Transpersonal Counselling

"Life is full of losses. And it is filled with beauty. When you are battered sometimes it feels hard to carry on. An existential crisis is a moment at which an individual questions the very foundations of their life: whether this life has any meaning, purpose, or value. As the armour around our hearts begin to fall off due to painful events, some people begin their journey of awareness. This is one of life's greatest beauties, despite the pain. To those who awaken theirs souls and hearts , you are a true spiritual warrior".

Soul Centred Psychology & Therapy is not about fixing something that is broken, but rather about attending to the rich language of soul as it manifests in everyday life. We honour the human experience in all its entirety and complexity.

Personal issues impact every human being both physically and emotionally. Transpersonal Counselling is a wonderful way to find inner peace and well being. During these sessions we will focus on the areas in life where we have dis-empowering patterns and problems that create anxiety, stress, depression or grief, such as, relationships. Intimacy, work, money, body, health, etc, and transform them.

In a world of brief therapy and quick fixes, Soul Centred Psychology/Therapy offers in depth relational therapy that incorporates cutting edge therapeutic modalities in trauma and energy based psychology.

You will gain the ability to think and interact in new ways and to explore each area of your life with freedom and originality.

When this happens, something else becomes available. Discover a life where you naturally and easily attract and manifest your dreams.

"The foundation of my work has always been to provide a bridge between western psychology and post modern spirituality through the practice of Transpersonal Psychotherapy , Mindfulness based theories , Meditation , Yoga and Energy Medicine".

Transpersonal Counselling dissolves the tension in the body and helps to reveal and release the emotional holding patterns and trauma held in body/mind. Acknowledged, expressed , witnessed and integrated, these events and memories cease to have an emotional grip on your life, allowing you to live more consciously and empowered.

Her use of contemporary therapies such as Reiki, Mindfulness, Primordial Meditation, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Existential, Non Dual and Transpersonal Psychotherapeutic approaches allow for deep and rapid transformation restoring health, wellness and self empowerment.

Self Inquiry


Self-enquiry is a central practice in a new evidence-based therapy called Radically Open Dialectical Behavior Therapy (RO DBT). This therapy is designed for people who are overcontrolled (i.e., people who are excessively self-controlled or inhibited), but the practice can be helpful for anyone interested in learning more about themselves.


Self-enquiry is a kind of mindfulness practice in which you ask yourself good questions to help you find your “edge.” Your edge is your personal unknown – the place where you have something to learn. Through taking us to our edge, self-enquiry helps us to understand our experiences in new ways, develop new behaviors, and fill in our blind spots (but the good news is there will always be more blind spots to fill in).


Our edge usually occurs in situations where we feel uncomfortable. An edge can often be found whenever we find ourselves struggling with a feeling, ruminating about a problem, strongly defending against or rejecting feedback or criticism, or quickly agreeing with feedback or criticism from others. We can often feel it in our body – tightness in the chest, rapid breathing, butterflies in the stomach, clenching fists, numbness, desires to walk away.


Practicing self-enquiry can help us to see these situations as opportunities for growth rather than as problems. Situations where distress arises often tell us that some expectation we have is not being met, a belief is being challenged, some feedback is occurring, or that one of our goals is not being met. Self-enquiry helps us grow from these opportunities to learn, so that we can respond more adaptively to ever changing life circumstances.


Self-enquiry involves turning toward our distress with the intention to learn from it. Self-enquiry involves looking for our edge (i.e., our personal unknown) and asking ourselves good questions that can help us learn. The most central self-enquiry question is “what do I need to learn (from this situation or experience)?”



Love’s Breath is a fundamental practice of the Pathway of Mastery that is integrated with Radical Inquiry to bring about profound and rapid transformation. This practice retrains the body to breathe more freely, allowing its natural energy streams to become unblocked and integrated. Love’s Breath offers a pathway to growth, freedom, awakening, illumination, creativity, and most importantly, to that peace that surpasses all understanding. It is a powerful tool that can help you connect with your inner self and experience a deeper sense of peace and well-being.

During a session, Robyn will guide you into the deepest levels of awakened Presence, where you will experience a dimension of yourself which is already whole and complete and is free of all the pain and limitations of the past. To experience this dimension of your Self, even for a few minutes, is life transforming.

Robyn offers the clearest possible guidance for those on a spiritual path of awakening. She has a remarkable ability to tune into each person's needs and gently guide them through a process of healing and release into wholeness, integration and the awakened state of Being. She places much importance on taking responsibility for your self and she encourages and supports you to learn the lessons that your current life experiences are revealing to you.
