About

I support my clients holistically to restore and strengthen creativity, resourcefulness and wellbeing. This includes strengthening resources to navigate stressful life situations, transitions and anxiety; and accessing pathways to heal from trauma-related symptoms and experiences including attachment and developmental trauma, domestic and sexual violence, and systemic trauma relating to race, gender and organisations. With over 20 years of organisational and leadership experience, I have a deep understanding of the challenges of organisational life and of what it takes to strengthen authentic, healthy, effective functioning.
I specialise in expressive arts, somatic and systemic approaches. Wisdom stories, imagery, role-play, creative imagination, family constellations - these are some of the techniques we might work with in therapy. We invite all your parts and possibilities, and the systems you are connected with, into the process of your strengthening.
A restorative, sometimes challenging, always safe space in which to explore emotional healing, self-discovery, possibilities and more. I equip my clients with knowledge and tools to access innate healing capacities that strengthen self-awareness, integrate traumatic experiences and restore wellbeing and generativity.

Vasintha Pather's Groups

ReStorying Wholeness

Wisdom stories are powerful maps that guide us, connect us with others, and shape meaning in our lives. Restorying Wholeness© is a group process through which we access the medicine of myth, fairytales and creative expression to deepen meaning and resourcefulness. Rooted in restoring our connection with Self, we draw on our innate wisdom, strengthen our relationship with Life's wisdom, and come into our own belonging and creativity. In addition to story, we might engage with art, embodiment, psychodrama and other expressive arts forms.
