What people say

Working with Rita I found a new perspective through her eyes. I felt heard and seen and moved, in a deeply connected way which offered up a safe space something new to arise with in me. BVR

I have worked with Rita in varying capacities for over 15 years. She has consistently shown precision, profound results, heart felt kindness & care, commitment and full givenness.  Rita pours herself into all that she does and gives and gives and gives. You will be deeply grateful for having chosen to work with Rita!


I have had the opportunity of seeing Rita in both a personnel and group setting. I appreciated her high degree of awareness and sensitivity. She meets each individual where they are at , with out judgement. Her warm demeanour and ability to laugh at herself relaxes all those around her. Allowing me to Look at my own beliefs, patterns and judgements, and to process these my own way and pace. I would recommend Rita for anyone seeking counselling or wanting to explore the diversity of family constellations as Rita  has the ability to reach people from the Heart.  Wendy                                                      

We, my wife Alice, me, and our 4 teenage kids, booked several sessions with Rita and benefitted very much. Her character is loving, caring, intelligent, and competent. Her abilities to help us see and dissolve unconscious family patterns are incredible and we did experience her as a very extraordinary therapist. Therapy with Rita is awesome since it is always really good to open up to a knowledgeable loving therapist who can support you to solve your problems much better. From what I know about Rita is that she did a magical job in our Family Constellations. I highly recommend her work.

Rita holds a space that is actually a living field. The field holds the knowledge of what needs to be spoken, of what needs to be let go of and what needs to be stepped into. She so naturally knows how to read this field and kindly, intimately deliver it’s messages to you, bringing grace and deep healing.


"I have seen Rita for a Family Constellation at pivotal points in my life over many years and always found them insightful, rich and beneficial. Rita has a kind, warm, non-judgemental presence."  Tim
