Realign Counselling is a powerful, challenging and yet empowering counselling approach which has brought about positive and lasting change for many adults and adolescents helping to shift relationships, family dynamics and lifestyles.
What is Realign Counselling?
Realign Counselling is my own unique holistic approach based on years of research and experience of working with people from birth to old age. Unlike standard counselling, It combines counselling with energy healing, and life coaching, where I teach you various techniques and simple steps to follow that enable you to navigate your way through life with confidence, calm and certainty. You get a counsellor, healer and life coach all wrapped up in one!
The fundamental theory of Realign Counselling is that we all have a core self or 'true self'. This true self is at the heart of our being and where we are connected to something 'bigger', it's the home of our gut feelings and instincts and it's this that guides us in making choices and decisions.
Our sense of self - who we describe ourselves to be in the world or what some may call their 'ego' or as I like to call it our 'outer self', is impacted, influenced and programmed by our experiences in childhood, our parents, education and school life, relationships, society, the media and circumstances, traumas and loss in our lives. This can cause us to become disjointed and misaligned from our true self. As a result we can sometimes feel lost, stuck, confused and unfulfilled. The further away we are from our true self the more anxious, hopeless and depressed we feel. However we never become detached from our true self, we are part of it, we simply need to refocus and realign ourselves, as a result we feel happier, more in control and more resilient to life's challenges.

What can I expect?
Realign Counselling provides a warm, safe and supportive space for people to talk about issues that concern them or limit them in some way. Having someone who doesn't know you, really listen and help you understand, process and make peace with your past is very powerful and healing. I listen and intuitively read what you bring to the session and ask specific questions that help clarify my understanding and help realign you with your true self. Realign Counselling is also a forward thinking, motivational coaching style where I teach you various techniques and simple steps to help you stay aligned, present, and certain about your feelings and decisions to be made, as well as how to move forward and make changes in your life.
Sessions last one hour, are generally weekly and on average last for around 8-12 sessions but some people need less and some people need more. Everyone is different, our work together is a journey and will unfold in its own way. You can choose to have weekly, fortnightly or monthly sessions if you prefer, however I would recommend weekly at first. Most people have between 8-12 sessions weekly and then move to every two weeks, then monthly and then have boosters every now and then. Over a series of sessions, you will feel more confident, empowered, have clarity and understanding and generally feel much happier. See some testimonials from previous clients here
