Maria Wassink

Languages Spoken:

Hello, I am Maria Wassink, a registered counsellor from a private counselling practice: ‘Heart, Soul & Mind Counseling Services.’I am a level 1 ACA registered counsellor and work from a Biblical worldview. I have a Diploma in Counselling and several certificates, under which recently a certificate in Root Cause Therapy. This therapy has a bottom-up approach, meaning we don’t just talk about the issues in your life, but we search for the event where deep wounding took place. After which, a coping mechanism has developed that is blocking true life and healing. We work with somatic processing.I have extensive experience in Christian Counselling and Prayer Ministry, which also explores root issues that influence our actions in daily life. I worked as an International Aid Worker in insecure and war-torn countries and am experienced in working with culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities.Furthermore, I support clients in overcoming personal challenges and managing difficult situations. I am skilled in facilitating the exploration of root issues, educating on how to change unhelpful mindsets, raising awareness of unconscious core beliefs, and discovering essential skills that lead to personal empowerment. I endeavour to guide clients sensitively through proven strategies. My work experience is not limited to counselling. I have also worked as a Group Leader, Small Business Owner, Hospital Chaplaincy Volunteer, I have volunteered at a refugee centre, and Disability Support Worker.I am a published author of: “Healing Across Borders”, a memoir of Trauma, Travel, and Transformation. A personal story with experientially applied tools woven into the narrative, proving that we can heal from trauma. I am available for public speaking engagements and have several self-empowerment courses available.
