The stuff of life can be found in our relationships.

Our most precious capacity as humans is to connect with one another in meaningful ways.

Being seen, heard, appreciated, respected, loved, accepted, celebrated, and offering the same in return truly make up the qualities of a life worth living.

Sometimes interruptions to feeling good occur in relationships.

Often feelings are uncomfortably familiar, like you're repeating unhealthy behaviour and attracting the same problems despite attempts to stop.

Over and again conflict, misunderstanding and disappointment cycle through the weeks and years, interfering with fundamental contentment and happiness.

What to do?

This intensive exploratory workshop unveils the specific sources of your unconscious patterns.

You actually discover the blueprint that is unconsciously influencing your relationship beliefs and communication style.

Literally look at:

  • where your beliefs came from
  • what you unconsciously believe
  • how you are maintaining attitudes that interfere with your true expression of love and caring.

Proven Expressive Art exercises are specifically designed to reveal insight and clarity into your unconscious relationship patterns.

No artistic skills are necessary for amazing results!

This visual component powerfully transcends the limitations of words resulting in a new way of hearing. It's simply amazing.

Through your creations you SEE:

  • what interferes with your capacity to understand and be understood by another.
  • which assumptions clutter your journey to joyful, healthy connections.
  • how the hidden past messes with your NOW.

Partners can finally SEE:

  • what their loved one honestly believes,
  • behind the words that have lost meaning over the years of repetition,
  • clearly into the source of misunderstandings and disappointments.

Being truly CONSCIOUS in your relationships is your path to feast on the sweetest stuff of life

When your partnership is not working as well as you'd like it is worth seeking professional help and attention.

What is more important than the health of your most intimate relationship?

Investing in your happiness is far less than maintaining a car, putting on a wedding, going on a honeymoon, and a fraction of an avoidable or unpleasant divorce.

You are SO worth it!!

GESTALT THERAPY is a psychotherapy. Gestalt means whole in German. Gestalt therapy came about in the 1950's as part of the Human Potential Movement. It is an accessible, practical psychotherapy that encourages self-acceptance and self-support.

At its core is an interest in how, not why, we choose to limit our awareness.

By exploring the emotions, feelings and perceptions of the present moment, Gestalt therapy heightens awareness to behaviour patterns. This is the first step in therapeutic change.

Those who practice Gestalt therapy develop an awareness of the excitement and immediacy of being fully present in the moment, which fosters an ability to respond authentically.

This leads people to be open to more appropriate choices previously unconsidered, rather than continuing with habitual behaviour.

The result is an evolution towards living a more meaningful and authentic life.


Clients without creative experience are constantly amazed at how much they enjoy expressing themselves with colour and texture.

Most participants are pleasantly surprised by the depth and relevance of what they learn from their creations.

Creative self-expression comes from your spirit, your soul and during these sessions your TRUE SELF gets a chance to talk to you, revealing valuable insight and perspective on what's really going on inside.

When you are creatively expressive, your head takes a vacation and your heart has a voice. It's to that voice we give our undivided attention.

Laila Ghattas expertly helps you decipher the message you are sending yourself.

You can literally see what's going on inside your emotional life as we explore your creations together as a group. Accelerated awareness and integration follow


Reiki, specifically the Usui System of Natural Healing, is a Japanese form of hands on healing. Reiki means Universal Life Force.

Clients lie fully clothed on a massage table. They gently receive universally available healing energy which is accessed from the crown of the head and transferred through the hands of the practitioner. Hands are gently and intuitively placed in turn on the torso and head.

Reiki is body work that promotes awareness of how and where emotions are stored in the body.

Through heightened awareness and release of these old emotions, you are left with more space to incorporate healing ways and choices in your life and perspective.
