"Positive change for life is about sustainable well-being and contentment. 
We can achieve this when we commit to self-awareness, learn and practice new tools, and then utilize these invaluable new skills in every area of our daily lives.
Positive change for life means
life that supports Life: living vitally, balancing love, work, and play, and sustaining our own well-being as we contribute to the well-being of others and our planet"


Working with  people in multiple capacities

Here's what they say 

I trust Mrs. Knuts with my LIFE, as well as my husband’s life and my two children’s lives.  My work with Mrs. Knuts was transformative; I now have a positive balance in the areas of love, work and play. I am happy.  


15 years of psychoanalytic counseling with Mrs. Knuts has taught me how to look at various life problems, which arise, as they will, with an understanding of their deep origins. This understanding makes me more compassionate to myself as well as to others. I also have tools to use when dealing with difficult people or difficult situations, and this has changed my life for the better.”
