Silvia Latham has strong professional ethics, great awareness and respect for the uniqueness of people and a deep trust in the inner capacities of every human being. Her philosophy is simple and clear: persistence and determination, combined with clarity of ideas and inner wisdom lead to positive results.

'As human beings, we are all involved in different kinds of relationships with ourselves and others, and all these relationships test our personal solidity, that is our ability to be in harmony with ourselves and others and to follow our intuitions and aspirations at the same time.

There are times when we feel shattered and we have no hopes and we don't see a way out. There are also times when we live as survivors and just wait for something to happen that will make us change. And that time could be weeks, months or years.

What I offer are tools to become independent and break the negative patterns of self-exhaustion, dependency on external events and passivity on the way to inner wisdom.

We all need help if we want to succeed.

It is a matter of taking responsibility for our own growth, having the determination to change and to acquire the appropriate tools to achieve it. After that, all we need is practice, practice and practice until we manage ourselves in full awareness and freedom. It is a matter of connecting with that determination, becoming stubborn for our own growth and being disciplined with those tools of change. We do this until the new is easily integrated into us and into our unconscious awareness'.
