Services

Counselling

Are you feeling the need for some support to navigate your life currently? Perhaps you've been walking a long and rough road, and are living with the impact of traumatic events? Maybe a loved one has encouraged you to seek counselling, and you're not sure where to start? People decide to seek counselling for many reasons, including:

  • depression

  • anxiety

  • a history of sexual assault

  • domestic and family violence

  • sleep troubles and/or recurring nightmares

  • childhood abuse, neglect or abandonment

  • autism or other neurodiverse-related challenges 

  • other trauma-related impact

  • parenting support 

 

The modalities below are my areas of focus, however we will work together to discover what works best for you, based on your needs. Working with a somatic/body-based, trauma-informed lens, and a highly trained background allows me to support your need for safety as the priority, and to tailor the approach to meet you where you are. 

Natural Dreamwork

Rodger Kamenetz, poet, teacher and author of many books including The History of Last Night's Dream is the founder of Natural Dreamwork. Deeply experiential in practice, Natural Dreamwork steps away from interpretation, instead together we seek to bring your dreams to life.  Explore the deep transformation possible from attending to the part of our lives that is all too often undervalued. 

Kimberlee has been a lifelong dreamer herself, is a Natural Dreamwork practitioner-in-training and has completed training with other Dreamworkers such as Toko-pa Turner and Christopher Sowton.

"A dream ignored is like a letter unopened" ~ Middle Eastern proverb

Sensorimotor Art Therapy

Experience the power of using this creative approach to enhance your connection with your Self and your body; to support meaning-making out of your life-experiences. The practices of Guided Drawing and other sensorimotor art therapy exercises developed by Cornelia Elbrecht and others are very effective ways of working with the impacts of trauma,  or where other challenging and intense experiences have left their imprint. 

Kimberlee holds a Certificate in Initiatic Art Therapy from the Institute of Sensorimotor Art Therapy (ISAT) founded by Cornelia Elbrecht and a Certificate in Art Therapy from the College for Educational and Clinical Art Therapy (CECAT). She's also completed a Certificate in Somatic Strategies with Linda Thai. 

"The spontaneous movement in all of us is toward connection, health, and aliveness. No matter how withdrawn and isolated we have become or how serious the trauma we have experienced, on the deepest level, just as a plant spontaneously moves towards sunlight, there is in each of us and impulse moving toward connection and healing." ~Aline LaPierre & Lawrence Heller

Parenting Support
_____

Support your child's ability to successfully manage their emotions. Learn to honour your child's inborn wisdom; behaviours you may struggle with are your child's way of attempting to ensure a secure connection with you. Understand how you were parented affects what you are already doing, and not yet doing, for your child. Explore how art and play can support your child's development and your relationship with them. 

Kimberlee is a Circle of Security Parent Facilitator, and a trained Theraplay practitioner. 

"When we see a behaviour that is problematic or confusing, the first question we should ask isn't "how do we get rid of it?" but rather "what is this telling us about the child?"

~Mona Delahooke
