Holistic Integrated Counseling

Our approach at Phoenix, is that there are always going to be highs and lows, that’s life. It’s how we deal with them that’s important. Our aim is to go with you on a journey of self-exploration, to empower you to be the master of your own life using your own skills, intuition, and discernment to guide you.

Everyone is different, we all have different needs, challenges, and experiences. Our role is not to heal you or solve your problems but to empower you, support you and to give you the lifelong skills necessary so that you can heal and solve your problems yourself. To move through life from a place of empowerment and belief.

After our sessions there will be small amounts of homework to practice.

I also recommend some reading material, breath-work & other practices, these are optional and dependent on the individual.

My one-on-one counseling sessions are based on how to harness the power of the mind.

Cognitive Behavior therapyCBT – This is the traditional therapy I work with.

This focusses on challenging and changing thoughts, beliefs and attitudes that have become distorted and the behavioral issues that may arise from them. These distorted thoughts usually come from negative programming or conditioning over time.

By challenging and changing these negative old programs, we can begin to realise our true potential and self-worth.

Solution Focused Therapy – This is another style I really love working with.

This is a more short-term goal focussed therapeutic approach which incorporates positive psychological principles and practices. Rather than focussing on problems, we explore these together, constructing solutions to them.

Metaphysical Coaching – is a holistic approach that to me is vital in creating the life we want.

This approach is one of raising our consciousness to create our own reality.

I like to think of it as the magical mind, where there are no limits or boundaries to who we are.

It focusses on how the relationship between mind and matter is linked through life flow energy.

If you are interested in finding out more about metaphysics, I cover it in more depth in the spiritual link.

If you would like to arrange some counseling one-on-one, my session’s will be done via skype, zoom or in person if in my local area. In our first session, I will chat with you about what to expect, the type of practice you resonate with and any information you will need, making sure you are comfortable with everything.


The Power of the Mind

When we realise how powerful our thoughts are, we will never have a negative thought again”

Our mind is a massive control panel for our lives, and our thoughts are the instructions coming from it.

Our thoughts affect everything, from our health, relationships, environment, happiness, consciousness to our connection to Source. It is such an important and vital part of us all. 

First, we need to understand that our thoughts are not internal to us. They are external! Once we realise this, we become more aware of the power held within them, and we are careful with how we think.

Thoughts are energy, they resonate at a certain frequency. Lower frequency are negative contracted thoughts that don’t allow us to expand our thinking. Higher frequency thoughts are positive and expansive, allowing us limitless power into the universal mind. We are co-creators within our own lives. 

Thoughts create our emotions, feelings, and beliefs, which all have a frequency. These in turn create our behaviours (action). Our beliefs and our actions are how we then create our reality. 

If we want a better life, change the way we think!

The Power of the mind and its effect on our health

The power of our mind over our bodies has been demonstrated time and again with the Placebo effect. When people believe they are taking a medicine with healing properties, healing is more likely to occur. Even if they are only ingesting a sugar pill. This is due to the power of the mind. The placebo effect is a positive effect on a person’s health triggered by the persons belief that they will feel better, so they are more likely to. The belief in the healing effect of a substance, has the ability to produce significant healing in up to 30% of the population. Because of the powerful mind/body connection we are able to bring about healing in our physical body.

Many people struggle with this concept as our subconscious mind (conditioning, beliefs, values) will sabotage our conscious mind (rational thought in the moment) with limitations on what we have been conditioned to believe is possible.

When we believe we are sick, then that’s what we will be. When we have total belief, without any doubt that we are in perfect health, then our bodies can be whole complete and healthy.

My passion for metaphysical healing(mph) has been driven by my own experience in using mph to heal myself from chronic neck issues, including rheumatoid arthritis and severe debilitating nerve pain. After spending years and large amounts of money on Drs, specialists, consultants, and medication, being told I would have to manage this chronic condition for the rest of my life, was when I let go totally of the old program of doubt in being able to heal (constant severe pain creates so much doubt) and chose total belief in my own power to heal myself. That light bulb moment gave me back my health.

There is a lot more to this which I cover in metaphysical healing.


 Triggers are subconscious emotions that we bring up over and over into current situations. They come from old traumas, pain, hurt, grief, loss, fears and are fuelled by some negative beliefs. Triggers are not about what is going on right now, even if it feels like it. 

 The best way I can describe triggers is the Universe persisting to show you a lesson (hurt, trauma, belief) that needs to be healed. It will come up as a trigger over and over until you address it and heal it. 

Identifying a trigger and where it comes from

  1. Once aware we are being triggered. Find a quiet place, to sit alone. Go within and try to identify where the trigger comes from. In time it usually comes to us. 
  2. Once we are aware of where it comes from. We can challenge it by bringing it into the present as we do not live in the past. Is it relevant today in our conscious mind? Does it serve us today or hold us back?
  3. Depending on where the trigger comes from, chose the best way you will need to heal it. If we are able, give it love and thank it for being there, then let it go with unconditional love. 
  4. This is a starting place that allows us to let go of karma and heal so that we can move into a higher consciousness and awareness?  

Reality and Overthinking

When we are not present in this moment, we cannot enjoy how good that moment is OR deal with issues that are not going away. We spend hours thinking of what might happen and usually it never does, so our minds are worrying for nothing!

Try this technique when having a conversation, it works really well; focus on listening and engaging rather than thinking of what you’re going to say next. Be in the moment, it’s amazing how much better the communication will be.

Please visit our mindfulness section with some great tips for enjoying the moment and dealing with issues as they arise.

Challenging Old Perceptions

As adults we need to revisit and challenge old perceptions, programming, conditioning, beliefs, and values if they have been holding us back. The world is changing, and humanity is evolving. To move through into higher states of consciousness, use discernment to process and understand things from a place of non-judgement, and to trust our intuition and ourselves to know what the right thing for us is. Letting go of the old and embracing our authentic self is not just liberating and freeing it is who we are supposed to be!


This is why our practices are offered on a value for value model.

Which means you pay what the treatment is worth to you and what you can afford, as we want everyone to benefit from these practices designed for health & wellbeing but made with unconditional LOVE!
