Michael McLinnIntegrative psychotherapist
In the right environment we remain whole, uninhibited and naturally driven towards the fulfilment of our desires and potential.
Other people’s agendas and painful events in our lives can separate us from this forward motion and better judgement. This can manifest mentally, bodily, emotionally and even dynamically in our careers, habits and close relationships.
Creating the right environment together; Michael works with clients to take an honest look at those emotions and dynamics, putting the unwanted ones back where they belong and ultimately helping his clients get back on track.
