Experience & Areas of Interest

As we navigate the multiple roles our busy lives demand, we can feel overwhelmed or uncertain. To assist people with overcoming obstacles and fears, Karolina’s gentle holistic approach works particularly well with a range of issues including: Anxiety, Stress, Low self-esteem, Confidence issues, Relationship issues, and life changes and transitions. She believes that healing is about letting go of everything that isn’t you. The process of healing involves letting go of energy blocks; letting go of mental blocks and letting go of anything that stands in the way of your highest contribution.
