Deep healing and transformation for evolving women and men
Hello, my name is Rebecca Richards and I work with evolving women and men who are feeling a deep inner urge to live a more satisfying, integrated and connected life.
If this is you may long for a life steeped in more joy, connection, and fulfillment of your greatest potentials.
And you are wanting a breakthrough, in your personal life, in your career or deep in your heart and mind.
It can be so frustrating when you sense what is possible and to really want a shift but you keep getting stuck in self-doubt or anxiety or that cloud of depression returns again.
So frustrating to really sense what is possible, yet to struggle with repetitive family problems, unfulfilling relationships or work issues that seem to take up so much of your time – pulling you away from where you want to be.
You might think that this is your karma and you somehow need to tolerate and accept it. You may think that other people around you need to change. (that would be great!). You might think you just need more time and money (that might also help 🙂 ) Or that you just have to soldier on and deal with it or let it all go (great in theory but not so easy in practice).
However, the wonderful thing here is that the answers and solutions lie within you. Embedded in your body, heart, and mind.
The wisdom inside of you – is calling you.
And the reason some of this right now may feel so difficult is that the calling gets louder and louder until you begin to listen.
And that is what I do. I help you listen.
And I help you identify exactly where you are getting stuck, I help you get crystal clear about what is really going on.
And then I help you realise the deepest truths about you really are – in all your fullness and radiance.
And that then helps you create the life you were born to have from the inside out.
This support I offer is deeply attuned, gentle, empathic and crystal clear. And it is steeped in loving presence which creates a container of safety that allows the mystery of your deeper self to be revealed.
So if you are relating to any of this and you are want coaching, mentoring or counselling to make these inner shifts, to help get you out of a stuck place or a dark tunnel I would love to help you.
Contact me or text message and you can meet me face to face on zoom or skype or even face time.
Much love and many blessings
INNER WISDOM Counselling
The style of counselling I practice is different to the “talk and problem solving” style you might be familiar with. Instead this is therapy steeped in loving presence and a trust in the wisdom of your body and psyche. Within a safe holding environment you wll be guided on a gentle inner journey via the body to locate, release and repair the core original hurts that have been triggering the reoccurance of your painful emotional states, moods and life dilemmas.
This is a beautiful and amazing approach to therapy that gets you out of repetitive thinking patterns and into the deeper mysteries of your true nature. When you do this you will begin to feel more your true self than ever before.
blending ancient spirituality with contemporary therapeutic tools
The healing power of yogic practices such as yoga nidra and Buddhist practices of compassionate mindfulness are especially potent when combined with the most up to date therapeutic counselling tools and understandings.
This combination can help you heal pain from the past (which shows up in the present).
And I believe that healing your pain from the past is integral to your spiritual realisation just as spiritual insight and self awareness are integral to your deepest healing, the opening of your heart and freedom of your mind.
Live with more ease a heart full of joy and a deep trust in life
YOU DON’T NEED TO PUSH THROUGH ANYTHING
We try to overcome our inner and outer difficulties in many different ways. We might keep ourselves busy. We might focus on how we can fix others. We might launch ourselves into a new fitness regime. We might collapse in a heap and struggle to function in our life. We may even use practices such as meditation and yoga to manage our inner turmoil.
While immediately useful and understandable, these ways of coping can lead to the reoccurrence of the same painful circumstances and familiar experiences. Life tends to keep triggering the same inner wounds until we are able to claim and integrate these parts of ourselves.
The sweetest thing about Body Wisdom Counselling is that this therapy is gentle and wise and trusts implicitly in the natural urge of your soul to want to know and experience itself as whole. There is no requirement for you to do more or push through anything. Although as you understand yourself more and heal hurt parts of yourself you will begin to simply function better, with more ease, with a heart more full of joy and with a greater sense of trust in your journey, in your self and in life itself.
our conditioned mind
From much personal experience and exploration, I know the habitual attempts we make at trying to change ourself or modify our experience run deep. When we trace back through our history we see that in fact our ability to rest in the fullness of our true nature became compromised very early in our life. From infancy into adulthood our body, heart and mind store the history of how we learned to be in the world.
Most of us in some ways have had to conceal and protect the light of our true nature in order to survive within the family and social system we were brought up in. As we modified our behaviour and personal expression to stay safe, ego structures developed which clustered around our child self. From a yogic perspective, these structures or parts are collectively called the conditioned mind. Over time we lose contact with our essential self and become more identified with our many different thinking parts.
In Body Wisdom Counselling within the safe therapeutic container of acceptance, kindness and gentleness we are invited to go on an inner adventure to glean knowledge lying deep within our body, heart and mind. Attention is directed toward our moment to moment experience, guided by sensations in the body and the associated memories and thoughts that arise in the now.
When we explore our inner material in these delicate ways we begin to see the different parts of ourselves and how they relate to each other. We gain understanding about the repetitive ways our life keeps unfolding. We recognise how we have responded to situations, made choices and managed ourself through life. And while these strategies make sense given our earlier circumstances they may now no longer be relevant or useful or serving us in the best way possible.
Room for feelings
Sometimes in counselling we discover part of the problem has been we have been sitting on a well of big emotion like sadness, grief, fear or anger. There are so many ways we have learned to keep a lid on these feelings and when we do our felt sense of equilibrium is disturbed and we are unable to think clearly or act from our deepest intentions.
Within the attuned therapeutic environment healing happens when old trapped feelings and core beliefs are witnessed and released. This opens the way for experiencing our self as whole and complete which we then integrate in the body, heart and mind.
A beautiful magic happens when we follow our thread of present experience. The jewels of our being that lie dormant, protected and shielded from our regular view become illuminated. We find the qualities of our essence here and available.
We realise nothing was in fact missing and we discover and realise our felt sense of wholeness. Parts of ourselves that have been exiled are given a voice and we gain wisdom and insight from these offerings.
With this therapeutic approach we can strengthen new thinking and feeling pathways more congruent with the essence of who we are and where we want to go.
realise your essence
This potent approach can be helpful for resolving anxiety and depression, relationship difficulties, childhood issues, trauma and parenting dilemmas.
Also the feeling of being flat, stuck or wanting to gain clarity and a sense of purpose can be great places to start.
Physical pains and ailments that haven’t resolved with physical therapy can often have an emotional cause and therefore be aleviated once the core emotional material has been accessed and freed.
