We use the term Alchemy as a metaphor for emotional transformation. The goal of emotional alchemy is simply to isolate the problems you are experiencing and to contain them. You contain everything you need in order to heal and feel better.

Sessions focus on being a safe and non-judgemental space for you to open up and explore whatever is troubling you. We work together to acknowledge and finally dissolve these issues, replacing them with resilience and a more joyful way of being.
