Message to clients

Imagine life as a thrilling rollercoaster of emotions, where relationships bring both delight and challenges. It can sometimes feel like a delicate tightrope act, adapting to others' needs while fearing abandonment and doubting your self-worth. Mood swings, like wild twists and turns, can disrupt your daily journey.

Allow me to help you navigate these emotional highs & lows, by cultivating valuable skills to bring balance and harmony to your life. Let's nurture curiosity &embrace acceptance one session at a time.

I like to give interesting analogies to my clients which might resonate you and sometimes may feel like a bad dad joke. But together let's communicate what works for you and does't. Like anyone else I too am a work-in-progress.
