In the end what matters most is;
how well you lived, loved, learned and let go.

A SOUL’S JOURNEY can take on many forms from exploring an old repetitive pattern that is ready to release in counselling, doing some emotional body release work to lighten your body and nervous system, coaching and helping inspire a new creative project to be manifested to attending or watching an inspiring video or podcast. 

Regardless of the form, I believe each of us are here on earth for one crucial purpose; to learn how to fully love both ourselves and others. Along the way of living, we are offered and bump up against many of life’s challenges, lessons and teachers. Some come in clear, organized packages others more chaotic and disruptive. In order to fully embrace our lives with passion and integrity, it is important that we let go of the burden we carry around from old hurts, disappointments, losses anger and shame that have kept us stuck and living in old survival patterns. In order to have made it through, we often made costly compromises and emotional pacts with ourselves where a part of us believes that somehow, we are responsible, inadequate, unlovable or not good enough that keeps us a prisoner of possibility. By lightening our heaviness, it becomes possible to live and love more fully.

A SOUL’S JOURNEY is about a quest for a deeper meaning and purpose in our lives.

I began seeing D’Arcy for counselling after my husband of 30 years died after a long struggle and debilitating illness. D’Arcy’s compassion, insight and ongoing multi-dimensional therapy created a sacred space within where I could understand and re-claim both my grief and mourning from complex trauma and a marriage battered with illness. I have found and learned through her wisdom, guidance, and step by step encouragement and process a more integrated body, mind and heart connection within.
