Lori-Ann Wesley View Specialties

For over 20 years, I have worked with my clients by going beyond traditional "counselling", which is usually limited to "talk therapy".

I am focused on working at a deeper level with my clients using Somatic (body) therapies that work with body, mind, spirit, emotions and behaviour through the sub-conscience. This approach allows one to bypass the limited conscience mind to work with root-causes and achieve true healing more effectively with less effort in less time.

To be the best possible you, it is necessary to release old wounds and transform what isn't working. Growth and empowerment come from increasing self-awareness and making healthier, more aware choices.

It is my honour to assist you in making positive changes through life changing holistic and eclectic work at the deepest levels of consciousness that create a healthier, happier way of living.

My approach to psychotherapy is integrative, holistic, eclectic. This means I believe it often takes a variety of different approaches and techniques to facilitate healing, change and growth.

I work with adults (18 plus), to help with the issues that get in the way
of living life well, free and peacefully.

Life Transitions

By using this combination of "talk" therapy and other body based psychotherapy methods, you can connect with and use your body’s natural resources to integrate body, mind and spirit and emotions to overcome issues that are in the way of living your life to the fullest.

You become a witness/participant in what wants to happen naturally where you move into your most authentic response, and release old habitual reactions to learn how to live a vibrant, full life.

Your body houses your life story, your feelings and beliefs; it is an integral part of your healing process. Unacknowledged feelings from past experiences are stored in your body and then unconsciously have a powerful effect on who you are, how you behave, and how you feel about yourself.

Using the body as the gateway to awareness, buried feelings and memories can surface, freeing you from old patterns and energy blocks that keep you feeling stuck and unable to live life to its fullest. Your mind may avoid certain emotions and memories, but your body remembers it all.
