About me

I provide a confidential service which is aimed to help people in becoming pro-active in creating the life that they want for themselves, based on the belief system that our thoughts and belief system create our reality. The evidence of what we believe we deserve, is the life that we have created. Within each person is the power to create a happy life. Some people do not know that they have the power to create their own life and therefore they don't know how to use that power. I offer people a learning experience on becoming "SELF" Empowered and happy. Even looking at "mistakes" as opportunities.

Sometimes the hardest thing to do is to admit that we have a problem ....... and that we don't know how to deal with it or fix it. The words "I DON'T KNOW" and "I NEED HELP" for some are shameful to utter, but once you have uttered those words and you seek can change and open up a whole new world of opportunities for you and those closest to you. The truth is that no one can have all the answers all the time, but a little help can go a long way. Asking for help is not a weakness, it takes strength, wisdom and courage. Just think about it for a moment. How much have you stressed and agonised about finding a therapist to help you find a way......find your way again?

So if this is the point that you are at then you are taking the biggest step of all - making the decision to get help and take charge of your own life, happiness and future.

Whatever you choose to do always remember to take care of yourself and be kind to yourself. You are the most important person in your life. Getting professional help is an investment in you and your life and your future happiness.

Even when things go wrong, you can learn how to get the best from any situation and to look at challenges in life as a learning opportunity. Once you learn to get something positive from and even beneficial from every experience, it will change your outlook on life.

You are the master of your destiny. Learn to live life the way you wan to and choose to.. Learn to direct your own life. Don't accept a life where you just "put up with" or "deal with it" or "suck it up"

Some things in life happen and we have to deal with it. We have the choice of not if, but how. Some things will never be easy, but we can still continue to take care of ourselves.

Learn to take care of yourself even when you do not feel like it. Learn to love and appreciate life. Learn to live in the present and to let go of things we can not change.
