"Real isn't how you are made,' said the Skin Horse. 'It's a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real." - Margery Williams Bianco, The Velveteen Rabbit

I believe that you give, and receive, a great gift when you choose to invest in learning about your Self - your thoughts, feelings and behavioural patterns, your fantasies, wishes and fears, the nuanced realities of your developmental history - and any discord therein.
This kind of learning makes use of an Other - someone you can ask to listen as you express your Self, and who can provide attention, perspective, collaboration, compassion, and patience in that listening - to support your finding of ways to hold it all together.
What you learn in this process can empower your creativity, helping you to make more informed decisions and pursue more authentic actions, in the effort to realize a life that, indeed, you want to live.
And when you consider your Self with respect in this way, you model and make space for others to do the same, enriching the world around you.
I consider it an honour to work in support of my clients, as artists and scientists, as parents and grown children, as relational partners, employees, and members of countless different communities, each through their own process of Self-discovery and Self-creation.
