“Knowing oneself comes from attending with compassionate curiosity to what is happening within.”
For a long time I have been drawn to supporting people with the difficulties and challenges that life can bring. Whether it's helping someone to get back on their feet after an unexpected setback or working together on lifelong patterns. Through my work I have come to strongly believe that the origins of problematic patterns and challenging relationships stem from unmet core emotional needs in childhood. Read more in Experience.

"Sally is an amazingly attuned, understanding, responsive, compassionate and flexible professional. We have been so fortunate in having secured her services and I can't imagine going through the difficulties we did without her. At a time when no one else understood the school difficulties we were encountering, Sally did and worked tirelessly and comprehensively to assist the school environment to make the necessary changes to meet normal and natural needs of my little one. Her advocation for a child centred school approach led to positive changes in the school setting. I could not be happier with the professional and most importantly extremely caring service we have received." ~ Jen
