We must first have a healthy relationship with ourselves before we can have a healthy relationship with others

"Marika has an amazing ability to hold the space, read what is truly going on and reflect and discuss what is needed, in a loving and supportive manner. Her support over the past few years has been invaluable and I highly recommend what she offers and brings to others."
