SCIENCE BASED, INTEGRATIVE AYURVEDIC AND HOLISTIC COUNSELLING SERVICES

“THE BODY HAS BEEN DESIGNED TO RENEW ITSELF THROUGH CONTINUOUS SELF-CORRECTION. THESE SAME PRINCIPLES ALSO APPLY TO THE HEALING OF PSYCHE, SPIRIT, AND SOUL.”

- Dr. Peter A. Levine

AYURVEDIC AND HOLISTIC COUNSELLING SERVICES

At Mandaram, we approach counselling through seeing an individual as part of a greater whole - where we aim to work with our clients in finding the root cause (or core) of an imbalance or issue - whether this be mental, physical and/or emotional.

We work towards helping the individual break free of limiting thought patterns, belief systems, and behaviours and help them find the strength, courage and the resources necessary to be able to make the required changes to overcome difficulties and challenges, and move forward in life.

We also focus on providing our clients with the tools, skills and methods to be able to better manage the challenges of daily life; find more balance; be able to better navigate and facilitate change; pinpointing resistances and obstacles to change; finding more energy, motivation, joy and contentment in life; and feeling more empowered to create the life that they want.

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING AN INITIAL CONSULTATION WITH US

Working with a counsellor is part of an emotional journey, and is one where you need to be (a) comfortable with the process, (b) and feel comfortable with and trust the person that you will be working with on this journey. 

As such, our initial sessions generally cover the following aspects:

  • In a gentle and exploratory way, we will firstly discuss with you the issues and concerns that you have and then help you look at prioritising these issues and concerns. 
  • We will then discuss with you the options with respect to counselling, and discuss with you a forward plan that works for you.

OUR COUNSELLORS

WILLEM BOUMA

'Life is like two sides of the same coin … with joy and happiness also comes pain and suffering. The two are inextricably linked. Yet, it is the hard times, it is the really difficult times in one’s life that I have come to see - from my own personal experience - that often can be times of the most profound times of learning, healing and growing. We just need to have access to the tools, processes and understanding to be able to unlock this within ourselves.'

- Willem Bouma

Willem Bouma has a Graduate Certificate in Change Management, a Masters Degree in Holistic Counselling, is a qualified Life Coach and Meditation Teacher, and is also Ayurvedic bodywork therapist. Willem also has over 30 years experience as a communicator, mentor, coach and facilitator, both in Australia and internationally.

Willem has experienced first hand the trials and tribulations of the challenges that life can bring - including recovery from childhood trauma, loss, a highly aggressive form of cancer, separation and divorce, chronic stress, and establishing a more complete sense of self and life purpose. From his own experience, Willem knows the (at times arduous) journey of healing as a way of being able to move forward in life.

What underpins all of Willem's work with his clients is: Respect; care and attention; focus; and a deep understanding that each of us have our own challenges to face in life.

FIRE SANDERS

'I am a therapist not unlike the clients that I work with. I have my own life stories of trauma, abuse, pain, anxiety, panic attacks and my world falling apart, which I have had to face, work through and move forward from. So, when I work with my clients, it is with a knowing that whilst I cannot walk in their shoes, I can come from a place of deep understanding … and that all I offer to my clients, I practice in my own life as well.'

- Fire Sanders

Fire Sanders is a an Ayurvedic and Holistic Counsellor with a total passion for what she does and offers. Fire is an Ayurvedic Medicine Practitioner (Adv. Dip Ayurveda - the highest Ayurvedic Medicine qualification available in Australia), and has a Masters Degree in Holistic Counselling, and a Masters Degree in Biomedical Yoga Therapy, Meditation and Allied Health. She also has over 25 years experience as a communicator, mentor and coach, both in Australia and internationally.

Fire knows first hand the pain of long term emotional and health challenges and the impact of this on life in all aspects. Having suffered for many years with debilitating digestive issues that spiralled out of control and left her unable to digest food, with IBS, anxiety and severe panic attacks, Fire used Ayurveda, Counselling and Yoga Therapy to take back control of her body and mind, and work on the journey to recovery - and in the process worked to also heal childhood trauma and loss.

Fundamental to all work that Fire undertakes with her clients is: Care, attention and focus; respect; professionalism, individualised care: and everything that she does and offers to her clients, Fire practices in her own life.
