I believe psychotherapy is a place where you can come and be as you are, free to explore the fulness of yourself, a safe place to meet yourself. I will be there with you to provide the space and opportunity for change and improvement by giving voice to the areas of your life that have remained silent, to assist you in achieving a sense of authenticity and uniqueness. Through psychotherapy you can speak freely, without shame and fear and gradually within your own words another meaning forms and takes the pain and symptom with it. You don’t have to suffer isolatedand in silence, through the therapeutic work you would find the ways to overcome the inhibition and the barriers on your path toward well-being and success. when you start psychotherapy there is no reason for despair, you can set out a new path.”
