I have been an established therapist for over 20 yrs working with anxiety and low self esteem, mental health issues and trauma. I have taught psychotherapy and currently run trauma and tension releasing exercises in groups.
The one to one therapy offers clarity, understanding and insight into how we live our lives. If we can bring awareness and compassion to all aspects of human experience, there is no limit to the level of healing that can take place in us, body and mind included.
