Who Will Be Your Counsellor?

My name is Sheila Wood, and I have been a practising counsellor and psychotherapist for the last 30 years.

Throughout those three decades, I have had the great privilege of working with different kinds of people. Every single one of them has shown me distinct expressions of life and love as well as various levels of success and disappointment; joy and grief, pride and shame, advantages and challenges; and whatever being a human being entails. 

Today, I can say with great confidence that I have observed every single individual or couple has within themselves all the qualities needed to reach greater heights of success, contentment, and love that we all aspire to have in each of our lives.

After all these years and after being part of the lives of a multitude of people however short-lived, I have seen that there is always hope. There is always a way forward. I have realised that the light that shines on this path becomes brighter when an individual or couple is in a caring and respectful environment where there is space to grow within safe boundaries.

This type of environment is what I offer within InnerSpace. I offer face-to-face or online therapy for individuals and couples to address:

  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Relational Discord
  • Grief and Loss
  • Suicidal Thoughts
  • Obsession
  • Compulsion
  • Identity Disorder
  • Post Traumatic Stress
  • Personality Disorder 

What Is My Story?

Let me start by saying that I am a woman “of a certain age” who has amassed a substantially rich body of life experiences. My passion has been to make my life more meaningful by being of service to others as they traverse across the challenges of this amazing thing we call “Life”.

Being a mother and a grandmother, my trek through life has seen the joy of births, the growth of babies I have cared for into mature adults, and the paths they have taken in their own lives, however simple or complex those routes may have been.

I have inevitably faced the reality of aging and helped those close to my heart pass on from this living experience into an inexplicable and undefinable place beyond our knowledge or even imagination.

I had a corporate career once and it was at its peak when I began to question if I had taken the right path. It was then that I decided to devote a better part of four decades to learning the knowledge and skills that I am offering you today. 

​At first, I followed the paths of naturopathy, comparative religion and spirituality. It was on this journey that I found different counselling techniques. Then, I finally plunged myself into the depths of psychologies and the practice of analytical psychotherapy. And so, here I am today.

Let me also take this opportunity to introduce you to Jasmine, my mind dog whose fundamental work is to help me help you. She shares my determination and unwavering effort to help each and every single person whose life I become part of.
