Admitting one's struggle can be difficult. Reaching out for support is even harder. Finding an adequate support for your need is the first step of your healing journey towards self awareness, growth and realization. I am passionate about facilitating a safe and supportive space for personal exploration.

Bianca is incredibly kind and compassionate.
Bianca has been so supportive, caring and patient during our whole time counseling, she shed some light on life issues which needed to be addressed. I know the road of life is a bumpy one, with highs and lows, but thanks to Bianca, I have a lot of tools now to continue in the path of becoming a better self.
After working with Bianca for a couple of months now, I am doing so much better. She made me realise the true reasons behind some of the issues I have and we are working together to overcome them. She is very supportive and helps to ask the right questions and find the right tools.
She's amazing, intuitive and a great listener.
Bianca is excellent. She is non-judgmental, patient, and supportive. I knew that I needed to seek help and I'm glad I chose Bianca because I already feel like I am making meaningful progress.
