    I've had some of the most profound realisations and shifts in my sessions with Marissa. I'm incredibly grateful for her support, guidance and love which has helped me move through some of the most challenging moments in my relationships. When I originally came to see Marissa it was for my anxiety and helplessness that I was experiencing in my daily life, which very quickly resolved within a few sessions. This led me into a deeper inquiry of my personal relationships, and in there I found so much gold with Marissa! I've learnt to trust myself and my body's innate wisdom so much more since working with her. I've discovered how rich, deep and vast my inner landscape is and how pure, loving and innocent my heart is, which has become a real strength and super power for me. It feels incredibly empowering to know I have so much resource and wisdom within me, that Marissa helped me to discover and tap into. Thank you Marissa for holding me in such a safe, supporting and loving space each and every week which allowed me to unfold to my truth in the most beautiful way. Thank you so deeply.

    I have been seeing Marissa in her capacity as a holistic counsellor for weekly sessions for 12 months. After I discovered my husband of 50 years had been lying to me, cheating on me and living a double life, I was utterly devastated and suicidal. My doctor sent me to a clinical psychologist and I met with her many times. The day this psychologist said I 'should be over it', I didn’t see her again. That’s when I found Marissa - I wanted and needed more than just talk. Marissa champions me. She is an absolute delight and I love being in her company. She always makes me a cup of herbal tea when I meet her in her comfortable and inviting consulting room. Marissa is gentle, compassionate and reassuring and helped me move through the grief at my own pace with great suggestions and support to reclaim my life as my own and to fill me with Hope for the future. I learned simple and effective techniques to stop the destructive ruminating thoughts. We did many visualisations and depth processes which for me were very powerful and to this day I recall them when I have a sad moment which I am happy to say are few and far between now. Marissa helped me to live my life every day with positive and empowering messages to myself which I now carry with me. Marissa encouraged me to draw and write about my feelings. She encouraged me to dream and be bold about my life. I had always wanted to go caravanning and so I went out and bought a 4 ton motorhome and have been living on the road for 3 months now. Yesterday I drove into the Northern Territory.  I have so much more belief in myself, I can see how strong, resilient and capable I really am. With Marissa‘s love, enthusiasm and encouragement, I am finding my way back to the person I used to be. I can access Marissa’s wonderful counselling service by making a phone appointment with her while I’m out on the road. She texts me to see how I’m going from time to time because she really cares about me. Marissa cares. The grief process was brutal for me. I accept now that the marriage breakup was inevitable and I am surviving and thriving as a result of the progress I have made with Marissa’s help, compassion, empathy, holistic techniques and support.



    Marissa has really helped me to discover more about who I am and to understand and honour my authenticity, needs and desires...and to enjoy the journey of unfolding, self-discovery and acceptance in itself rather than just seeing it as something "I have to do" in order to improve my mental health and wellbeing. I have gotten so much from my sessions with Marissa
