Saleema Eileen Giltinan, B.Sc., MA

Saleema’s counselling approach starts from the premise that none of us are “broken”, none of us “need to be fixed”.  Saleema works with children, youth and adults from the stand point that we are all whole and complete right now, fully equipped to handle whatever comes our way.  She understands, however, that knowing this does not mean everything is easy, and for that reason, she works with her clients to help them realize the strength, courage and love that are theirs to access. 

Saleema shows people how they are already using their innate intuition to problem solve. Then, she helps them to expand and deepen their intuitive skills.

“There is great wisdom in Hamlet’s statement, “there is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.” Understanding this idea relieves stress and promotes well being.  Let us ponder this together as I teach how to apply it to the daily challenges we face.”
