Spoonbills Right

Ratna can assist you to build up an inner tool-kit so you can identify & change what isn’t working in your life & your relationships. With self awareness, you will be able to observe any anxiety, fear or confusion, and learn to use what life gives you to create transformation & fulfilment.

Ratna offers you the experience of feeling deeply heard & respected. Her genuine, non-judgmental guidance & support helps you learn to receive, relax & trust more.

Often the obstacles we face in life contain within them the very building blocks we need to form a stronger & more purposeful self. With help you can learn how to turn obstacles into opportunities.

Counselling gently explores what appears to be holding you back i.e. limiting out-dated beliefs/traumas. When you learn how to identify how limiting beliefs form in your life, there is increased choice & ability to change and live your full potential.

Counselling/Therapy Approach

Ratna is trained in Psychosynthesis, a form of psycho-spiritual/transpersonal psychology. She can help you to know yourself better; to differentiate & understand more what is going on on all levels: body, feelings, mind & spirit. She guides you to establish an embodied, grounded, effective way of being in practical everyday life. The process also supports you to grow spiritually. In confidential, caring & relational ways, Ratna works within a holistic framework; understanding that we all have our own answers within. You will be given space, encouragement & guidance to explore & discover your own solutions.
