Providing support for individuals, couples, families and organisations, integrating Breathwork, Family Constellations, Holistic Counselling and Psychotherapy, when you choose to make a commitment to your self, Jonine will work with you to create a program for change.

Your program will be tailored specific to your individual needs and may incorporate any of the following techniques:
  • Holistic Counselling
  • Psychotherapy
  • Family Constellations
  • Breathwork Therapy
  • Life Coaching
  • Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP)
  • Voice Dialogue
  • Innerchild
  • Sand Play
  • Meditation and Breathing Techniques
  • Breathe Awareness Constellations
When Counselling is combined with Breathwork Therapy profound transformation and healing are possible. You will be supported as you access unconscious beliefs and past conditioning that prevent you from realising your goals.

Relationship Counselling

Relationship Counselling focuses on the needs and desires of each individual in the couple. A safe space is created for the communication of the respective needs and acknowledgement of their importance.

Family Constellations

Family Constellations will make clear the links between unresolved grief; resentment and anger with the family of origin and their effect on our current relationships and well-being.

Some of the reasons you might seek therapy or counselling with Jonine are:
  • When you're experiencing anxiety, depression, grief, loss, or separation
  • When you'd like to change your inner belief system
  • To resolve painful emotions associated with events from the past
  • To create relationship agreements and vision statements
  • To enhance your communication skills
  • When you need support to achieve your goals
  • To enhance your self-esteem and self-confidence
  • When you need support with fertility or sexual challenges
  • When you'd like to clarify your life purpose
  • To enhance your parenting skills
Jonine will work with you to create the program you need to achieve your goals, whatever they might be.

Breathwork Therapy

Breathwork sessions enable you access to the region of the brain that holds early history and conditioning, which allows you the ability to release repressed emotional responses that have been held in your body. From here you are in a position to re-evaluate and alter your perspective of what happened, this re-framing of events will free you to experience life from a place of choice, as opposed to reaction.

Breathwork supports you as you increase your awareness of your true wants and needs, as opposed to what you think others want from you. This process enables you to become your reference point for decisions and choices. Breathwork enhances your ability to make a connection with and understand the underlying cause of any symptoms that cause stress and dysfunction in your life and behaviours.

Depression & Anxiety

Depression and anxiety are becoming increasingly prevalent and are symptoms that make no distinction, touching people from all walks of life. The long-term suppression or denial of our instinctive emotional responses to life’s events accumulate and can contribute significantly to depression. Keeping a 'lid on' these repressed responses tends to generate even greater fear and anxiety of experiencing overwhelm, or of showing our vulnerability, leading us to create further mechanisms to continue our patterns of avoidance. Once this cycle is put in place, we operate in a loop, which puts an enormous amount of pressure on the adrenal system.

One of the saddest things about this recurring state of repression is that it can also cause us to suppress our positive emotions. This in turn thwarts our ability to achieve our creative potential. Breathwork is unquestionably one of the most effective methods of connecting to your emotions and beginning to feel comfortable in expressing them in a healthy way.

At the core of every symptom is an unmet need, want or desire, all of which are usually beyond our conscious awareness. Breathwork is a potent and efficient tool for accessing your subconscious, understanding your core needs and taking care of them in a constructive manner. The most important relationship we have is with ourselves - once we have that functioning well, we are better able to welcome others into our lives.

How many Breathwork sessions would I need to do?
One session might be enough to give you the insight you need, although it is more usual for a series of two to three sessions in order to gain the maximum benefit and achieve lasting change. Once you've worked out what your long-term goals are, we will collaborate on a program of support.

Family Constellations

"Connecting to life and love through reaching out"

This is an opportunity to experience a soulful weekend of insights into successfully changing negative behavioural patterns and blocks to achieving harmony in all areas of life.

  • Relationship, parenting challenges
  • Blended families and step-parenting issues
  • Lack of purpose or directionvUnderstanding the cause of health or weight challenges
  • Infertility or sexual issues
  • Depression/Anxiety
  • Unresolved entanglements with past relationships/family of origin
  • Adoption
  • Grief and loss
  • Divorce or separation
The goal of this therapy is to broaden or alter your outlook on a situation, past or present, enabling you to gain the insight and resolution you need to bring about lasting change and healing. This is a respectful process, involving little or NO knowledge of the people or situations involved being shared with other participants in order for you to achieve your ideal outcome. This process is not about telling the stories of what occurred within our family, it's about observing the effect the relationships and events have had on us and determining means of instigating the change required for healing.

We are more often than not unaware of the effects unresolved grief; resentment and anger with our families of origin have on our present-day relationships and overall feeling of well-being. These patterns are carried with us into all of our relationships and are subsequently handed down through the generations.

This therapy will help to encourage balance, harmony and respect for each family member. When participants become aware of their rightful place within their family unit, they're able to relax and disengage from uncomfortable patterns. This process offers the opportunity to move forward, leaving historic issues behind.

If you don't want to do your own constellation, there are different levels of participation, enabling you to access the insights on offer by being present and of service in other peoples' constellation. Call Jonine to hear about the different costs.

Private Sessions
I also offer private sessions in Family/Organisational Constellations for individuals and couples or to offer organisations insight. These can be carried out in person or by phone/skype.
