You may be feeling stuck or anxious in your life. Perhaps you are dealing with relationship issues, bereavement or loss, or difficulties in particular areas of your life which may seem insurmountable or confusing or perhaps you just want to know more about yourself and what leads you to get into particular situations or relationships which may feel frustrating, unproductive or unsatisfying
I offer a confidential setting which can provide the possibility to explore these issues to gain more awareness and clarity about what might be getting in the way of you feeling more at ease with yourself. The work can open up new possibilities of understanding and different perspectives so as to gain more choices in how you live your life and different ways of being in the world.
