Robert J. Grimes
Hi, I’m Robert J. I have been in counselling for over 10 years, and in the last 6 years I’ve specialised helping couples using EFT – Emotionally Focused Therapy, Imago and Gottman teachings, plus my own 20+ years of wisdom and experience.
I work with the ‘couple emotional energy’ as a whole as there is a delicate balance of dynamics that play out in an intimate love relationship. What this means for you is, I don’t take sides.
Hi, I’m Foxxy… I help women grow in self-esteem, self-love and self-worth. I help you have greater confidence in yourself by loving and accepting all of who you are, so you can easily move through any difficult situation you may find yourself in.
My speciality is helping women connect into their body, integrate their emotions and strengthen their intuition, so they can make choices from a place of empowerment, rather than from reaction.
