Philosophy


There are two reasons why people come into counselling: enough love for self and others or too much pain. Personal learning and growth are courageous acts of people who want to become better people, better partners and and better parents. Growth in counselling requires both a deep knowledge of the human sciences and lots of practice of the required skills: my desire, as a counsellor, is to work with each client to seize the opportunity!!! Seize the day!!!!
