Holistic psychotherapy & transpersonal counselling
for seekers on a path of emotional healing,
relational intimacy, and spiritual evolution.
Welcome to A Healing Bridge.
It’s not unlikely that you’ve found us at a time when there may be an upheaval of change and transformation occurring in your life. Perhaps you are noticing this change in your body or identity, seeing it unravel in your relationships, or observing the ways that you are asking deeper questions about what is meaningful in your life, and what truly matters to you.
This psycho-spiritual change may have been catalyzed by loss or death, a challenging transition, a spiritual emergence, or coming to terms with how past trauma is impacting your life in the present. Although this process of transformation is natural and necessary, it is certainly not easy. Truly, to embark on this inner journey of discovering who you authentically are and how you wish to live your one precious life is ultimately a life-long path of courage and mystery.
In practice, this inner (and outer) work is not about “fixing,” or “improving,” yourself. Rather, it is about connecting more intimately with your body, your soul, your destiny, and your wholeness. And this kind of soul-work is slow work, requiring commitment and ongoing participation to explore your rich emotional world, the longings you are carrying, the dreams that stir within you, and the relationships that require your attention.
In a world that often feels intensely busy, stressful, and seductive with shallow ideals of quick-progress, our space of healing and discovery is oriented towards gradual change into the direction of personal awareness, embodiment, humility, and loving action.
As your companions on this soul’s journey, we will walk beside you and draw forth the wisdom and power in what's hidden and what might be difficult to see and process on your own. Our support and guidance will provide a nourishing ground for awakening and ripening, where you can grow - and deepen - into the fullness of who you naturally are.

therapists, guides & the co-creators of A Healing Bridge.

Our work (individually and together) is integrative, experiential, somatic, soul-rooted, and inspired by the old wisdom practices of shamanism & animism.
As holistic psychotherapists, transpersonal counsellors, and grief-ritualists, we offer online, in-person, and nature-based therapy (soul-work) sessions, and hold small-group ritual circles for processing grief (Grief-speak).
At the heart of our work, we serve as soul-companions for men and women who are walking a path of emotional healing and spiritual awakening, and provide support and guidance in the realms of childhood trauma transformation and attachment healing, high sensitivity and empathy, life transitions, loss & death, emotional development, conflict resolution in relationships, spiritual emergence, and plant medicine preparation & integration.
We are also practitioners of dream-work and love to write and share poetry, which is a sacred pathway of imbuing the world with more beauty. As we continue to embrace our calling in this lifetime, we hope that it will support others to live close to their deepest longings, in service to the evolution of consciousness.
"It is a beautiful thing to sit in a workshop with these two special humans. Deeply caring, soulful, present, humble and wise, they create a safe and soulful container to explore grief in gentle and life-affirming ways. Such a gift to have found Alyona and Alexandre and I look forward to joining them in further offerings."

An Interview with us
on Intimate Relationships
Embodied & Awake Podcast:
"Partnership as a Path to Enlightenment"
This is an honest and intimate collaboration that truly touched our hearts. If love and romantic relationships is a topic that interests you, we think you'll appreciate this one. In Alison Rothman's words, "[this] episode is a beautiful conversation about soul partnership, true love, the path of intimacy, the essentialness of individual inner connection, and the messy and less-than-sexy truth of enlightened partnership."
