"We were put on this earth not just to survive, but to thrive. So what's stopping us? The truth is, we all have things that get in the way of our happiness: past traumas that need to be healed, ways of thinking and being in the world that no longer serve us. And that is where therapy comes in. The therapeutic relationship is like no other. It provides a space for you to truly be seen, supported and accepted, a place where your own natural capacity for healing can take over."
