Body-centered counselling can help.
In order to heal as a whole it is imperative to work holistically, with your body, mind, and spirit.
Struggles and trauma are not solely part of our cognitive process. We all hold memories and trauma within our bodies. Most of us learn to disregard the signals our bodies send us. Often this process starts at a young age as a way to survive and navigate our experiences. Disregarding the signals our body sends can become habitual until a symptom becomes bothersome enough for us to desire change.
In body-centered counselling, awareness is brought to the physical expression of your body in support of learning how to be sensitive to your body's messages. Our sessions will unfold organically, ensuring you receive healing at the level and pace that most honours you in the here and now.
Together we will bring a new level of awareness of your entire being – body, mind & spirit. You will learn the tools needed to reconnect to your body, and release yourself from old patterns, allowing you the opportunity to experience life with trust, freedom, and satisfaction.

Collective Needs When I was in school we were exploring our individual needs and how they influence our capacity to both give and receive in compassionate ways. The discussion turned from individual needs to a curiosity about a collective need that we all hold. We mutually agreed that universally we desire and need connection – […]
