what We offer
what we heal
Our expertise is in trauma and relationships, including the relationship we learn to develop with ourselves.
"That's in the past" they say.
But what happens when your past is playing out in your present? And threatening to destroy your future? What if there is life after trauma?
Relationships with Others
"Relationships are hard" they say. But what if they don't have to be this hard?
What if you could feel heard, safe, and seen in relationship?
Relationship with Yourself
"Love yourself" they say.
But what if positive thinking feels like lying and only makes you feel worse?
What if, instead, you could start to see yourself in a different light?
All parts of you are welcome
We believe there are no "bad" parts of you. Some parts of you hold pain and other parts of you have come up with clever strategies for surviving pain to keep you (more or less) functional in the world. Unlike some therapies you might have tried, we don’t try to change you or shame you into behaving differently. Instead, we try to understand what's happening for you, heal the underlying pain, and figure out, together, what feels true you who you are inside. In our experience, when people are no longer in pain and feel more able to offer themselves unconditional love and acceptance, they feel safer, more grounded, and no longer feel the need to protect themselves in the same way.
What to Expect
We've had a call and decide we're a fit. YAY! So now what?
2 / Explore and Gain Insight
Get to know yourself in a different way. Understand what's really driving your behaviour or mood. Get in touch with what you need to feel fulfilled, confident, and at ease.
We go at your pace. We will always ask you if it's okay to explore whatever comes up. And if you're not ready, we won't! Period.
3 / Experience Genuine Healing and Change
Although insight is important, you may have already noticed it isn't the same as healing, and often isn't enough on its own to result in meaningful change.
We want to help you fully heal the painful feelings and beliefs that are holding you back. Empower you to find more loving ways of responding to yourself (and others). To finally experience the calm confidence of being able to trust yourself to make choices that honour your needs and boundaries.
