I’m glad you’re here

I support your healing and growth through a holistic approach with attention to mind, body, social and creative aspects of self. Working from a place of compassion, we explore your capacities, connections, and belonging to self, community, and the world.

Counselling looks different for everyone. Whatever your therapeutic goals are, my goal is to support you to safely explore your own capacity for healing.

“Trudi is a warm, gentle counsellor and prioritizes comfort, safety, and connection with her clients. I highly recommend her/them.”

Neuroscience, safety, and connection

I help clients come home to themselves, recovering an internal sense of safety and wholeness. My counselling style is grounded in narrative therapy, somatic therapy, expressive arts therapy, ecotherapy and mindfulness. In addition to talk therapy, I work with the latest findings in neurobiology and somatic practice, such as Sensorimotor Psychotherapy (SP) and expressive arts. My approach is rooted in neuroscientific research about the role of the nervous system and neuroplasticity in healing, safety and connection.
