We cannot change the past, but we can change the way the body holds the past.
— Peter Levine

Body-centred / Somatic Counselling

As a counsellor I will meet you wherever you need to be met.  I offer deep listening, wholeheartedness and straight talk.  Intuitively listening to and witnessing the body as the holder of all information both past and present.  My approach combines the inter-relatedness of body, mind and spirit.

The body has a story to tell that is, in a sense, below the mind.  I support clients to slow down and notice sensations in the body, which hold information related to the story and presenting issues in life.  The word somatic refers to the body, experienced from within.  Somatic counselling is an effective way to access implicit memory stored within the body’s nervous system to work towards trauma resolution. Wounds received through past relationship can be best resolved through healthy relationships. I practice psychotherapy with a psycho-dynamic approach to healing relationships.

Couples Counselling

Being in romantic relationship is a process that touches on our deepest attachment imprints.  I offer couples counselling sessions that include relationship coaching as well as useful information about identifying attachment patterns in each individual and how to nurture the relationship to encourage secure, loving attachment.  A love relationship is like a flower that needs tending.  Or it can be considered a fireplace that needs loving care and attention.  Working with attachment styles brings the art of tending a love relationship into the realm of a living, sacred science.

In-person sessions are held at my office in Nelson, BC.
