That is the way it was at the beginning of my own search for healing, which was a long time ago now.

"At times in our lives we get stuck, feel lost and need that focused reflection to shift our attitude and reveal the layers of who we truly are that is often hidden by the limits of our thoughts, beliefs, personal story and habitual behaviours in the world.

As a psychotherapist I assist in this journey."

"Reasons for starting therapy are many: depression and anxiety, trauma, disordered eating habits, and self-defeating behaviours. Therapy is a process whereby the client is encouraged to examine her or his life story. The therapist requires tenderness and maturity in working with clients, allowing them to express, in their own time, anger, shame, frustration-any number of emotions-so that healing and transformation can happen and they can come to see themselves as unique human beings. Therapy helps clients accept what is broken in themselves by opening to new possibilities and freeing themselves from old patterns."

We seek out therapy because we might be having problems in our relationships, experiencing a loss, or feel like the ways in which we have previously coped aren't working so well anymore.
