I find the majority of my clients are looking for someone to listen to them, they want to be heard. I am hearing more and more that "I feel invisible". They want to feel that they are important and that people care.
I offer a compassionate space where the focus is on my client. I offer the opportunity to go and unpack the issues of the past or not. To learn how to compartmentalize the past, put it in a trunk if that is what they need and lock it away or to look at it, take control over it and move forward in freedom
I have spent my life pushing away the voices of my past - you will never amount to anything, you are useless, you are stupid. I have learned how to silence those voices. As long as the sun will rise, there is always hope. I will walk with my clients to help them to find the hope that was lost. Start today to build a better tomorrow.
