About Diane Brusell Counselling
Services I offer: complimentary half hour consultation on the telephone or in person to gives us a chance to see if we are a good fit for counselling together. You are under no obligation to continue. If my practice is full or I feel I may not best meet your needs, I can refer you to one of my colleagues.
If we continue together I will provide consent and policy forms to be completed prior to our first session.
In our first session I will ask questions and prompt you to share reflections to generate insight and the direction for us to continue on. I will provide suggestion to how we may further proceed and together we shall assess, if any, of the other MODALITIES I offer can be of service to you. You will be supported throughout to listen deeply to yourself and communicate your needs, desires and understanding.
Additional Modalities. I have found that the therapeutic process can sometimes be enhanced by incorporating creative, exploratory experiences. You will have the opportunity to discover yourself anew through movement, posture, vocalization, writing, song writing, tactile creations, therapeutic gardening, yoga and/or theatrical representation. I will never ask you to do anything you’re not interested in trying as the work is intended to extend your understanding of your inner self. To help move through stagnation, confusion and frustration to more fulfilling states of being. But it will start with and return to your own innate interest and willingness. You will be continuously reminded to notice and listen to your own truth as the primary navigational tool.
Our bodies are often a short cut to understanding patterns that are no longer useful, and provide insight into new ways of being and expressing what is most needing to be heard. There is a vast intelligence and esoteric understanding available when we are willing to brave the discomfort of exploring our uncharted, inner terrain. It is my intention to create a space where you feel safe and supported to be seen and heard.
