Soul-centred counselling, energy healing, Kundalini Yoga (as taught by Yogi Bhajan) and meditation
I am available by appointment for Counselling, Energy Healing or Meditation instruction at Bikram Yoga Fitzroy, 24-26 Johnston St Fitzroy.

"When you understand who and what you are, your radiance projects into the universal radiance and everything around you becomes creative and full of opportunity." Yogi Bhajan
We all contain the seeds for our own healing growth. Sometimes we need the guidance and support of a mirror in whose reflection we can see ourselves reframed. Therapeutic work can be that mirror. I can work with you through:
stress and anxiety
depression and self-doubt
grief, loss and trauma
crises of meaning and purpose
breaking addictions and other patterns that no longer serve you
finding a transformative, daily practice (ie meditation/yoga)
We are collectively moving through a time of great change involving a myriad of stressors. A daily practice like meditation can support your nervous system and therefore your mind and emotions to move forward through the challenges you currently find yourself within - with grace, consciousness and maybe even good humour!

I am a Transpersonal Counsellor, Reiki practitioner and Kundalini Yoga teacher. Having practiced yoga for over nine years, I have first-hand experience of the transformative insight and access to internal resources possible through a daily practice with intent, and as a result, am very passionate about discovering the secrets that the body has to offer, and sharing this enthusiasm with others.
I use a range of therapeutic techniques to assist my clients to access the innate wisdom they possess to navigate their own authentic journey. I am dedicated to ongoing process work via my yoga practice, meditation and am completing further study in the area of psychology and social work in order to be continually effective for my clients.
ABOUT MY SESSIONS
Counselling - I use a combination of emotion-centred counselling and creative therapies, such as focussing, guided meditation and dream work.
Reiki is a way of working with life force energy in a gentle, non-confrontational way for a healing outcome. It is useful to those for whom shifts in the body and mind have occurred, but on a level that may not be grasped by the conscious mind, thus remaining unintegrated. Following a reiki session, my clients can experience a sense of deep relaxation, a release of trapped emotions and further personal insights.
Yoga - “Kundalini yoga classes are a dynamic blend of postures, pranayam, mantra, music and meditation, which teach you the art of relaxation, self-healing and elevation. Balancing body and mind enables you to experience the clarity and beauty of your soul. No previous experience in yoga is required for you to achieve results with your very first class.” Yogi Bhajan-Master of Kundalini Yoga
Meditation -Meditation is a means of returning to one’s true nature—the space that resides behind the behaviours, behind the beliefs, behind the chatter and the noise. It is our birthright. Meditation is the process involved with reaching these outcomes, rather than the outcomes themselves. There is a widespread perception that meditation is that which occurs when we sit in lotus position, hands in gyan mudra, eyes closed: instant stillness of mind. If only it were that easy! I can teach you a range of meditation techniques to find the best one for your needs.

"I had experienced a loss in my life which woke me up to the fact that I wasn't living the way I wanted to, nor was I happy. I'd been to counselling before and found it to be very helpful in getting through difficult or confusing times. I chose to work with Melissa this time because she seemed more holistic and I also wanted to try Reiki.
As a result of our sessions, Melissa assisted me to find clarity and gave me strategies for self empowerment. I am now on a really fulfilling path and am able to maintain my own happiness, using the skills Melissa has taught me. Melissa empowered me to find my own way, never interrupting my journey, just shining light through a dark time. I am very grateful and will definitely work with Melissa in the future." Kate
"Melissa is a being of light who listens with tender love and offers humble guidance to assist you on your journey. I felt immediate shifts from the reiki sessions, blockages were cleared and I experienced much awakening clarity.
I am thankful and feel blessed to have Melissa guide me through my stormy waters to a place of stillness." Sally
“I have received several Reiki sessions with Melissa Laing. Melissa has a natural ability to put you at ease, make you feel comfortable, allow you to open yourself to receiving the healing energy of Reiki.
Each session I've had with Melissa has been during particularly stressful periods - general stress, feeling unwell and during grief - and each time I have experienced a definite shift in my energy flow. With this shift comes a greater awareness of how you are holding on to tension, stress and emotional energy in your body. Through the awareness comes another shift in the way one deals with stressful situations ongoing.” Lisa, yoga instructor
Contact me about a consultation if you would love to be free from old narratives, stuck emotional energy and patterns that no longer serve you, thus enabling you to live a life of meaning, self-love and unclouded awareness.
"Experience yourself and all in you; in that unisonness is the beauty of life. Otherwise you will be a victim of your own perpetual fear." Yogi Bhajan
