Since everybody is unique, each one of us has our own solutions and resources within ourselves. By exploring your own experiences with you I have undertaken a diverse range of Psychological and therapeutic training to help individuals identify better ways of relating in relationships with others so that they can make the choices to live the lives they want to lead.
