“On any given day, I begin each morning by writing in my journal, capturing my dreams, making observations of my inner feeling life and noting shifts in my emotional landscape. It is a reflective activity that ensures I am grounded and connected to self.
Before each session, I sit in quiet contemplation, creating space which I then hold for those who come to consult with me. I attend my clients with care and compassion. It is this courtesy and respect, this open and safe space that you can expect in your sessions.
I will support you through the process so you can best figure out what it is that you need and what direction you want to take. I work collaboratively, and together we will explore, enquire and be curious about your life and circumstance in order to identify ways that might help you find peace, understanding and more empowered paths forward.”
