For Prospective Clients

An Invitation

Many people come to therapy at exactly moment when they have been stripped to the core of their emotional, physical or spiritual being. One element that they seek and often feel they have lost is hope. Their current situation prevents them from fully embracing their life as a source of inspiration and energy. We understand the gravity of this moment and your choice to move towards changing your life.

Therapy is personal and intimate. Seeking therapy, which involves a deep opening to the world inside you, is highly vulnerable and requires courage. At Life Design Centre, we believe in the beauty and healing power of relationships. Our aim is to create a therapeutic experience for you that is one of growth, expansion and connection to yourself and others.
