OUR SERVICE OFFERS

Holistic Counselling + Life Coaching 1:1

 

Holistic coaching + counselling is based in Humanistic Psychology and the Holistic Counsellor forms a supportive partnership with the client to guide and encourage you (the client) in developing the skills they require to manage their lives in ways that are more fulfilling to you. The Holistic Counsellor does not analyze or make any judgments about the client. Nor do they give advice. They support you to find your own answers.

HC considers the whole person; mind, body and spirit (or soul). It helps you to bring balance into your whole life and allows you to get in touch with your personal needs on a holistic level. It is based on one element of a person cannot be healthy without all the other aspects of the person being in balance and harmony. The mind will not be well if the body is not well. The body will not be well if the spirit is not well.  As a Holistic Counsellor, my job is to guide you toward your own ultimate goals and balance in your life. We will also explore emotions and how this interacts with our Mindy, Body and Spirit.

In many ways, the problem you are experiencing is not the problem. We will explore ways you can 'find yourself again' and get in touch with our self-love + compassion with the tools I provide that reduce stress and empower you to make choices that suit your life.

Holistic Business Coaching - for Women Entrepreneurs
(or want to start their own business but don't know where to start!)

Small business owners are a rare breed.
Many people who work 'traditional' jobs under a team or management structure don't realize the amount of work and sacrifices it takes to run a small business, whether you are a sole trader or a CEO of a small team, you understand the risks involved, the failures, the late nights, discipline, juggling family life to chase your dream, the courage, hard work and dedication. The disappointments and courage to keep going. The good habits you must form to keep it all together.

 

These are all skills we have learned out of necessity.

 

But what we don't have is a sounding board - especially if you are a Sole Trader. 

Holistic Business Coaching is for those who are small business owners or Sole Trader's. You may already have a successful business, but you are going through some personal struggles, or had a situation arise in your work that made you question your self-worth, confidence or motivation.

Holistic Business Coaching realigns your purpose, it focuses on your strength's and supports you with a sounding board, someone who can help set up logistics and systems, to brainstorm with, to build you a beautiful website, social pages and even provide marketing tools and tips!

If you are feeling disconnected, a little lost, or intimated by a pivot you know you need to make -

hiring a Holistic Business Coach will be a GAME CHANGER.

Frequently Asked Questions

My Child has additional needs (ASD / ADHD / ADD ) will your sessions suit them?

The incredible thing with visual + expressive art is there is no wrong answer. It is child-led or individual-led. We offer guidelines, techniques and strategies to try, but the rest is up to the individual with many opportunities to try different mediums. We can have as much or as little direction as needed.

We can also work closely with your child and their carer (if they have one attending the session) at their first session to work out what feels right for them. We ask that you communicate any strategies or additional notes in an email or upon booking so we can keep on file. We also recommend arriving early or arranging a time prior to the first session to discuss these strategies or concerns.
