_As a student and practitioner of
relational psychotherapy I believe that the key to happiness and
contentment in life lies in our relationships with others. Understanding our relationship history, including our families of origin, as well as learning to recognize and honour how we feel, helps us to develop a deeper
understanding of ourselves in connection with others. Intrinsic to this approach is a deep respect for each individual's particular reality and an appreciation of the social realities that impact their lives, such as race, class, gender and sexual difference. My personal
experience is that working with a therapist to explore these themes in your life will help you unlock the key to real and
lasting enjoyment of life.
