Virginnia is a qualified counsellor, end of life doula, meditation leader and Therapeutic Touch® practitioner who blends these beautiful modalities to help people on their journey to self-actualisation. Virginnia supports individuals and families who are facing death, life-limiting experiences, divorce or any type of grief and loss in a way that is holistic and personal. While we all know that unexpected events are part of life’s journey, it is still incredibly confronting and challenging when it happens to us. Taking a collaborative approach, Virginnia loves helping people explore how to live life fully within whatever new life events are presented. Bridging the gap between medical professionals and the individual themselves, Virginnia provides thoughtful care and guidance for spiritual, physical and mental wellbeing. With a strong resonance to the Celtic phrase of “Anam Cara”, Virginnia applies this concept of being a "soul friend" in all of the work that she does. A lifelong learner and lover of connecting with others, Virginnia is a member and president of the Therapeutic Touch® Association of Australasia and has been a member of the Australian Counselling Association since 2006. Passionate about education and sharing her wisdom, Virginnia offers a range of courses for people who are looking to support themselves or others during life’s transitions. These include Therapeutic Touch® Accredited Training, Beginners Meditation Workshop, 6 Week Meditation Course, Therapeutic Touch® Mentoring and Death Doula Mentoring. Virginnia runs a range of women’s circles and retreats as well as her one-on-one offerings to help her clients navigate the path together and discover the vibrancy in life. Virginnia feels humbled and blessed as your companion to travel with you on this journey. Read more

A discovery call will provide an opportunity to ask questions and gain an understanding about your current challenges, goals and pain points. This is a key opportunity for us to start building a relationship and understand how I may be able to assist you. You can also learn more about my expertise and knowledge, the success I have had in helping others with similar issues, and consider whether my offerings will be able to meet your needs.

Meditation can minimise stress and disharmony many feel when confronted by life-limiting illness, personal changes or death. Quietening the fear of death or even the fear of change can be an empowering approach when confronted by personal uncertainty. Meditation allows for the individual to become open, to being present and vital in their life right now. Private or group meditation offers a chance for individuals to connect with themselves and to release the resistance of whatever they are facing. By taking ownership of the living process, most people find peace between their expectations and the reality of their impending mortality. Read more
