The Journey Starts from Within

 

Welcome! 

 

I have 14 yrs. experience in all areas of counselling, and have extensive qualifications and training in various professional courses. I have worked with thousands of clients over the years from various diverse backgrounds and issues. My experience in counselling refers to relationship issues, individual and couple therapy, families, addictions, trauma, grief/loss, mental/emotional health issues, self-esteem, life changes, to name a few. 

With a tertiary qualification in Behavioural Social Science, a Postgraduate Diploma in Gestalt Psychotherapy, and Certifications in various professional development courses and energy healing modalities, I draw on diverse therapeutic approaches to promote growth & transformation.

Counselling and Energy Clearing is a process that helps unblock stored emotions, old negative patterns of thinking and behaving, renew attachment bonds, and helps to eliminate excessive over thinking, stress, distress or numbness. My vision is to help you set intentions for yourself that are aligned with your values, purpose and desires.

Life can be difficult and experiences can be painful, but it doesn't have to break you or your spirit; and we can view painful experiences as an opportunity to learn and grow from them.

 

Most of us have all had various tragedies, hurts, adversities, separation, death of loved ones, life challenges, trauma, and neglect. I too, have experienced hardship. I lost family members to cancer, addiction, and other tragedies. While painful, it motivated me to heal my past, and ignited my devotion to  self-mastery, and to support others to heal, grow and become liberated from their past pain.

Life doesn't have to be a struggle or of suffering. Life can be beautiful and a gift and yet it is short. Is NOW the time to let go of the old, to make way for the newer more joyful, fearless, abundant, and more improved and expanded version of you?

I believe that once we have a clearer understanding of our subconscious or shadow parts, we can choose to align more with our true essence and authentic Self. As we take emotional risks and move out of our comfort zones of familiarity, we start to awaken an inner strength, passion, playfulness, curiosity, compassion and fearlessness. I propose that once we start to work on ourselves, we start to see we have choice, develop our gifts and talents, and tap into our own infinite wisdom. We start to release the false parts of ourselves, and remember who we truly are, and decide to let go of that which no longer serves us. 

 

My vision is to take you on a journey inside, notice what's important to you, and identify the vulnerabilities that may have been hidden in the shadows. I aim to help you identify the road blocks that stop you from actualising your purpose and desires, and stop you from creating genuine and deeper connections. Is it time to take time out for yourself, and to become the you, you were truly meant to be? To set clear intentions for your life, and to explore what lies within, without judgement in order to live a life of creation, inner freedom, self-actualisation and abundance?

 

Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.

Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.

- C.G. Jung

We don't respond to what happens, we respond to our perception of what happens.

Our perceptions & beliefs shape our reality.

Once we understand the origin, we then can choose something more empowering, and  liberate ourselves, shedding light   on   the "shadow" or subconscious . 

"We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world."

-Buddha 

 

"Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution."

- Albert Einstein
