Linda believes in our inner power to heal and that transformation occurs when we feel safe and seen. Linda works in a gentle, honest, intuitive way drawing from 25 plus years that are tailored to your individual needs and goals. By applying Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Mindfulness practices can create a space where our minds are no longer our worst enemy and that we will find ways to find inner knowingness, compassion and self-acceptance. There is also an intrinsic connection between body and mind thus, using somatic based practices to release stored trauma and build on awareness of how the nervous system is being activated in the present.

Couples Counselling

My process involves supporting each person working on themselves and the relationship 100% in order to resolve past hurts, creating new communication and reconnecting with loving each other. Couples can resolve the past in order to not recreate it in relationships going further. In our work, the couple becomes aware of how they may be replaying their family dynamics, growing compassion and understanding of their own and their partner’s triggers in order to shift their behaviour fundamentally forever.

Relationship Work

My process begins with developing a relationship with self, body, mind, heart and spirit and loving oneself and then how to love another. We begin to understand that the healthier we are the healthier our relationship with another will be. Love is only felt when we love ourselves is more than a saying, and happens.
