Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What is Timeline Therapy?

Timeline Therapy is a therapeutic process designed to help individuals clear negative emotions and limiting beliefs that stem from past experiences. This method involves exploring and understanding significant emotional events in one’s life timeline, identifying how these events have shaped current behaviors and thought patterns, and then reworking these memories to reduce their negative impact. By revisiting and reframing these past events, individuals can release pent-up emotions, gain new insights, and create a more positive outlook on life.

This therapy is particularly effective for those who have experienced trauma and grief, as it provides a structured way to process and heal from past wounds, enabling them to move forward and build healthier relationships.

What is Holistic Counseling?

Holistic Counseling is an integrative approach to therapy that considers the whole person—mind, body, and spirit. Unlike traditional counseling methods that may focus primarily on mental health, holistic counseling recognizes the interconnectedness of emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being. This approach involves using a variety of therapeutic techniques, such as talk therapy, mindfulness practices, meditation, and sometimes even physical activities or nutritional guidance, to address the root causes of emotional distress.

Holistic counseling aims to help individuals achieve balance and harmony in all aspects of their lives, promoting overall wellness. It’s particularly beneficial for individuals dealing with trauma and grief, as it provides a comprehensive framework for healing that nurtures every part of the person, encouraging growth and transformation from within.

What is Relationship Coaching?

Relationship Coaching focuses on helping individuals and couples improve their interpersonal relationships. It involves identifying patterns and behaviors that may be hindering relationship satisfaction, developing effective communication skills, and setting goals for personal and relational growth.

Relationship coaching can address a wide range of issues, including communication breakdowns, conflict resolution, intimacy concerns, and rebuilding trust. By providing tools and strategies tailored to each client’s unique situation, relationship coaching fosters healthier, more fulfilling relationships.

What is Trauma & Grief Coaching & Counselloring?

Trauma & Grief Coaching & Counselling is a specialized form of support designed to help individuals navigate the complex emotions and challenges that arise from experiencing trauma and loss. This approach combines elements of both coaching and counseling to provide comprehensive care that addresses immediate emotional needs while also fostering long-term healing and personal growth.

What can I expect in a counseling session with you?

As a Registered Nurse, Relationship Coach, and Meditation Teacher, I integrate my diverse expertise to support your healing journey comprehensively. Together, we will explore your past experiences, identify current challenges, and develop strategies to help you heal, grow, and build healthier relationships.

How do I know if I need therapy or coaching?

Deciding whether you need therapy or coaching depends on your current situation and goals. Therapy is typically beneficial if you are dealing with significant emotional distress, mental health issues, or past trauma that requires healing and processing. It provides a space to explore and understand deep-seated issues and develop coping mechanisms. Coaching, on the other hand, is more future-focused and goal-oriented. It is ideal if you are looking to improve specific areas of your life, such as relationships, personal growth, or career development, and need guidance and strategies to achieve your goals. In some cases, a combination of both therapy and coaching may be the most effective approach.

How long does therapy or coaching take?

The duration of therapy or coaching varies depending on individual needs and goals. Some clients may find significant improvement in a few sessions, while others may benefit from longer-term support. During our initial consultation, we will discuss your specific situation and develop a plan that outlines the expected timeline and frequency of sessions. The goal is to provide you with the tools and support you need to achieve lasting positive change at a pace that is comfortable and effective for you.

How can Meditation help with Stress?

Meditation is a powerful tool for self-regulation. Regular meditation practice can help calm the mind, reduce stress, and increase emotional resilience. Techniques such as mindfulness meditation encourage individuals to observe their thoughts and feelings without judgment, fostering a sense of acceptance and inner peace. Guided meditations can also be specifically tailored to assist in focusing and productivity throughout your day, helping you process difficult emotions and memories in a safe and supportive environment. Over time, meditation can aid in developing a more grounded and centered approach to life’s challenges, promoting long-term emotional healing and optimal health and well-being.

What is hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a therapeutic technique that involves guiding an individual into a state of deep relaxation and focused attention, often referred to as a trance state. In this state, the mind becomes more open to suggestions and positive changes, making it easier to address various psychological and emotional issues. Hypnosis is used for a range of purposes, including reducing stress, managing pain, overcoming fears and phobias, improving sleep, and changing unhealthy habits.

What is healing hands therapy?

Healing Hands Therapy, often referred to as energy healing or hands-on healing, is a holistic practice that involves using the hands to assist an individual to balance their physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being. This form of therapy is based on the belief that the body can heal itself.

Developed by nurses, this method involves the practitioner moving their hands near the patient’s body to detect and correct imbalances in the energy field. It aims to promote relaxation, reduce pain, and accelerate healing.

Benefits of Healing Hands Therapy may include:

  • Stress Reduction and Relaxation: Promotes deep relaxation, which can alleviate stress and anxiety.
  • Pain Management: Helps to reduce pain and discomfort from various conditions.
  • Emotional Healing: Assists in releasing emotional blockages and promoting mental clarity and emotional stability.
  • Enhanced Well-being: Improves overall sense of well-being and balance, contributing to better health and vitality.
