I believe that in the right environment we remain whole, uninhibited and naturally driven towards the fulfilment of our desires and potential. Often other people’s agendas, anxiety and painful events in our lives can separate us from this forward motion and better judgement.
This can manifest mentally, bodily, emotionally and even dynamically in our careers, habits and close relationships. Creating the right environment together; I work with clients to take an honest look at those emotions and dynamics, putting the unwanted ones back where they belong and ultimately helping my clients get back on track.
