About Inner Wisdom Expressive Arts and Counselling

 

My mission statement:

  • increasing self-awareness, self-discovery
  • giving a ‘voice’ to your deepest feelings, emotions and thoughts
  • enhancing creativity, imagination and problem solving abilities

 

What to expect in your sessions with me:

A typical therapy session lasts 60 minutes, once a week. A session would entail an initial conversation to clarify issues that are of concern, along with the integration of facilitated expressive arts. Specific issues may resolve themselves within a few sessions, or you may feel the need to explore challenges more deeply over a longer period of time– this requires patience with progress and an understanding that change takes time. But throughout this process, what is really important in a therapist is someone who is your personal cheerleader, someone who has your back and listens while honouring your individuality and uniqueness, and revels in your differences. Coming from a strength-oriented perspective, I look for the best in people and usually find it. With a never-ending enthusiasm for personal growth and the creation of healing opportunities, I am able to see possibility instead of limitations.

I believe counselling is about living, operating and working from the heart – you can count on me to be super passionate about people, and most importantly, about you and the challenges that you face. An inspired therapist helps inspire you to achieve greatness with a soft, gentle, warm and welcoming touch. Finding oneself through the art and discovering more of who you are is a cornerstone of my work with my clients.

I believe, and respect, that the best type of healing comes from within yourself. That goes regardless of your religion, your upbringing, your gender, your age or anything about you. At the heart of it all, I believe that your emotional pain – whatever it may be – can be a great teacher. You only need to listen to its inherent lessons. I believe it’s your imagination that can provide the answers you need, and help you see your challenges in a new way. I’m here to help you uncover, face and then cope with your pain (which can be expressed physically or psychologically). Trusting in yourself and your inner wisdom is possible and you can learn to be your own best friend. Imagine finding solutions that are heart felt, loving and supportive to your own system and body.
