Cleaning Your Home Cleanses Your Soul

Being organized does not come natural to most of us; it is a learned behavior. If you take a look around you, chances are that how you feel on the inside is not far behind what you see on the outside.

We can only have so much stuff. Clearing away the clutter, although it’s a job, can be a very rewarding accomplishment. It makes room for change on the inside, and what better time to do this than spring!

We often cling to material things because it gives us a feeling of comfort, value, sometimes even status. We are our stuff. It can be hard to rid ourselves of the things we have labored for, saved for, been given, or those cherished items that bring us memories of earlier times. It is the very stuff that can keep us in a time capsule.

For me, cleaning out a closet was a good start. Over a two year period, I set a limit of one box per family member for the items I can’t part with. However, this can be difficult if you live with a family. Just because you are ready to start purging and become a minimalist, does not mean everyone in the family is on board. I was lucky. I decided to part with many things when I became an empty nester.

I set it up as I would have wanted it if I knew I was going to pass on. My children were given the family heirlooms while still alive, and I can watch them have the enjoyment of using them. It was not easy to see that many of the things I wanted to give away were not meaningful to others; I had to accept that they were my memories, not my families.

The attic, the basement and the garage were all downsized. I needed to do this for my spirit. I was overloaded, like an old computer hard-drive. It was full. Some of the decorations that I had not seen in years, went on the Christmas tree one last time. Some knick knacks were put out for a few weeks before they went to a new home. The sweater my sister loved was now hers. It was a grieving process I decided to go through so that I could grow.

Recycling the various items was something that I knew I had to do. Many people now have the things that at one time meant so much to me. It is a sense of freedom that I can’t explain. I have room in my spirit to grow into where I want to be. There is space available in my mind to learn the things that I want to have more knowledge of; a sense of freedom to move on to be a more peaceful soul.

April 22, the phase of the full moon, is a great time to work on things you wish to remove from your life; to start purging and get organized. This phase will insure that your project runs smoothly, with fewer complications and a clearer thinking process for the decisions you’ll be making. You will want to smudge your home when you’re finished, to bring in spiritual cleanliness for your new beginning.

Individual Counselling Session (60 minutes)

I offer a compassionate counselling service that is unique to every woman and her situation. Allowing you to feel heard and understood in a safe environment free from shame and judgement.

My aim is to support and empower women through periods of change and emotionally difficult times. Empowering women to navigate their life and the mess that it can sometimes feel like it’s in with insight, respect, hope and strength.

I believe you have the desire and the capacity to grow towards fulfilling your true potential, and that you’re the expert on your own life. Counselling is a way of assisting you to identify and define your emotional issues and to help you better understand yourself.

Therefore, I don’t give advice. I will work with you to help you understand yourself more fully and to find your own inner resources. With greater self-awareness and trust in yourself, I hope that you will be able to make constructive changes, leading to a more satisfying and meaningful life.

I apply an integrated approach to counselling, meaning that I combine different but complementary counselling methods that have been taken from different models of therapy. These are Person-Centred Therapy, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Solution Focused Therapy. Using an integrative approach allows me to be flexible in providing a service that suits your situation.

I offer face-to-face and online individual counselling sessions, allowing women to openly talk about their emotional challenges.

Are you seeking a therapist that sees you as a whole person - mind, body, and spirit, in the context of your lived experience and culture? Do you need someone to meet you where you are, without assumptions? Are you seeking help in your personal growth and healing?

All clinicians and support options are not the same. I am guided by a core philosophy that all human beings have an innate desire for balance, healing, and growth. Your definition of these concepts and your journey to achieve them is unique to you, your child, or your family.
