Bronwyn is passionate about children and families and believes that all children have the right to opportunities that will allow them to develop into their unique selves. Such development, she believes, should take place on a holistic level that encompasses mind, body and soul.
The main focus of Bronwyn’s work is to help children and adults develop ways of communicating, sharing, listening and unconditionally loving, in order for them to have the skills needed to enhance the life of the individual, the family, the extended family and the community.
When needed, Bronwyn can further provide restorative justice practices and mediation between individuals/family members , in a school or higher education setting. She is experienced in creating strategies to support students in their relationship both with teachers and the wider school community.
Bronwyn has personal experience with all the above areas of life. She is mindful that her counseling sessions need to provide a warm, compassionate and respectful space where individuals of all ages have the opportunity to share and overcome life’s challenges.
