The purpose of all life is development. And every living thing has an inalienable right to develop as far as its power extends (*W. Wattles)


NLP stands for Neuro Linguistic Programming. NLP models and techniques help you to gain more insight into the ways you do things. Insight into those unconscious patterns is often enough to initiate change.


Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a form of psychological treatment that has been demonstrated to be effective for a range of problems, including depression, alcohol and drug use problems, eating disorders and other mental problems.


Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an extensively researched, effective psychotherapy method proven to help people recover from trauma and other distressing life experiences.


The Emotional Freedom Technique is a short and easy-to-remember method to bring positive changes in your life. It is part of Energetic Psychology and is a method to get rid of inhibitions, fears and other negative emotions.
