Welcome

I’m Anne de Silva

As a registered counsellor and somatic psychotherapist, I support people to live in a more compassionate and embodied way, without doing more, earning more or having more. With deep respect for each person’s path, we travel together awakening hidden gifts beneath our day to day lives.

Since starting my own healing journey at the tender age of 21, the joys and challenges of family, loss, work and relationship have been my training ground. I am strongly influenced by Hakomi mindful somatic psychotherapy, movement practice, conscious parenting approaches, experiential and play-based learning, mindful sexuality and somatic meditation. I work with individuals and groups in a trauma-informed way.

With a Masters degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy, I also have specialist training in Hakomi Mindful Somatic Psychotherapy and  Hakomi Embodied and Aware Relationship Therapy (HEART). I am a member of the Psychotherapy & Counselling Federation of Australia (PACFA).

What is Body Mind Counselling?

Whatever brings us here, it probably started with new or old ‘unprocessed’ experiences, that become stored in our system.

Body mind counselling supports healing by tapping into our innate capacity to release stuck experiences, and repair and rewire patterns that no longer serve us. By incorporating the body and mind in an integrated way, this can support change at a deeper level than just talking.

Somatic (body inclusive) approaches call us to reconnect with our nature through aligning our body, mind and heart, making healing possible for us, and beyond us.

Sessions

It’s an act of courage to really meet ourselves where we are, and take steps towards a new way of being. Counselling sessions are personalised to help improve well being and psychological health if:

  • You’ve been impacted over by a big change or event
  • A pattern in your relationships isn’t working
  • You feel a sense of emptiness or loss
  • You’re exhausted and over-committed
  • You feel separate and long for connection
  • You’re at a turning point or life transition
  • Your fuse is short or you’re extra sensitive
  • You feel flat and want to find your spark.

Body mind counselling and somatic psychotherapy sessions can support you unblock stuck patterns, increase intuitive clarity, reduce tension and connect you with a more calm, stable, embodied state and equip you with inner resources you can call on when needed.

Sessions are typically 1 hour, in person. Extended length sessions and voice or video sessions are available if needed.

Workshops & events

I run workshops for parents about preparing for meeting your child’s teen years and hold circles for women to explore embodiment and personal growth. Register with the contact form below to be kept in the loop about upcoming offerings.
