Shushann is a experienced and mature counsellor, psychotherapist and soul life coach. She is a clinical member of PACFA and is the author of best-selling book, Puberty Girl (2004 Allen and Unwin).
As a holistic psychotherapist I draw on western psychological practices and eastern approaches to health and healing that integrate mind, body and spirit. Mental and emotional disturbances experienced from anxiety, depression, grief, anger or relationship difficulties impact our immune system, cloud our thinking and our ability to deal with everyday stressors. My work is to support you to put into practice behaviours that help reduce pain symptoms, calm your nervous system and open up channels for wellbeing, creativity and positive purpose.
An integrated approach is about empowering you to get more stable emotional and experience greater clarity and resilience in your personal and professional life.
The Hindu Goddess Kali is a feminine archetype that teaches us about the power of releasing clearing out and letting go as part of the cycle of creative manifestation. This is a not to be missed workshop in addressing old unhealthy relationship patterns and negative self beliefs.
Some of the methods and practices I draw from include:
These methods have been valuable in working with individuals as well as couples. Each client is supported with tools and resources that they can put into immediate practice for their long term healing and stabilising their experience of wellness.
“Thank you Shushann for helping us around some of the blindspots and holes we’d fall into around our communication. We’re starting to feel a little hope again that we can get through this rough patch in our life.” (Jeremy and Katrina – Sydney)
“Shushann has helped me through some really difficult times. I’ve appreciated her kindness and experienced support.” (Richard – Melbourne)
“I was very impressed by Shushann’s deep insight and ability to easily pick up on my issues and suggest ways of dealing with them. I found her non-judgemental and patient, which meant I felt safe and able to openly discuss things.”
(Sally – Sydney)
“Dear Shushann, You’re teaching me so much. I feel blessed and honoured to have you on ‘my team’. Thank you so much for your care.” (Mia – Sydney)
Mel Dee – A Soulful POW WOW
My latest interview with Mel Dee of PowerFm. Wonderful to be speaking about the importance of nurturing a soul path in the turmoil of mainstream media. For most women, finding the time to reflect inwards to hear that very important inner voice is often hard within our busy lives. With kids underfoot, a busy job and life’s other challenges Mel Dee thinks she’s found the solution! It comes in the form of a beautiful deck of cards created by myself and Gemma Summers, “Soulful Woman” Guidance Cards are an easy way to connect with your feminine self daily.
