About

We cannot change the events or situations of our past, but we can absolutely be free from being chronically impacted, and compacted by our history. You are entitled to all of your feelings and they are an integral part of healing and living a healthy life. If you are ready to move what you are holding to a new place, I am here to support that process. You can find your voice, unpack your story, be seen and heard, I bring tools and support to make the changes you would like to make, so that you can embrace your life with love and enthusiasm. In my mind, everyone who survived their story and makes it to counselling is a superhero.
I bring an array of modalities to augment talk therapy including movement, mindfulness and the natural world. My life has exposed me to the very best and worst of human potential., There is nothing that would shock me beyond what I am ready to be present for. and meet with infallible faith in the transformative capacity of connection, compassion and love.
l hold a large space to explore and express in new ways; thoughts, personas, emotions and movements l offer insight, reflection and an opportunity to forge a new template of connectedness and fresh pathways. I will nourish your ability to appreciate yourself and move forward in cultivating the life you would like to have, with you as your own best ally.

Diane Brussell's Groups

Transformational Musical Theatre

This group provides an opportunity for embodied enthusiasm and vocalized positivity. Participants are able to get in sync with others, join humanity, connect and celebrate the experience and power of joining forces in a joyful way. We will be singing musical theatre songs that deliver messages of hope, strength, encouragement, empathy and fun. There will be optional choreography for those who feel inclined to learn dances. There will also be encouragement for alternate movement of any kind. The atmosphere is inclusive, permissive with the sole purpose of connecting with our selves and others in a playful, joyous way.
