“Our wounds are often the openings into the best and most beautiful part of us.”
- David Richo, psychologist
We all carry wounds, big and small, which affect our inner wellbeing, our relationships, and our ability to engage with the world. By facing our own pain and suffering with compassion, we have the power to transform it into strength. Often, we cannot do this alone. Therapy is not a quick fix, but rather a journeying together to discover your own capacity for resilience, strength and healing into your deeper, truer self.
