“My wife and I had been growing farther and farther apart.We’d basically stopped communicating and all we seemed to do was argue. Roberta helped us identify the root of the problem and gain some insight, which has made a big difference. Our social life and our intimate life are much better already. Before we went to see Roberta it was like we were in a tug of war and each of us were at opposite ends of the rope. It was literally pulling our marriage apart. Now, we’re on the same side.We try to drag something else into the mud hole now – whatever’s against us.” – Steve,who along with his wife, had three months of counselling with Roberta

All of them deeply personal and highly individual. If you answer 'yes' to any of these questions, there’s a very good chance you’d benefit from therapy:

Do you feel sad or down in the dumps most of the time?
Do you continuously think you look old or unattractive?
Are you having fears of being alone, abandoned or criticized?
Do you feel like a victim of circumstance, without hope of overcoming your situation?
Do you feel overwhelmed and have to push yourself hard to do things?
Does a lack of self-esteem or confidence cause your career or personal relationships to suffer?
Are you and your spouse always arguing and feeling like you’re growing apart?
Are you haunted by memories of abuse?
Do you feel shameful or think you’re defective in some way?
Do you have difficulty forming relationships and maintaining them?

Therapy isn’t a quick fix. It’s a journey – and one where you do a lot of work. But I will help you make that journey, leading you towards greater self-awareness, understanding and self-acceptance.
