I have been described as a healthy tree hugging hipster, creative, motivated, dynamic, quirky, nurturing and resourceful! That’s a lot to live up to, but one thing I’m certain of: I'm still a work-in-progress.
But putting all labels aside, and seeing through other perceptions, deep down I’m just a 40 (something) year old girl whose core value in life is to feel fully connected. Connected to all living things: people, animals, nature and myself.
Kindred Self is my way to nourish this core value each and every day. I love to share stories, tender moments and support people who need nurturing and kindness in their life. I have a lot of that to give!!
How I arrived here ...
My path to Kindred Self began about 7 years ago when I first felt a strong sense that one day I would do healing work. A year or so later while travelling and staying at a Meditation Retreat in Cambodia, I was introduced to Psychotherapy / Transpersonal Counselling. The seed was deeply planted and four years on, my passion has only grown since that moment.
I feel I have found my purpose, something that is heartfelt and supports me at my core. I can sit alongside multiple individuals in one day, truly hold a nurturing and supportive space for them and feel absolutely invigorated afterwards. That energy is felt by my clients.
Kindred Self ...
People choose massage for ongoing maintenance of the body and I believe counselling is the same. Tending to our emotions and feelings is just like a gentle massage for the heart and mind! Through maintaining a good balance between mind, body, emotions and spirit, we can purposely give any situation in life our best, kindred self.
Kindred represents the connection and resonance we can experience with others, and Self is a reminder that YOU are the most valuable thing that you have! So, Kindred Self is all about creating an experience to connect with and give back to yourself. In doing so, an opening for healing, self love, growth and abundant living is realised.
Through my practise, my goal is to break down any stigma associated with mental and emotional health and to challenge the thought that counselling is something we only look to do when life gets tricky. Imagine the amazing growth and insight we could personally achieve when we are not clouded by our suffering!!
Let’s live to be the best version of ourselves! Yes please!
From Our Clients
"I initially began seeing Kyrie regarding the loss of contact with my family. I was not in a good place emotionally and bore guilt and hatred, something I didn’t want in my life anymore. Through working with Kyrie on the initial issue I found myself able to finally feel at peace with my decisions and let go of the hatred. I found myself stronger and happier. I began to work on myself which is where I got so much personal growth. I couldn’t ever put my needs ahead of anyone in my family or work. I worried constantly about my children and their wellbeing and happiness. I had no time for me, which essentially ended up weighing me down. Kyrie sets a really supportive space, one where you feel you can address, discuss and release those areas that usually stay hidden. Since working with Kyrie my initial issue is no longer a problem in my life, which has set in motion so many personal changes. My self-worth as a person is my greatest gift to myself since this healing began and I cannot personally thank Kyrie enough."
– Brooke, Andrews Farm
"From the first session I knew Kyrie was going to be the person to help me. She is like talking to a long term caring friend, only in a very professional manner. She listens and offers great insight and different perspectives. Although I personally have a long way to go, Kyrie is teaching me ways to relax my mind and change negative thoughts into positive ones. I highly recommend her."
– Laura, Rosewater
"Having always been a people pleaser, I'd noticed myself changing and felt a little stuck about how to handle this – so I decided to talk to Kyrie. She was warm and accepting, suggesting practical techniques to use. The message I took away from our time, was to be kind and respectful to not only myself, but those around me who may not understand what I'm going through. Some people just 'get' people and Kyrie is one of them - giving you permission to just 'be'. She is a beautiful, positive soul that radiates strength and authenticity - while offering a safe, non judgemental place to explore your being. THANK YOU, Kyrie!"
– Paige, Welland
"This is not something I've done before or thought I needed, however I was very relaxed and at ease with Kyrie. I would certainly recommend and see her again."
– Nicole, Barossa Valley
"Kyrie has a wonderful way of making you feel relaxed and at ease. She is compassionate, wise and finds such positive insights in the most negative situations. She made me feel brave just by stepping through the door."
– Heather, Semaphore
"Kyrie from Kindred Self is such a warm and compassionate person. She made me feel comfortable and totally at ease to be able to express myself in a nurturing and professional environment. My counselling session resulted in me feeling so much clearer, calmer and focused. Counselling is now a regular part of my life."
– Chantell, Semaphore
"Having great personal support is the key to creating success within business and everyday life. My monthly session with Kyrie forms an essential part of my personal support structure. She receives her clients with warmth, empathy and a profoundly positive regard. I always leave feeling nourished and empowered. I recommend her service very highly."
– Asha Eidolon from Transform with Asha
