Supportive Care for Healing

supportive.care_.group_.main_.jpg"Healing is an intentional process by which a human being is motivated to accept their authentic life, through the exploration of internal thoughts, feelings, physical and spiritual connections – in a non-judgmental way and in a trusting environment. As a result of this acceptance, meaning and purpose transform suffering and the individuals perception is that life’s harmony and integrity are restored."
