Hunter Elyse

Through my own journey healing from C-PTSD, I learned first-hand the vital importance of working with the body. Therefore, my approach to counselling is a holistic one - integrating mind, body, and spirit. When we experience something that overwhelms our nervous system's ability to cope, a common protective response is to live in our head and become disconnected from our body and our soul. I support you in reconnecting to the parts of yourself that you may have abandoned or left behind somewhere along the way, so that you are able to experience ALL of who you are.

I can support you in increasing your awareness of your parts, patterns, and capacities so that you have a clearer understanding of your inner landscape and feel like you have more control over yourself and your life. I am a certified breathwork facilitator, and have completed up to Intermediate level III in my Somatic Experiencing (SE) professional training.
