Workshops & Training




Counselling is a collaborative process between a practitioner and client that aims to explore, heal and create more positive circumstances and experiences for the client. Listening, observing and identifying negative patterns, emotions and behaviours, and exploring options or solutions that are manageable, sustainable and work well for the client are key. 

Dharma Healing and Mindfulness Counselling:

Buddha Dharma and Mindfulness Counselling is not so much a model that one can just apply, but more of an attitude and approach that one can embody for self-study, and to assist those on a path of physical, emotional & spiritual development. The Buddha Dharma emphasizes the understanding of yourself - know yourself - thus the Buddha Dharma education is a practice of self-inquiry that leads you on a journey toward self-realization.

Dharma is a complex idea as it is the essence of existence and universal or ‘natural law’. It is the law of everything that exists. It is ‘Logos’, or divine truth. Buddha Dharma is Buddha’s interpretation of Dharma. 

The Four Noble Truths are a principle foundation of Buddha Dharma philosophy. This teaching is the understanding of suffering (illness – physical or mental), and the path out of suffering and toward freedom and balance. The simple act of self-observation and adopting a ‘noble way of being’ (to live in an integrous way that honours the individual and those around them) is a highly effective tool that creates long-term positive outcomes.

The Richards Trauma Process or TRTP™:

TRTP™ is an elegantly simple, yet comprehensive, step-by-step process which resolves extreme trauma and trauma-related issues – anxiety, depression, fears and phobias. It achieves results quickly, effectively and safely.

It is a truly eclectic therapy. It is a very structured, yet dynamic process. It includes components of Gestalt, Mindfulness, Ego-state Therapy, Choice Therapy, Cognitive Therapy, Parts Therapy, Emotion-focused Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Dream Rehearsal Therapy and others.

Shadow Psychology and Inner Child Integration:

The study of the unconscious/subconscious mind. (Think Jung). The aim is to reveal the blocks, beliefs and unhealed wounds that an individual holds in the unconscious mind. The idea is once revealed it can be explored and treated using appropriate healing techniques. Psychoanalysis is rooted deeply in both the Buddha Dharma philosophy and Holistic Counselling model. There are numerous therapies and treatments available that provide a framework for exploring the unconscious, subconscious realm (including TRTP - see above), and it is very effective when used in conjunction with a body-based technique such as Kinesiology. 

Core to healing and growth is this shadow work and integrating the inner child. It is possibly the most profound process an individual can do. It will literally unlock every negative aspect, and offers deep healing and integration, resulting in a balanced sense of self, deeper understanding of who you are, and is key to an expanded, rich and wholesome life.


If who you are, and who you thought you’d be feels miles apart, then shadow work may be for you.
