Dream your life and live your dreams

I am a  positive and enthusiastic person, forever in search of truth and happiness. I believe in the immense potential of human beings and that every person is beautiful. In more than 30 years travelling the world I have met many people from different cultures and have learned a lot from them. I realised long ago that what makes people happy, more than anything else, is to be free. Everybody has the power to achieve whatever goals they can imagine and my role as a therapist is to help people know themselves in order to achieve them.
