Pain needs to be witnessed, heard, expressed and release.
If the pain is not addressed, it may show up in your life through anxiety, depression, anger, resentment, and shame.
Talk therapy: Emphasizes the importance of the client speaking to the therapist as the main means of expressing thoughts, feelings and resolving issues. Sharing our story is a crucial part of therapy; without the exploration of our feelings, we cannot strip away the layers of our hurt, pain and suffering; healing rests at the core of our being. Telling our story is an attempt to release ourselves from our hurt from the past. We tell our stories to transform ourselves; to learn about ourself and from our past history - to grow and evolve and to make a difference in our world.
Inner-Child work: It is about developing a relationship with one self. It is about healing from our past/childhood to be able to move forward in the here and now. It involves an exploration of understanding the past of how our upbringing might have impacted us on a physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual level.
Sub-personality dialogue: One of the goals of Sub-personality dialogue is to explore the dynamics of the false selves; Sub-personalities are created from our need for survival, coping, protecting and to meet our basic needs, such as love, security, belonging, acceptance.
Focusing therapy: One of the key characteristics of Focusing is sensation of bodily release; it is about listening to what comes from within, centering on the body-sensed inside, which has deep meaning.
2-chair work: The goal of the 2-chair work is to raise awareness and create change in the "here an now." The dialogue challenges the client to share their thoughts and feelings, increasing their awareness and developing a stronger ability to face any stressful situation with control and to get meaningful understanding of the problem.
Chakra work: The chakra system is the map to the human soul, to our inner-world and voice. It acts as a bridge between mind, body and spirit. The goal of Chakra work is to clear blockages, gain better understanding of our inner-world. Our body constantly tries to return to peace and harmony; its natural state of balance. Energy can get stuck in our body. Chakra energy work can help to release, balance, and transfer energy; when our energy flows in harmony we discover a greater sense of ease, peace and flexibility in our body and life.
Body-psychotherapy: It is based on the concept that people experience the world not only through their thoughts and emotions but also through their bodies. This approach works from body to mind; helping to gain awareness of thoughts, feelings and body experiences and how they are interconnected; helping to become aware of how tensions in the body are related to our thinking and feeling patterns, such as worry, fear, resentment, anger and frustration.
Reiki for emotional healing: Reiki means Universal life force; energy in motion; it is an ancient hands-on healing technique, that can calm the nervous system, helping to restore a sense of balance and over all well-being. It promotes deep relaxation; strengthen the immune system; improve the power and quality of our internal energy; evoking a greater sense of peace and harmony within the entire body and mind.
As long as I can remember I wanted to become a counsellor. No matter who would come to me, I was always willing to help. I wrote Courageous Butterfly as an inspiration for those living in fear, distress and depression. I wanted to make an impact with my story. I noticed that I touched a common thread with people who have similar life challenges. People began to reach out to me. I received hundreds of emails, most of them were words of gratitude for having the courage to write about my vulnerabilities and recovery. These emails reinforced my strong desire to become a therapist. I know in my heart that it’s my true life purpose. There is nothing else that drives me more than wanting to help others to recognize their own power and potential. I am so happy to share that I have completed my master's level program in spiritual psychotherapy at the Transformational Arts College in Toronto. I am now offering holistic counselling at a reasonable rate. My focus is on the mind/body/spirit connection; the whole being; integration.
