I work with the LGBTQ + community, creatives, and deep thinkers + feelers.
Hey, I'm stoked you've stopped by! I'm Ess, an introverted, dance obsessed, spiritual being who will drop an F-bomb in solidarity or celebration. I'm genuinely interested in learning about you and hearing your story. I'm excited for you, to be more YOU! Whether that's supporting you to: express yourself more fully, learn tools to practice self-acceptance, work through past experiences so you can embrace you now, unlearn and relearn behaviours so you can thrive... While I have approx 10 years experience working in trauma/mental health, I'm currently focusing on working with folks curious about deeper self exploration + growth.

Hi! I’m Lou. I’m a consent, respectful relationships and sexuality educator empowering young people and their carers to make informed choices about their bodies and personal relationships. One of my greatest passions is facilitating those lightbulb moments for young people when they realise “Oh, I can say ‘no’, and I don’t have to feel guilty about it!”

I am an integrative therapist who loves working with people who are willing to be curious about themselves and others. I specialise in a process of somatic integration called Focusing, in which attention is placed not only on thoughts, emotions, and behaviours, but also on the body’s immediate, moment-to-moment reactions and processing. This allows clients to be warmly and safely ‘in company’ with themselves, especially those parts that are difficult to access or listen to. By acknowledging, allowing, listening, and responding to oneself from a place of genuine interest, the opportunities for expansion, ease, and joy are endless.

Counsellor, ACA-L2

We often reach a point in life where it’s important to move on from the old and embrace the new. This may feel challenging and overwhelming in the short term, but it can also be an incredibly fulfilling and enriching experience in the long term. As a counsellor, my priority is to create a safe and therapeutic space where you can be heard without judgement and met with respect and empathy. To me, understanding trauma and resilience is highly important: what trauma means and how it can affect us is an important step to self-discovery. And what makes up your resilience? Learning again, but this time with more meaning and motivation.

Anxiety, stress, persistent negative thoughts and feelings of not being enough, depression, wanting to enter into a relationship, wanting to change direction in your career, can all be areas we work through together. Through the therapeutic relationship, we work to understand and experience the blocks that prevent you from achieving goals. We also work together to recognize your unique qualities and gifts. Counselling and body psychotherapy compliment the overall experience of connecting mind and body. By becoming,"embodied ", life can be experienced more fully. All feelings can be tolerated and integrated in a grounded way
