Some more Thoughts about Counselling

I believe in the values of openness, integrity, trust, learning, generosity, commitment and fun.

Outdated patterns of behaviour can damage our self esteem and relationships, leading to a life that is unfulfilled and has lost meaning.

My work can also include relaxation and stress management through mindfulness practice and visualizations.This can be particularly helpful in coping with high anxiety and emotional stress issues.

Mindfulness practice can help to develop a way of experiencing life in an optimistic and beneficent way.

I can explore with you collective patterns and attitudes that maybe influencing your behaviour. Compulsions can narrow life down until there is no living. Whether you are a serious eater, drinker or house cleaner, trapped in whatever type of compulsion, an eating disorder or a workaholic, we can work together to discover your natural rhythm.
