“I have a natural ability to help you to feel at ease and safe with me”.

“Carefully listening and connecting with you are important to me as part of the healing process”.

“I do not just offer advice or to try and “fix” your problems.  I believe that your wisdom and answers lie within you and I want to help you to discover them”.

“Personally, I have experienced losing my way in life and facing my personal demons.  Through counselling and other healing practices, I have navigated through inner turmoil and deep suffering to find new direction and meaning in my life.

“My intention is to live an authentic life. “Walking my talk” and staying true to myself are important to me.

“I am committed to personal growth as well as spiritually awakening and I can appreciate the fine line in this process”.

“I have the ability to inspire and motivate people”.

“My style is warm, honest, and direct”.
