Therapy & Coaching

Therapy explores your feelings, thoughts and behaviours to relieve emotional pain and deepen your relationship to self and to others. It is the first step in self awareness and personal freedom. Coaching complements therapy by focusing on you in the present and helps map your path to a desired future.
