A Life of Wonder
HSPs and Empaths are keenly tuned to the needs of other people; to different smells, sounds, tastes, feelings and environments. This allows us to see and experience life in a magical way, different to how others experience it.
We are often seen as too emotional or too sensitive. Our culture is constantly telling us who we should be, what we should feel, how we should look, and how to make decisions. These messages are overwhelming and exhausting and often lead us into anxiety, depression, body dysmorphia and difficult relationships.
My integrative approach helps you to filter through the endless information, advice, and pressures surrounding you. I support you to reconnect with your body, your intuition and the strengths inherent in your sensitive nature. We will work together to create specific and attainable goals so you can experience resilience, confidence, hope and joy.
Boundaries are Love
As a Sensitive and Empath, I used to think my feelings were too much. In my personal and professional experience I have begun to see my emotions as clues to what's happening around me. I have learned - through practice - to put loving boundaries in place to support myself.
Boundaries are often viewed as an iron door, like "you f***ed up". It's our defense mechanism to keep others out and keep us safe. As a Sensitive and Empath, boundaries are imperative in order to support ourselves in this very busy world. Boundaries are actually an opportunity to teach people how to love you.
For boundaries to be effective, we must first cultivate awareness about ourselves and our needs. Our stories and reactions to others are breadcrumbs showing us where we have not put boundaries in place. This causes us to become people pleasers.
Our empathic ability allows us to form healthy boundaries from a place of love. By reframing our beliefs, perspectives and reactions to the world, boundaries become a way that allow the right people in, and keep the wrong people out. This is what counselling is all about. This is what we do.
