Simon Tennant

Devoted to Wellness

 

I am here with a kind and compassionate ear, to listen and support you on your journey to becoming the best version of yourself. How might your life be if you were able to heal and learn from your past and change your old patterns?

 

I can help support you with:

  • your relationship to self and others
  • anxiety/depression
  • sexual trauma
  • communication and emotional expression
  • grief/loss
  • self-worth
  • finding purpose and more.

 

Counselling Services

With kindness and compassion, I provide a safe space to explore what is happening for you and how it is shaping your life.

Life throws us all sorts of challenges that mold who we are. All our relationships (to self, family, friends, culture, environment..), continually shape our experience and how we see the world. The world at times might look bright and beautiful, and in the next moment, dark and scary. It is these changing experiences of ourselves that counselling seeks to bring greater awareness and understanding to.

Do you find at times that you have parts of you pulling in opposite directions creating conflict and a feeling of being stuck?
Do the old patterns in your life still serve you?
When we become more conscious of what is driving our behaviours and decisions, we can integrate and choose healthier more life enhancing ways to navigate life.

Through our counselling sessions together you will learn to know yourself better, integrate your past, cope with the difficult times and connect with a sense of purpose and direction in your life.

 

Counselling Approach

I work as a Psychosynthesis counsellor. Which simply means bringing together mind, body and spirit into a unified whole. This provides a context to work with a wide range of methods and techniques to personalise the sessions to the individual. It is a fusion of both Western analytic ‘depth’ psychology and Eastern meditative ‘height’ psychologies, Psychosynthesis allows us to look and integrate the past, see how it affects the present and explore your future potential.

 

Background and Experience

I have worked clinically with clients in Homeopathy, Kinesiology, Nutrition and life coaching for over 10 years. The last 3 years I have dedicated my practice to counselling. I am in regular bi weekly supervision.
