Depression and anxiety are treatable…
It’s time to take action. You don’t have to live with symptoms of low mood, poor sleep, irritability and fatigue which drain your confidence and ability.
On the outside your life might appear perfect to others, you work hard and have all the things to show for it – houses, cars, family and friends.
But on the inside you feel numb, or worse, overwhelmed, frustrated and anxious.
You may notice familiar, limiting patterns…
When you listen in to your inner dialogue, is it highly critical, demanding and unforgiving?
I had to really turn the volume up on this insidious self chatter in order to put a stop to it.
It was clear to me there were repetitive patterns playing out in my life and a story which I knew by heart! It certainly didn’t serve me but it seemed there was nothing I could do to change it…
Living like this made me feel small, powerless and fearful.
I needed to learn how to be kinder to myself and access the gifts I had buried.
I wanted to do more with my life but I was locked out of my own treasure.
Here’s How I Can Help & Support You
Let’s clarify what gets in the way of your happiness and contentment.
In a safe, contained and private space I will support you to identify familiar patterns and begin to change them. You will release old, familiar but unhelpful beliefs so that you can take those next exciting steps in life.
This process is gentle and collaborative.
You will develop more choice, build confidence and improve relationships, becoming more vibrant and alive.
Feel greater ease in relationship, and find your ability for self expression.
In group or on retreat you will build your capacity for warm, loving, joyful intimacy with friends, family and loved ones,
A facilitated group experience like this is an exceptional opportunity to build confidence, connection and creativity so that you can bring yourself to family, work and friends with an open heart.
Twenty years ago my life was a struggle. Small children, demanding work, little satisfaction in relationship. My own self-limiting belief system had me trapped in an unhappy place. I felt I had no choice in my own life! I had it all, I was a doctor, I had a beautiful family, I had travelled extensively and lived in three countries. I spoke fluent French! But inside I was at war with myself. I was never enough, never satisfied. I could not calm the puppy inside me.
Beginnings of change
I had enough. Something had to change. I needed to find the next step on a journey that would take me inwards, not outwards.
After four years of group process and writing a Literature review on shame, I stepped out into a new world. Now I choose my life, and with energy, authenticity, vitality and spontaneity, I am much more satisfied. I have learned to listen to the deeper yearnings of my heart and act on them as much as possible. I am alive to myself and creating my life.
Work with me
I have worked with hundreds of people as a doctor and a psychotherapist, helping them move beyond old stories and beliefs into lives of spontaneity, freedom and action which they choose for themselves. You can make this journey too! It is the greatest gift of freedom!
On The Vlog
I visited Melati first in 2016 and this is how Opening to Life retreat emerged from that experience.
I'm passionate about group therapy, here are the reasons it can be so much more powerful than individual work.
Do you feel numb and desensitised a lot of time? maybe you use social media or substances to stay numb. Well, there is a price to doing this and a way to stop.
