Spiritual Counseling for Individuals and Couples with Paula
Sessions are grounded in the principles of yogic philosophy as a common lens through which to understand each individual’s uniqueness. Using the basic yogic principles of love and compassion, we will create a path of growth for the couple or individual, resulting in a deepened sense of self-awareness and acceptance.
Who is this for?
Anyone who is feeling stuck and wants to take an alternative look at life.
Is this the same traditional therapy ?
Yes and no — while our work has some commonalities with therapy, it looks deeper into how the mind functions. Where there are patterns that have become obstacles, techniques such as meditation and hypnosis will be employed.
Why would couples come?
Couples can come into a session for a variety of reasons. Some come because they feel stuck and need to heal, because they want to close a relationship with love, or because they want to expand their capacity to love. Whatever the case may be, we will work together to enhance your understanding of each other and yourself.
What can I expect?
Each session begins with dialogue to determine and establish a shared understanding of the individual’s (or couple’s) wants, needs and obstacles–pinpointing the most relevant life issues. Once we identify a goal, we will employ methods including movement, breathing techniques, meditation and hypnosis.
I met Paula about 3.5 years ago in a very dark place in my life, and she literally brought me back to life, to love and to myself! Since then Paula has been coaching me through some very big transitions in my personal and professional life. I could not have navigated through these changes with as much honesty, grace and love without her help. Today, her coaching skills continue to help me identify and focus on the most important aspects of life and face the fears that hinder me from living life to its fullest. She helps me keep an open and loving heart towards myself and others, while utilizing my core values to make judgements and adjust to change. You’ll be in great hands if you decide to work with her!
In the brief amount of time that I have been working with Paula, I have uncovered some of the most entrenched and uncomfortable layers I never knew were there. She has provided me the insight, support, and direction to open myself to unfold unlike anyone else I have ever worked with. Her compassion and awareness allow me to feel seen and held in a space safe enough to explore ingrained patterns and beliefs, and to challenge these so that I can connect to my true essence of love again. For the first time in my life, I am unlocking pieces of my own truth, and I am able to sit in all spaces with a curiosity, knowing that each week she will be there to support me through the process of identifying and releasing whatever emerges. She is a truly gifted and magical woman that I am so grateful to have connected with at this time.
Paula is richly intuitive and, at the same time, pragmatic in her guidance. The depth of her tremendous presence helps me explore the patterns of my conscious and unconscious mind, but also speaks to the heart of the matter. I leave our sessions feeling heard, grounded, and clear.
