There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable
As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our Light, not our Darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you Not to be?

How do I work?
I offer one on one sessions either in person or via Skype. I work with couples, families and individuals in a manner that is uniquely tailored to your specific needs.
I offer a comfortable and confidential space where you have the freedom to look at your life free of expectation or judgement.
I also offer courses in adult transition, which allow me to reach a greater number of clients. Please look at the courses offered and contact me for more information. My courses are focussed on adult actualization, specializing in relationship insights and intrinsic growth using the principles of depth psychology and the principles of positive psychology.
Clients choose counselling when they have reached a crisis point, or when life feels difficult to navigate and understand alone. It may be that you are undergoing changes and need some perspective or direction. Prolonged anxiety, depression, emptiness, or loss of meaning or purpose can also be a motivation for therapy. Therapy assists to gain clarity and perspective and result in a deeper, richer and more self- aware life. The benefits of therapy are that it can equip you with different coping mechanisms, allow you to view things from a new perspective, help you to understand your unconscious drives and liberate yourself from behaviours that hold you back. Therapy can also help you navigate conflict, change and stressful situations.
The ultimate goal is to work towards a full, rich, self- aware life.
