Reconnect With Yourself Through Change

​Feel empowered and have the support, resources and tools to improve your mental health, relationships in life and career. You will gain clarity on what needs to change and you will have the strength to walk away from a relationship or job that is no longer serving you or helping you grow.

There are many reasons to see a Holistic Counsellor and Psychotherapist, this varies for each person's individual needs. 

Here are some examples: 

  • You're feeling Anxious in your life

  • Relationship breakdowns

  • Reoccurring challenges in your life, such as career, relationships, and health

  • Addiction (drugs, alcohol, food, shopping, etc..)

  • Loss and grief

  • Career direction

  • Conflict in your relationships and at work

  • Feeling depressed

  • Burnout

  • Workplace stress

  • Process unresolved trauma

Inner Work 

In our sessions we will build your emotional strength through bringing awareness to what upsets, triggers or frustrates you and how it impacts your life. We will also identify what you need to regulate your nervous system, so that you can feel emotionally safe and secure with making changes in your life. The inner work builds your emotional strength enabling you to make changes in your life that feel hard or impossible. 

Outer Work 

Identify and create a plan to attain the resources you need to help you feel confident in the changes you would like to make. Whether that's financial, community or any practical resources that will help support you. 

Action  

With the awareness you gain from the inner and outer work we do together, you will feel more empowered to take action. This will bring new opportunities and outcomes into your life.

​The modality I work with is called Process Oriented Psychology, also known as Process Work. It is a holistic psychotherapeutic approach that helps you bring awareness to many areas of your life.  This method helps you develop personal awareness and identify thoughts, emotions, and experiences that may negatively affect your everyday life. While process work is often used to help individuals manage internal conflicts in a healthy way, its principles can also be used to promote leadership skills or resolve social conflicts between small and large groups of people.    ​​

Owning our story and loving ourselves through that process is the bravest thing that we’ll ever do.

Client Feedback

Why did you choose to work with me?

 

The holistic practice you offered suited my style and needs both in my need for therapy/healing and life change.

I also felt safe with you.

 

How did working with me benefit you?

 

Opened my thinking to explore my behaviours in different ways. Gave me a deeper understanding about my body's physical response to trauma and stressors.

 

How can you use what you have learnt in your everyday life?

 

I am putting it into practise most days. Following my vision for the life I'm creating. Acknowledging and listening to my body in response to stress. Feeling more empowered by my choices and less worried about others opinions of how I live.

I've already met the most wonderful groups of diverse like minded people.

Thank you, you are an inspiration Thelma.

After 4 Sessions Working With Me 

 

"The one on one sessions really focussed on my needs and concerns. You helped me address feelings and beliefs that were holding me back from moving forward. It was like you gently removed a veil that was obscuring my view of the world.

I have been shown a positive direction to move forward into. I’m armed with strategies and tools to use when feelings or situations present that have the potential to block my progress. You also showed me how to accept certain feelings that are ok to feel and also how to use them to my advantage.

I have a greater understanding of the values that are most important to me and how to build on the strength I have to make them a focus in my life. I understand that identifying goals is important for my personal and professional growth and satisfaction and I can achieve and have anything if I allow myself to.

After 1 Session.

"I found Thelma’s questions not only interesting and engaging, but was also asked questions I had never been asked before, including being asked by myself. Of particular note, was Thelma pointing out a particular habit/technique I use to heal myself emotionally and or physically. It is something I have previously not noticed that I did. This will give me cause for much attention and reflection. My time with Thelma was enlightening, seamless and constructive.

On Thelma’s suggestion, I can use this technique in stressful situations at work. This something I feel will be something of real value and utility for me.  "
