Holistic Couples Therapy
Time to reconnect
Whatever has caused your relationship to feel stuck, conflict fuelled or conflict avoidant, distant, disconnected, lacking intimacy or vitality, meaningful reconnection is possible.
In holistic couples counselling, Sharlene facilitates deep 'self' and 'other' awareness, fosters compassionate understanding and personal responsibility for both partners.
Through compassion for self and other, you develop your capacity to regulate difficult emotions during times of stress and conflict; communicate your needs, wants and desires calmly and clearly; transform negative patterns of relating; and reclaim a fulfilling and nourishing relationship.
As a somatic, holistic practitioner, Sharlene works from a foundation of self (who am I), body (how do you experience, store and manage your emotions) & other (who your partner is as a separate person to you) to foster mind body awareness and healthy interdependence.
Sharlene has a soulful and collaborative way of working and she looks forward to welcoming you both into her relaxed and soothing therapy space.
We felt completely relaxed in Sharlene's presence. She is warm and welcoming. We both felt very supported, equally heard and understood without judgement. We had developed unhealthy habits and were stuck. We now have a healthy framework to talk about difficult things. These sessions have been so impactful to our relationship. We understand each other's wounds and have healthier coping mechanisms. Sharlene has made a huge difference for us, in a relatively short time.
