Hi! I’m Jennifer. I’m the founder of Psychotherapy Central and co-founder of The Golden Woman Centre, and am currently the President of the International Energetic Healing Association. I am a mum to two beautiful children, wife, daughter, sister and friend. I have a Masters degree in Counselling and Applied Psychotherapy. I am a licensed counsellor and energetic healer, but you can think of me as a huge self-love advocate, a listening ear, and a holder of space for transformation and healing.
I support people who feel overwhelmed by self-criticism, stress, sadness, anxiety, doubt and fear to become more accepting of who they are and break through their own inner glass ceiling by calling on a unique combination of psychotherapy and energetic healing.
I help people who want to:
Work on family or relationship challenges
Recover from depression
Learn techniques to deal with anxiety
Improve their self-esteem
Connect more with their inner power
Get more focused on their career
Build inner happiness and a positive outlook
Create meaningful and fulfilling relationships
Better manage everyday stress and anxiety
My role is one of collaborator and guide, not expert, as I work from the knowing that everything my client needs is already within them.
I work with clients to assist them to access their own inner wisdom as they navigate life’s ups and downs, grow in self-compassion, have a better relationship with themselves and others, and to change patterns that are no longer helpful, in order to find more joy in life, be more authentically in the present and fulfilled, whatever may be going on.
I know from years of supporting people experiencing struggle and from my own experiences as a client, that even when life feels hopeless and overwhelming, we all have the capacity to grow into more wholeness and strength, and we are all deserving of feeling more hopeful and joyous about ourselves and our life.
One of the most healing experiences we can have is to be deeply seen, heard, witnessed and acknowledged in a non-judgemental way by another person. I am so grateful to serve others as this loving witness and I am inspired by the resilience and strength I see in my clients every day.
I really look forward to supporting you in your own, unique journey of healing. After all…You are the Art.
“When you go out into the woods, and you look at trees, you see all these different trees. And some of them are bent, and some of them are straight, and some of them are evergreens, and some of them are whatever. And you look at the tree and you allow it. You see why it is the way it is. You sort of understand that it didn’t get enough light, and so it turned that way. And you don’t get all emotional about it. You just allow it. You appreciate the tree.
The minute you get near humans, you lose all that. And you are constantly saying ‘You are too this, or I’m too this.’ That judgment mind comes in. And so I practice turning people into trees. Which means appreciating them just the way they are.” – Ram Das
