“When we are suffering, we tend to look at all that is wrong in our lives. We can make judgements and assumptions about ourselves or our situations that focus only on the negative. In my work with clients I hold the view that whatever issues might arise, there is more right with us than wrong. We each have developed ways of being in the world that have enabled us to cope with whatever challenges we have had to face. These coping strategies become our defense system and are often developed by us at an early age when we had few resources. They can sometimes become barriers to living in a full and meaningful way, creating negative patterns of relating to others and the world around us.

Through the work of exploring our experiences, emotions and ways-of-being, with compassion and self-acceptance, in the safety and confidentiality of a therapeutic relationship, we discover the possibility for healing and lasting change.

It would be a great privilege to work with you as we explore together the challenges and obstacles that you are experiencing while crafting together a new vision and greater fulfillment in your life.”
