Registered Therapeutic Counsellor and Play Therapist
I am a Registered Therapeutic Counsellor and Play Therapist.
My therapeutic approach includes Relational Somatic Therapy and Synergetic Play Therapy™. These modalities are on the leading edge of what neuroscience research and trauma-informed practice tell us: "Traumatic symptoms are not caused by the event that occurred. They stem from the frozen residue of energy that has not been resolved or discharged. This residue remains trapped in the nervous system where is creates problems for our bodies and spirits." Peter Levine.
Within a safe therapeutic container, both Relational Somatic Therapy and Synergetic Play Therapy work to unwind old challenge from the body, and build resiliency in the system for meeting the new challenges we face everyday.

The Journey Oracle
An Oracle translates a problem or question into a language of image and symbol like that of dreams. It changes how you experience a situation by revealing the inner forces that are shaping it. Your anxieties, fears and desires emerge to be recognized and resolved, and hidden transformative energies are released.
The Journey Oracle has 47 double-sided cards and a book of Oracle pronouncements and teaching stories. These enable you to conduct the unique Dream Journey reading based on the dream analysis of C.G. Jung and a shamanic journey to the spirit world. www.journeyoracle.com
