Services and readings
Year Ahead Reading
Astrologers think about time as a wheel. We see the cyclical nature of life in the movement of the Moon, Planets and Stars. Our understanding of life’s phases is based on scientific evidence from astronomy and astro-physics.
As the planets orbit the Sun, they connect with the Earth’s path from time to time. Just as the Moon’s orbit of the Earth affects the ocean tides and fertility cycles of animals and plants, we are all subject to the transiting energies of orbiting planets. This is the theory behind the Year Ahead reading.
There are three elements to this service. First, you will receive a personalised Events Calendar, which describes the experiences that are likely to occur at particular periods
Key dates are provided with a detailed explanation that helps you to plan ahead with accuracy and assurance.
Second, you will receive a Lunar Cycle Report that can be used to track when you are in a growth or waxing phase, and when you are in a consolidation or waning phase.
This is a useful adjunct for planning investments, making life changes, or deciding when to expand and when to retire.
Third, you will be invited to a one hour consultation with Tessa to ask questions and clarify information. An audio recording of the consultation will be forwarded to you within 24 hours.
Choose this service to understand the lessons and achievements waiting for you and to know how to travel your life path with success.
Enjoy the success of knowing.
Astrology counselling gives you support and guidance with the major pressures in your life as seen through the lens of Astrology. This framework allows you to see your current situation as a stage in a cycle of events that have a purpose and a lesson for you.
Taking a step back from yourself opens up the possibility for a new perspective, which is helpful when you are healing from trauma or loss. Tessa is trained in psychological techniques such as Psychosynthesis, Shadow Work, and Acceptance Commitment Therapy. These approaches help to tease out solutions within complex problems. The methods are nurturing and can be used in your own home or office after learning them in the counselling session.
All clients are encouraged to learn the practice of self-compassion. This is an effective and simple way to get relief from difficult feelings using guided meditation and the breath.
Astrology Counselling focuses on issues that are important to you right now. This service takes you to a deeper level of understanding and insight as you journey through the healing process.
Deepen your experience with life. Use Astrology as a compass to find more happiness, joy and meaning in your life.
Spiritual Self Care
Do you want to get in touch with your spiritual self?
With over 25 years’ experience as a meditator Tessa knows the benefits of spending time each day with her spiritual self.
Tessa can support you to make space in your life for spiritual self-care.
We live in a culture that puts material values above all else. Even the focus on physical and mental health is about improving our capacity to be productive in the workforce or as carers. We are constantly being asked to conform or to contribute in some way.
There is little or no guidance to develop and maintain our spiritual health. If you or your family do not go to a church, your life may have lacked information about spiritual self-care.
These sessions will help you to recognise the spiritual part of your life and to care for this important aspect of your being.
What is a spiritual self?
At the core of each person is a timeless essence that awakens when you stop doing and simply be aware. This experience of being in the moment comes from your spiritual self.
Spending time in this zone of concentrated awareness gives the other parts of your being a rest. It also connects you to a universal energy that will support your life.
Your spiritual self is a precious resource of deep joy, safety, compassion, and non-judgement.
Introduce yourself to your spiritual self and learn how to care for it today.

There are things that we don’t want to happen
but have to accept
Things we don’t want to know
but have to learn
And people we can’t live without
but have to let go.
Suzanne Maher 2006
The pain of losing someone or something is one of life’s hardest lessons. Sadness is everywhere, like a dark cloud covering the sun, preventing you from enjoying life. You yearn for the person or situation to return, yet you know this is impossible.
Grief Counselling can help
The first few weeks, months, and years after loss can be especially tough. You might be fearful of the future without your loved one/relationship/job. You may not be ready to accept the changes in your life and the challenges to your identity that the loss has caused.
It is important to receive support and love to help you make meaning of this event and to reshape your life.
Hope and renewal
Counselling can help you to tap into a little burst of creativity that occurs after the processes of loss and grief are completed.
In just one session, Tessa can help you to create a safe space in which to spend time with yourself in relation to your loved one again. A series of sessions will help to consolidate this experience and give you hope and resilience in the years to come.
One of Tessa’s skills is in helping you to find relief and comfort.
“You’re not there to save them. You’re there to be an open space in which they can do whatever they need without colouring to the least degree their unfolding.”
