Sessions were always invaluable. A time where we’d have frank conversations about the issues I brought to the table. Her experience and down to earth approach made for open honest chats and these helped me no end, both at work and outside of work.

What Rumina’s clients say
Can I use private health insurance?
Yes… if you have health insurance you can speak to them to get a code. If you give them the name of your Therapist of choice they will give you a code. If you fill in the code when booking we will bill your insurer for your sessions.
You can’t pay for LifeCoaches or your membership subscription with your health insurance… sorry.
