Description

Hello and welcome to Lotus Counselling, I'm founder and Psychotherapist Elisha Schafer. I bring a decade of experience working in front line environments as a therapist and leader from the hospital, withdrawal management centre, and private treatment centres. My belief for therapy is that self exploration is essential for growth, my authenticity and humour is really what sets me apart from others. Together, we will identify and start to move toward your goals and values, the things that matter to you and helping navigate through anything getting in the way!
