De Vuurproef?

When I fell ill with burnout, I needed someone who could relate to me and would not judge me for what I was going through. A person who wasn’t afraid to challenge me when I fell back into my old patterns and behaved in ways which were holding me back. Someone who accepted me as I was, so that I could more easily accept myself. Deciding to become that person for others helped me become that person for myself. I invite you to have a look round my website and see how my experience can help you.
