Message to clients

Does the feeling of loneliness permeate itself throughout all you do? Perhaps it manifests itself as feeling alone amongst a group of friends, or through the experience of being “functional” day to day while knowing you’re not meeting your utmost potential. Resentment breeds as your friends and family do not understand and tell you to “look at the positives”. It’s a struggle that can make it feel like no matter what you try, what self-help books you read, what advice you get from friends and family - something just isn’t clicking and holds you back.

Taking up the existential challenge of confronting these feelings is the most courageous step you can take. Seeking help, seeking some form of recognition can be the homebase from which you explore, challenge, and change your life - the friendships that no longer make you feel valued, the negative voice in your head that says things will never change. These are things we can work on to build confidence and make you feel good again.

When you are ready to face your feelings, I am ready to help you. Send me an email so we can schedule our first session and get you on the path to your greatest well-being.
