About Your Counsellor
Lezli Wrixon, BEd, MACP, RCC, CPT
As both a parent and a teacher, I learned that playing, art and creative activities were the most effective and meaningful ways to engage others in exploring their intrinsic potential for success. When I made the decision to become a counsellor, I was drawn immediately to Sandplay, Art, and Play Therapy because of the potential they have for increasing problem solving skills, self regulation, resilience, self esteem and deep healing. Not being expected to constantly speak directly about what is most difficult in your world, but still being able to move towards positive change, can be very freeing.
I have always believed in our ability to recover from even the deepest emotional trauma, given the right circumstances A calm space, someone who wholly accepts us for who we are without judgement, and an opportunity to recognize, explore and build upon our own strengths can create a wonderful catalyst for positive change. Counselling is about growing your strengths and being empowered to step beyond those events or challenges in your life that have left you feeling vulnerable or wounded.
