Hello Beautiful You!

can you (or your child) relate to any of the following?

I'm scared

I feel threatened and/or I’m saddened by the loss of something that is of personal value to me. I don’t know what to do to feel safe and happy again. I need help!

I'm worried!

I’m worried about some aspect of my life (e.g. work, health, relationships, family situation, traumatic event, etc.). This constant worry makes me feel stressed and anxious.

I feel stuck!

Deep down, I know that something needs to change. But I don’t quite know WHAT or HOW.  Even though I want to better myself or my situation, I feel stuck. If only I had some guidance!

If you can relate to even 1 of the above, chances are you will greatly benefit from the playful therapeutic approach at SageAffect!

a message from the founder

Laurinda JonesTrauma Informed Creative Play Therapist

Skilled at creating a calm, protective space where parents/caregivers and their children are supported through play and creative expression to consult the intuitive wisdom of their inner sage, so they can heal the scattered aspects of self and discover their soul’s unique worth. 

Hi, I’m Laurinda, a trauma-informed creative play therapist and founder of SageAffect.  I am honoured to have you visit here with me today!

If you are anything like me, you will agree that life does not always have to be so serious. There is enough doom and gloom in the world … therapy does not have to be the same!

As someone who experienced childhood trauma myself, I have always tried to escape my dark shadows by focusing on the beautiful and joyful aspects of life.

That is why I now love using creative play in my therapeutic work with women, families and children so they too can enjoy the beauty of life (even though some shadows may be lurking nearby).

It will be my pleasure to work with you and your child using a combination of different holistic therapeutic techniques, including psychotherapy and hypnotherapy, to bring healing to the Whole You:

BodyMind, and Spirit.

There’s simply no reason to wait. You (or your child) have the ability to access the intuitive wisdom of your inner healer, you just need a little guidance in a safe environment to succeed.
