their ability to live a live that best expresses their special, unique, inner essence.

Community Workshops and Corporate Seminars

Sheila facilitates training and educational seminars and has done so throughout her professional career. Heartsease services include a wide variety of life-enhancing workshops and energizing professional seminars.  Programs are tailor-made to benefit the membership/employee base of many organizations. These programs provide the tools and information people need to be clear in their direction, purposeful and productive as well as experience greater accomplishment, life-work satisfaction, happiness and success.

True Healing

True healing is attainable now
in the present moment.

True healing involves consistently
honouring who you are and
to give yourself everything you need
to be whole.

This is the essence of wellbeing.
This is the essence of Heartsease.
