    do you need/want SUPPORT? I can hold SPACE.

    do you need/want SUPPORT? I can hold SPACE.

    Do you need and/or want someone to listen to and hold space for you as you grieve/feel and reconnect with your body and emotions?  Are you tired of seeing therapists who don't ACTUALLY listen or support you?  Do you want to remember how to feel, how to REALLY exist in your body?  Do you need to grieve generations of pain and sorrow?  I can be that person for you (if it feels right).  
    I'm opening myself up to seeing people one-on-one in a relational-healing context.  I'm not a therapist/counsellor but I do have a gift for holding space and going deep with people.  I will not give advice, I will not try to fix you; I will support you as best as I can, in a way that actually FEELS supportive to YOU.
    Sliding scale rates; no one will be turned away who is too poor.

Thank God for this Podcast.

After listening for the first time, I fell in love with this podcast today. I felt connected, understood and at peace listening to the conversation between James Sebastiano Jnr and Kye Plant. I love that Kye has made this podcast and is encouraging conversations around topics that sometimes feel too weird to have with our family and friends.

I love this podcast

Really nuanced and interesting. The host seems like a very kind person and the guests are great too

HOARDAX ,

This is one of the best mental health podcasts available

I’ve honestly gotten a lot out of this podcast myself and I am certain it helps a lot of other people. The guests are great and the range of topics covered mean there is something for everybody.

You might start listening for something that relates to your own “weirdness” but each episode is so good, it actually becomes irrelevant what the focus is. I have often found inspiration and things to relate to in episodes about stuff I don’t even deal with personally.

Lastly, Kye is amazing. It takes real courage to be so open and honest when helming a show like this and it is to be commended. And the theme song is awesome. Highly recommended.
