Empowerment begins with solitude
Reconnecting professional women and work-at-home moms with their inner sacred center of inner peace, confidence, and creativity... using mindful journaling; within Christian values.
If we haven't bumped into one another at Officeworks, Australia's leading stationary supply store (I'm the mother of two young boys trying to steal a few moments in the journal isle)—Hi, I'm Bozena.
I'm a counseling psychologist/author, passionate about supporting women to re-connect with their inner peace, self-worth, and passion… using mindful journaling techniques.
For the past two decades I had the privilege of listening to women’s voices and accompanying them on parts of their journeys, mainly within the non-for-profit community sector. Since I became a mother, I transitioned into private practice.
My two-decade counselling journey led me to appreciate that so many of us shoulder the historic/cultural legacy of not being as encouraged to connect with our beings and pursue self-development outside of our caring roles, often without realizing!
The crossroads at which my clients’ journeys meet with mine are often pain points associated with a disconnection with their beings: the people pleasing coping that holds them back from communicating more assertively, the feeling run down from a lack of self-care, or feeling lost, anxious, invisible, depressed, abused…
How does one cope when they are not centered in their being?
This is something that I’ve personally experienced in my early 20s, when a combination of family stresses and a personal tragedy took a tremendous blow to my identity and self-worth.
My rock bottom was my life’s turning point and a start of a long journey towards reclaiming personal power as a woman. This journey continues to unfold for me, ever more joyously, passionately, and deeply, till this day!
The inner self love journey means the learning to re-connect with our being, and venturing beyond familiar cultural, social, even familial conditioning (and beyond blame), to something endless and undiscovered, a woman’s sacred inner self…
The journey makes use of mindful techniques to notice and transform your mindset, emotional growth, interpersonal interactions, and your mindfulness practice/spirituality.
It is my hope that my every client experiences practical strategies for connecting with their being; and appreciates that through noticing and connecting with their inner sacred self, discovering their inner beauty and the many dimensions of themselves, they are not only empowering themselves but also changing the world!
