Integrative General Counselling Approach

Unique, Proven Effective Therapy

Reasons for seeking counselling are many, but commonly because life is affected in some way. Your concern is valid. When we hurt, we want relief. Whether it’s the first, or tenth time seeking counselling, we want value that delivers results.

Wisdoms of Mind and Body

When we feel our worst, it can be hard to imagine we are capable.

Beginning with Talk Therapy, getting to know one another in an atmosphere of safety and building trust, information and therapy options provide criteria to make informed decisions and a platform from which to proceed with specialized focussed therapies.

Greater results are possible combining Counselling with gentle Somatic (Body) Psychology Therapies that include Mindful Embodiment, Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT). Somatic Touch, among others.

Proven Effective, Somatic Experiencing Therapy developed by Dr. Peter Levine leads the field of Body Psychology and Trauma Therapy. Clinical research and findings in neuroscience, estimates that over 80% of counselling clients continue with unresolved issues because of body-held memory that remains untreated by talk therapy alone.

Working with body memory as well as the mind, we are empowered through techniques that regulate emotions and body sensations. This scientifically developed therapy naturally recognizes the wisdom of the entire person to heal the self.
