We all have our own histories and desires for our futures. At times these personal narratives can feel like a resource and at other times a hindrance. Sometimes we feel like we’re stuck or are moving backwards when we want to go forwards. How do we stay present in our day-to-day lives when we are visited by the voices of the past or images of the future? How do we find and listen to the voice of strength, wisdom and resiliency that lives in each one of us, when that voice seems to be silent? I don’t offer pat answers, but instead offer space and guidance to help you to deeply explore the issues and questions that want to explore.

Providing a balance of support and challenge, my approach to healing is holistic and comprehensive. I believe that each individual has all of the inner resources they need to achieve a sense of balance and equanimity. My role is merely to provide a safe, non-judgmental container in which they can reach their own integration - cognitively, emotionally and somatically. I aim to assist the individual's journey-making process through offering new ways at looking through the lens which often gets obscured by many mitigating factors. Clarity is the goal.

Are you involved with a Narcissist? If so, you may be feeling confused, uncertain and even unsafe in your relationship. You tolerate strange and hurtful behaviour from this person. You seem to be in a cycle of really good, then really bad, then silence/discard. You keep going back. You feel like you are walking on eggshells. You feel like you've lost yourself. And you wonder if this is all really happening...? Yes, it is! You have been targeted by a Narcissist. Their behaviours cause you elevated stress. It's not your fault, but it is difficult to heal from the complex PTSD symptoms resulting from this relationship on your own.

Dear Reader: The reason I get out of bed every morning is not because I believe life is easy - but that it is difficult. What makes life difficult is the fact, that it presents an endless series of problems which require solutions. The very process of confronting and solving life's problems can be a painful one; at times full of sadness, confusion, anxiety, hurt, anger, fear and loneliness. These are uncomfortable feelings, sometimes highly distressing and can equal the worst kind of physical pain. Fearing the suffering involved, almost all of us have attempted to avoid confronting these problems.
