Kinesiology Counselling – Samantha Bladon
There is an initial counselling phase where the client identifies what they know about the issues or goal of concern. Kinesiology may consolidate or identify emotions hidden from the clients conscious awareness. These patterns may have originated early in our lives as a survival response. De-stressing the system at this primitive survival level (the amygdala); frees one up to react differently and make new choices. Sam is a trained counsellor and psychotherapist with specialist training in Couples and relationship counselling. Combining counselling theory with kinesiology can have a profound effect on healing and integration.
Couples Counselling – Samantha Bladon
A Psychobiological Approach to Couples Therapy (PACT)
PACT was developed by Stan Tatkin (https://stantatkin.com).
Your relationship is one of the most important supports you can have in your life. We all want to feel safe and loved within our intimate relationships. Sometimes we forget this, or get distracted by our own assumptions about each other and how our relationship ‘should be’. This method of therapy focuses on reconnecting the couple by learning how to really listen, attend and understand each other’s perspective.
Sessions are usually 2 hours in length.
In 2018 Sam will be offering Couples Counselling at Moonee Ponds Mind Body Health Centre.
