Psychotherapeutic Counselling

We see the world not as it is, but how we are.

Your “pain” is not the reason, is the effect. Understanding why is easier and faster if you share how you feel and what you think about it.

Making a change begins with making the decision.

Then the process of change follows and then… the results

Don’t be alone on this journey.


“I find it hard to open up, to talk to people especially about my feeling and my past secrets. It took few sessions with Adriana Talaba before I even give her anything she could work on ( and believe me there was a lot) I just could not say them . With this lady’s help she slowly and patiently worked through them with me. I am in a much better place for doing this. Just opening my mouth was a start, things I had kept to myself for years then dealing with grief just pushed me over the edge.”, Gail.

Adriana is a very knowledgeable and compassionate therapist. Her warm and caring personality really helped me to settle down quickly into the session and I trust her and truly recommend her services of emotional wellbeing.” L.L.
