Courage, Compassion, Climate Change: Early Earth Day Event

Please join us at this retreat in April. The increasing instability of the world’s weather systems and the disruptions they cause have made climate change a serious mental health issue. Disoriented and anxious, many of us experience ecological grief, distress and even depression, often on an unconscious level. On the eve of Earth Day, we’ll face the hard facts about climate change, explore how this affects our emotional and mental wellbeing, engage our feelings through artistic expression, share practices that cultivate courage and compassion to keep on living bravely in ways that benefit our communities, and get outside on the healing land of the Ignatius Jesuit Centre.

Date: Sunday, April 21st, 2024 from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. $25, Bring your own lunch.

Meet Natalie

I'm a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) and I have a PhD in Philosophy. I'm here to provide you with a safe and compassionate place to support you in counselling and psychotherapy.

My approach to psychotherapy and counselling is holistic and informed by my background in philosophy and my own personal experiences. You'll find I'm just as comfortable talking about things like values, ethics, meaning and purpose as well as the full range of emotions and challenges we all feel as part of the human experience, like anxiety, sadness and grief.

I  can also incorporate nature into therapy through eco therapy and other nature-based approaches like walk and talk therapy.


If you might be interested in group therapy or a Climate Cafe, please send me an email to express your interest.

A mindful, compassionate and trauma-sensitive approach to counselling and psychotherapy

I specialize in evidence-based, mindful and compassionate approaches to support you in your experiences with different types of losses, grief, anxiety, depression, trauma and the stresses you are feeling related to your personal or professional life.

You might be feeling overwhelmed, burnt out, exhausted, sad, anxious, or you might not be able to express what you're feeling in words. You might also be grieving a loss of a loved one, a relationship or be in the midst of a major life change.


My years of teaching as well as learning and training in approaches such as EMDR, Internal Family Systems, Compassion-Focused Therapy and Mindfulness allow me to tailor counselling according to your goals and needs.

Anxiety, Depression, Grief, Loss or Existential Concerns

For anyone who would like to reduce their feelings of anxiety or depression, or discuss issues related to their life's meaning and purpose or gain support for their grieving process

Traumatic experiences, complex PTSD

For anyone who has experienced a traumatic event or childhood/developmental trauma including abuse or neglect (EMDR and Internal Family Systems)

Eco and climate anxiety and other climate emotions

For anyone feeling strong emotions in relation to climate change, loss of biodiversity and ecological damage (Climate cafes are also available)

Mountain Landscape

Individual therapy is online or by phone and evening/weekend appointments are available. Flexibility in scheduling outside of posted hours.

Contact me

I offer a free 15 minute consultation. Book yourself an appointment to meet with me.


Only by purposively bringing our attention to our inner experience can we move from trance toward healing.
