Sure we can talk about disorders and diagnoses but for most of us that’s not what’s needed. Even someone with a formal diagnosis should not be defined by that label.

I will help you discover the emotionally painful places that hold you back from living a life of vitality. Then we will explore and identify personal values as a guide for future behaviour.
