Soul-Centred Psychotherapy and Counselling

Soul-centred therapies offer ways to meet the challenges of life. Ways that combine the creative essence of soul work with some of the current understandings and practises from related fields such as mindbody healing, trauma processing, generative trance, neuroscience and energy psychology.

Therapy can be a support in relation to

  • stress management
  • anxiety
  • grief and loss
  • depression
  • health and body issues
  • PTSD, trauma processing, recovery and healing
  • life transitions and cycles
  • relationships

“And the day came when the risk it took to remain tight within the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” Anais Nin

Kairava is a founding director of The Nest, and a registered Soul-Centred Psychotherapist, Counselor and Therapeutic Deep-Tissue Bodyworker. She has worked in private practice since 1990. “I have worked with people for over 23 years, and offer an individual approach tailored to each person’s specific needs, whether in relation to current life challenges or long-standing issues. My work as therapist is to create a safe and supportive space where clients can open up and explore whatever is calling out for attention. The therapeutic relationship is a vessel in which one can grow and develop in new ways.

Body Transformation – The Art of Bodywork

Body Transformation is a leading edge approach to

  • releasing chronic pain, tension and imbalance in the body
  • healing mind/body splits and
  • helping to restore connection, alignment and presence.

Body Transformation releases and re-aligns the myo-fascia (the connective tissue surrounding the muscles) in a structured process that works sequentially and systematically over several sessions.

Deep tissue structural release is combined with some of the current research and practises from mind body healing therapies – generative trance, mindfulnesses, neuroscience and psychotherapy, enabling your sessions to be a real mind body soul experience.

“Your body is the ground metaphor of your life, the expression of your existence. It is your bible, your encyclopaedia, your life’s story.” Gabrielle Roth
