If I could give you one key, and one key only to more abundant life, I would give you a sense of your own worth, an unshakeable sense of your own dignity as one grounded in the source of the cosmic dance, as one who plays a unique part in the unfolding of the story of the world…

People say..............

Joni is known for her “creativity, incisive problem solving, astute perceptions in complex, delicate or entrenched issues.  Many “have benefited enormously from Joni’s understanding of the human condition”...  “have felt safe, when needing to feel safe” …felt  “heard when no one else was listening” and “challenged when I wanted to move ahead but didn’t know how”, “She helped us to surpass our expectations of improvement”.

“I was in a very dark hole and even though I knew I needed professional help I was a bit reluctant and wary to start a new counselling relationship.  Joni is very gentle, allows and values you to be yourself and allows the time it needs for healing.  She is very patient  – understands there will be steps back as well as forward – saved my sanity especially in introducing me to some helpful concepts.  Joni helped me understand and value ALL my parts – even the ones I’d rather not acknowledge and had certainly not liked.  She could give me the nudge or challenge I sometimes needed to look at things from a different point of view.”
