Heart centered counselling for those committed to growth with Faye Shedletzky.
As humans, we thrive in connection. Having followed a path of self-discovery through Gestalt, Internal Family Systems, Somatic and Embodied practices, I want to share the healing modalities that have brought me clarity, freedom and joy.
I offer one-on-one counselling online anywhere in B.C. and in-person from my Nanaimo clinic.
This is brave work. In counselling, you and I co-create a space where you can listen to and understand your full self. When the parts of you that have suffered are heard and loved, they will transform.
I look forward to walking with you on your journey home.
It's easy to be disconnected and discouraged in a world that encourages conformity, comparison with others, and prioritizes our heads over our hearts. We are socialized to give away our power to external authorities, with daily messages telling us who and how we should be. It seems normal these days to be anxious and overwhelmed; to be judgemental and critical of yourself and others.
You are not broken, you have just lost connection with who you are.
What if all parts of you made sense? What if your emotions are sending important messages to you? What if you could tell the truth of your desires to yourself? What if you could regularly shift from states of internal storms to calm and balance?
We all have different parts of ourselves, and though they may feel conflicting, they all have something to teach us. I encourage people to turn towards those parts and find connection with your true Self. When you cultivate curiosity and compassion towards yourself, you will be surprised at the answers you find. And when you feel aligned within yourself, you will feel more capable, harmonious and at ease.
I help you to re-write the story that you tell about yourself: to you and to others.
I believe you are already perfect, beautiful and whole. And that peace and happiness are accessible to each of us.
My life’s work has been about finding my own voice. Having followed a path of self-discovery through Gestalt, Internal Family Systems, Somatic and Embodied practices. Now, I want to share with others the healing modalities that have brought me clarity, freedom and joy.
What My Peers Say...
Change begins with awareness. And curiosity. When you have curiosity you can know yourself. This is where your healing begins.
We each have the capacity to tune into our wisdom and know what is best for us. You have a core essence – we all do. You might call it your higher Self, your wiser Self or just “You”. The “You” that knows when something you hear is true. When you tap into this inner resource you have a super-highway to an endless source of support. You can offer yourself the secure attachment you have been searching for. You can find your way back to a life of connection, beauty, meaning and purpose.
Courage is essential, too. When you lean into discomfort instead of pushing it away, you will grow. When you can be with all your emotions — the scared and angry parts, and the parts that have suffered — joy, gratitude, appreciation, awe, love and possibility will be there for you in equal measure.
This is brave work. As humans, we thrive in connection. In counselling, you and I co-create a space where you can listen to and understand ALL of “you”. When the parts of you that have suffered are heard and loved, they will transform.
I look forward to walking with you on your journey home to your Self.
