“Where you stumble, there lies your treasure.” – Joseph Campbell
This is a place for all those who have suffered at the hands of others, and are now dealing with the wounding that resulted.
Here you will not be told to ‘stop dwelling on the past’ or ‘all things happen for a reason’. You will not be given a deadline for your grief to be complete, and you will not be expected to be ‘over it’ by now.
There are some things that we never get over, despite the constant pressure from society to be happy. Happiness is just one of the many emotions we experience in a fully lived life.
It is possible to have a life filled with both happiness and sorrow – one does not preclude the other. But because some emotions are labelled ‘wrong’, we send them into battle against each other.
There are no bad emotions, they are all there for our expression of life and self. When we block them because we’re told they’re ‘bad’, we express them in other ways, often through the body.
This is a place for you to set down your pain for a little while, to explore its wisdom, and maybe when you pick it up again after listening a little, you’ll find your relationship to it has changed.
Our wounds, our sorrow, our trauma and grief, these things are holy. They deserve space, to be seen and heard and held. They tell us who we are.
|“Feeling heard is a true gift Leanne gave to me. It seems to me that she takes the whole person and the human experience into account and while she goes deep, she also brings an element of safety. I have a much deeper awareness now. She made me think about things differently and I like that. Many of my friends are counselors and therapists of some sort but without the metaphysical background. To have a higher awareness of life and the traditional tools to me is a WINNING combination.”

|“Before I came across Leanne’s work, I was going through a period where I felt cut off from my intuitive and creative nature and was repeating unhelpful stories about myself in my head and holding onto negative energy from the past. Since working with Leanne I have come up from the underground and I continue to find ways to apply the knowledge, deepened awareness, skills and strategies I have found on my journey.”

|“Working with Leanne felt very safe and supportive. The process was fun and well-structured, and I found it quite revealing and unexpected. It was a relief really to work through this issue and gain this new insight that I can now begin to act on. Leanne has crystallised the profound healing wisdom from her own deep experience and substantial professional studies into gems that enlighten the way for others.”
