About Christina

“I have always been fascinated by people and their stories and the journeys that we are all on. This fascination led me to study psychology at University and the rest is history or so they say.  I have been blessed to be able to listen and journey with many people over the years who have shared their deepest fears and joys with me. I believe that being able to reach out to others in times of great difficulty or distress is what makes us all human and binds us together. We need to recreate a sense of community and belonging where we can all be nurtured, cared for and in turn care for others”
