Alyona Kobevka is a holistic psychotherapist, facilitator, emergent ceremonialist, and poet. Living on the fringes of the mainstream, she bridges the worlds of process-oriented and transpersonal psychology, with earth-based spirituality and animist perspectives, offering an integrative framework for human development, whilst sensitively attuning to the challenges and longings that emerge within each person that she works with. Her approach to psychospiritual healing and maturation is body-oriented, relationally-centred, intuitive, and rooted in the wisdom of nature.
With over a decade of formal study and training, as well as her lived experiences of childhood abuse and trauma, addiction, and initiation by the mysteries of life, she supports others with loving presence and grounded guidance, to become intimate with the fullness of who they are, by learning to compassionately welcome home the abandoned aspects of themselves, and slowly revive their relationship with their body, emotions, intuition, and imagination. She works predominantly with women and sensitive individuals walking a path of healing and awakening, who yearn to reclaim their personal power that was lost due to trauma, reconnect with their body as a home of intelligence, and shed their outworn identities and conditioning, so that they may live with an authenticity in their everyday lives.
Through A Healing Bridge Alyona works closely with her husband, Alexandre to co-create offerings that, honour grief and the sacred in life, provide holistic, earth-rooted maps for transformation, and initiate new possibilities for wholeness through re-connection to the emotional, imaginal, and eco-spiritual dimensions of existence. In kinship with her Slavic ancestors and her beloved spirit helpers in the unseen worlds, Alyona is dedicated to walking a path that is true to her heart, and supporting others to remember, and live, who they truly are. She currently lives on Wurundjeri country in Melbourne, Australia.

I am actively engaged in ongoing professional development, including monthly supervision, mentoring, and integrative trainings, which support me in my continuous evolution as a holistic practitioner. I am also committed to ongoing personal inner-work and self-inquiry, and view this as imperative for being able to guide others with integrity and care.
