HI! I AM KELLY SANTIAGO
I am an experienced Integrative Counsellor and Therapist working with adults and Seniors. My therapeutic models are primarily Person-Centered, Narrative, and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). I also employ other techniques such as Clinical Hypnotherapy, Past Life Regression, Brainspotting, Sophrology, and Energy Healing/Cleansing.
I worked intensively in a Palliative care centre helping clients with cancer transitioning to the afterlife or rediscovering their passion and reasons to live fully. I have recently helped adults to overcome their life transition, grief, phobias, weight loss, smoke cessation, and anxiety. I am also experienced in trauma, depression, dysfunctional thoughts and behaviour. In regression therapy. I have been working with clients that feel stuck in life and cannot find the purpose to continue with the challenges that life brings. I was able to lead them to a past life where they found their passion again, got insights and came out of trance with a new perspective. Their motivation, self-esteem, and self-love returned to their daily lives. No matter what challenges life brings to us we do have the ability to understand it, solve it, and transform our existence, and that's what I am here for! to help you achieve your goals.
I offer clients space and presence that is warm, validating, respectful, caring, and supportive of healing. My intention as a therapist is to support clients to explore and move beyond difficult or limiting experiences and provide an opportunity for them to reconnect with their most authentic self.
I have many years of training and experience in energy healing and I believe in working energetically first to clear and harmonize the client's energy field is essential and naturally, the transformation takes place. My clients notice the change in the first session as they become aware of their body, mind and spirit as a whole. Discovering who they really are and tapping to their inner resources than life takes a different path.
I believe that all mental health professional needs to work together to help clients to overcome their challenges and for that, I also partner with counsellors, clinical psychologists, acupuncturists, homeopathic doctors and energy healers to integrate the learning and the insights a client experienced in the session to boost client's treatment with their prefered therapists.
