The Journey Starts from Within
I have 14 yrs. experience in all areas of counselling, and have extensive qualifications and training in various professional courses. 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.
Journey In Counselling, is my vision to empower you to become free from all your limitations, fears, wounds, and old patterns of thinking, feeling and reacting to situations and events that may feel out of your control, or issues that have been unresolved. 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.
Clients often report feeling lighter, empowered, revitalised, and more emotionally available to meet their own and their loved ones' needs. Through a deeper understanding of themselves, they are able to feel a sense of choice and freedom over their lives.
I am passionate about being of service to humanity to promote healing, growth, evolution and transformation. Life is a journey, and we have all experienced at some time or another, various tragedies, hurts, adversities, separation, life changes, neglect or abuse, and emotional wounds. I too have experienced pain, loss, trauma and hardship. I have had many deaths of loved ones, and all the other curve balls that life throws at us. This has been the catalyst for my own personal growth, and has ignited my devotion to self-mastery and supporting others to grow.
Adversity can be an opportunity for healing of old wounds, leading to transformation, self-love and extraordinary growth.
Life is 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 explore what lies within, without judgement, and to live a life of inner freedom 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

Change is inevitable, transformation and evolution is a choice and imagination is the key!
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."
"Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution."
