I believe in your inner resources to heal and step onto a new path, in your own way. I offer my services in confidence, as a compassionate witness on your journey of healing.

Usually counselling is a process of gently revealing layers to be witnessed, understood and released. These layers could form in childhood or more recently from traumas in adult life. Many of us, as children, experienced various hurts that developed into emotional patterns that hinder us consciously and unconsciously. Part of my role is to help you sort out who you are now, from what may have happened in the past.

I want to discover with you — your own way of telling your story, to make it safe to look at what needs healing. I will help you to emerge with a clearer, fuller picture of who you truly are and how you choose to make your life more rewarding than it is now.

During our sessions, I will gently encourage you to be true to yourself and your own direction, as you explore your issues, whether they are personal or relate to views that may differ from mainstream culture. At times, I may suggest you pause to sense your body or your breath, as a way to help deepen a connection with the moment and your deepest self.

Breath and sensing help us get in touch with our bodies, facilitating the healing journey and making it more rewarding. As you go deeper, I will continue to reflect back to you your own truth, thereby helping you clarify what is most important to you.

My training and experience includes psychological, sexual, cultural, and spiritual dimensions of human growth and potential. LGBTQ friendly, polyamory friendly, climate-aware. Psychology and spirit are deeply connected: I have witnessed my own and others’ healing coming through the heart, the body and the spirit.

“I wanted to thank you for your compassionate and insightful counselling, leading me to new perspectives on difficult issues. You’ve helped me find new ways of changing or coping with situations, but you’ve also drawn out and reinforced the positive things I’m already doing to cope. I walk away feeling good about how I’m doing, as well as feeling like I have more tools to help deal with ongoing issues. Thank you Olivia!” – Counselling Client
