Hi, I'm Mel!

Are you seeking a counsellor who will always see you as well and whole
no matter your current struggles?
If you feel a connection to the info throughout this site, I would be honoured to walk the next few steps with you. 

As your counsellor and coach, I offer you...
Holistic Life Coaching- You are a beautifully complex being. You are body, mind, and spirit. For this reason, I work with all aspects of your being. I know that suffering comes from being out of alignment with your True Self and this alignment is something we move in and out of on regular basis; we are human. I bring my training as a Registered Clinical Counsellor, a Somatic Practioner, a coach, a Yoga teacher, a Gateless Writing Coach, and a spiritual human being to help you remember the sweet spot of alignment and how to find it again and again.
Somatic Experiencing- a highly effective body-oriented approach to counselling. SE will assist you in releasing trauma from the body, symptoms of PTSD, as well as stress and anxiety. This gentle approach to trauma healing will help you come into a healthy loving relationship with your body, your life, your history, and your future.

Somatic Touch Work- with over 20 years of training and expertise in the human body, injury management, and energy work, the touch work I offer is a powerful way to move stuck energy through the body. Somatic Touch helps to release tension patterns throughout the body that can be frozen in place during a traumatic event or chronic stress. Trauma and the bodily responses to it are an event, not a life sentence. By releasing the trauma responses you gain access to new depths of health, creativity, and a sense of self.
Here are a few of the specific human experiences I can help with:
•Life Transitions and Shifts  •Coaching for Writers  •Befriending the Inner Critic  •Movement Through Beliefs that Limit Personal and Professional Life  •Spiritual Exploration  •Mindfulness & Meditation 
I offer my coaching services for adults (18 plus):

• online through Skype, Phone and FaceTime.
