Take the Readiness for Growth Questionnaire


At the heart of Awaken Therapy is the desire for a better world – a world anchored in love, harmony and compassion.

We all strive for a world where trauma doesn’t dictate our future, where everyone can achieve their full potential, and families nurture new generations to thrive. At Awaken Therapy, we believe this is not only a possibility, but a reality within our grasp.

I understand that confronting painful experiences can be challenging, but you don’t need to face them alone. From feelings of anxiety, sadness, anger and depression to deeper challenges like unresolved traumas – I’m here to guide, support, and empower you.

Your goals, whether they’re to live more authentically, reach your potential, reduce anxiety, or heal past wounds, will find a nurturing, compassionate space here.

My approach to psychotherapy is holistic, combining psychological methodologies, clinical hypnotherapy, spiritual traditions from East and West, practical experience and professional intuition.

In this post-Covid world of high stress and long waiting lists, you deserve to have access to powerful, effective tools, techniques and supportive care, in timely and affordable ways.

I offer individual and couples counselling sessions, group therapy circles, online courses, books and audio programs, and uplifting spiritual art.

Are you ready to heal and awaken to your true potential? Let's embark on this transformative journey together.
