‘When we are no longer able to change a situation – we are challenged to change ourselves’. Viktor Frankl.
The therapeutic relationship is very important. It can establish a unique process that helps to explore reflection upon becoming how you would wish to be.
I work with people who have deep aspirations for their life, yet feel they have become stuck in anxiety, depression, trauma, loss, eating problems, and/or illness. The work centres around reconnecting clients to what they want most deeply for their life, helping them to make progress in engaging with the different aspects of living that are personally and individually important, no matter what obstacles they face in order to gain a more fulfilling life path.
Clients go on to develop an increased sense of satisfaction and effective control over their lives in an atmosphere of sensitivity, safety, respect and optimism for the capacity to overcome difficulties.
