I have a diploma in Transpersonal Counselling Psychology. Transpersonal means more than our personal lives, our personal story, transpersonal means looking at the bigger picture.
For myself as a survivor of sexual trauma, it has been imperative that I find a way to make sense of injustice. In my healing I have found many strengths and gifts that I woud not otherwise have-in other words gifts in my trauma. This does not mean that violence is ok, what this means is that we can develop an ability to truly live instead of simply survive- to find self worth, self love, our voice, and healthy boundaries.
Trauma encompasses far more than the typical events we think of. Any crisis that happens in our childhood can traumatise us: death or serious illness of a care giver or loved family member (grandparent for example), ourself having a serious illness or accident/hospitalisation, separation, parents' divorcing, job loss and so on, anything that makes us feel unsafe for a period of time.
As a counsellor I am passionate about supporting my clients in finding their own magnificence in the midst of the trials of life, by shining light on adversity.
Adversities are windows to discovering who we truly are!
