She uses Neuro Linguistic Kinesiology and Counselling Kinesiology in her sessions as well as aspects of other modalities that she has learnt if required including Theta Healing, Remedial Massage, Nutrition, Reset and Touch for Health.

Kinesiology is an amazingly powerful non-invasive modality founded using eastern medicine combined with modern western principles. In kinesiology, muscle testing is used to bypass the conscious mind (that keeps feelings, thoughts, emotions and memories hidden from our awareness) and access the cellular memory of the body and the subconscious mind where we can find the core of any stress held in the body, mind or energetic field.

The core issue may be emotional, mental, physical, energetic or spiritual or a repressed trauma hidden in the subconscious mind. When we successfully find this information, we muscle test to find the specific correction and resolve it. The kinesiology techniques are gentle and non-invasive and may include tapping, massage, emotional stress release, acupressure holding points etc.

 Art Therapy

Use art therapy to gain personal insight to your inner world, revealing messages and beliefs from the subconscious mind, and then explore this to empower yourself.

Kassie Pitkin -
Relationship Therapist

Kas Pitkin is a Relationship therapist. Kas Pitkin is passionate about deepening self-awareness and strengthening relationships in order to feel satisfied in life and in relationship as well as heal in connection.

.

Kas works primarily with couples and adults to hold space and support in showing what is really happening in the therapy room be it addressing what’s stuck and scary, talking about what’s unresolved, expressing feelings, needs and desires – with the values of acceptance and connection.

Kas highly values the therapeutic relationship and a here and now focus to connect with what is reality and to create safety within relationship to create conditions for a deeper, heartfelt connection and way of relating. Kas believes that in order to heal from past hurt and disrupt unwanted coping mechanisms and negative belief systems and cycles in our relationships, we need to first feel connection and acceptance within our vulnerability with others.

In other words, we need others to see us fully in order to heal and to experience authentic, richer relationships. And, before we learn what to do, we must understand what is.
Interpersonal neurobiology tells us that brain growth occurs through experiences and relationship with others. There is no self without the other and so our identity is shaped throughout our relationships with others.

When we have experienced a secure attachment within our childhood, we are more likely to feel secure with our own emotions as well as our relationships with others, and to seek what we need and be who we essentially are. When we have experienced insecurity, be it abuse, neglect or trauma, we develop coping skills to survive which serves in keeping us safe. These coping mechanisms protect us at the time but often become barriers as we grow in managing our own emotions safely as well as connecting with others.

As a result we may engage creative adjustments such as shutting off, distrusting ourselves and others, self-judgment, addictive behaviour/s, people pleasing and developing unhealthy relationship patterns; all of which prevent us from believing in our own worth and experiencing richer relationships with others, leading to dissatisfaction, anxiety, depression, addiction and more. We may also consciously or unconsciously repeat our unmet attachment needs onto others and repeat our trauma, impacting our capacity to emotionally connect at a desired level.

Kas Pitkin focuses on creating a secure relationship with couples and individuals based upon deep respect, trust, empathy, and compassion to support clients in exploring and safely making sense of their experience in order to safely express needs and desires to stay authentic, securely connected and accepted in relationship.

Kas draws on her own lived experience with Gestalt therapy to align with her values of acceptance and connection. Kas delights in the courage taken to stay real with others and welcomes realness in therapy with the belief that satisfaction and peace comes when we learn that we are enough, together.

If you want to:
Understand and accept yourself and relationships clearly and with compassion
Replace negative communication cycles with respectful, supportive communication
Improve your relationship through connecting on a deeper level by learning to safely express your feelings, needs and desires and reflecting this back in relationship
Process unresolved hurts/trauma and find steadiness and compassion individually and in relationship.

Learn practical steps in effective communication and managing conflict in relationship
See Kas Pitkin today.

Kas Pitkin holds degree in Bachelor of Social Work, Advanced Clinical Contemporary Relational Gestalt Therapy, Diploma in Resource Therapy, Diploma in Family Constellations, and has completed courses in mental health, couples counselling, addiction, eating disorders, grief and loss, Bouverie family therapy and a range of therapeutic modalities including EFT, motivational interviewing, solution focused therapy, play therapy,. Kas has worked organisationally in relationship counselling, early intervention mental health, domestic violence, and trauma sectors and now privately as a Relationship Therapy.

The Injectables Queen

So this is me The Injectables Queen!

(Nurse Telisa) – I started Nursing later in life (25) after spending a lot of time in intensive care & hospital with a very sick little baby who had multiple surgeries (who is a healthy 10 year old miracle now – my Jadey) After spending so much time in hospital and seeing our health care heroes spend endless time caring for our girl and making sure we where ok. And the legendary Nurses of J1 letting me secretly sleep in the library because I refused to leave my girl in ICU without me under the same roof in case she needed me.

After living this I knew I had to be a part of the Nursing world, so a buckled down, worked part time and completed UNI full time in three years, while raising 3 children, and managing a family life with a work away husband who had my back and supported me the entire way!

I worked hard, got my degree and got a new graduate position working the wards, I ended up in Emergency where I absolutely flourished and grew to love, both the work and my team (my ED fam).

But I always knew that I wanted to Inject, so I set out to gain my skills and become a Cosmetic Nurse Injector, I had found my passion and true calling, helping people feel good about themselves is something I’m passionate about.

I jumped through hoops quickly, and I’m now super blessed and excited to be venturing out on my own, and I look very much forward to helping you on your journey!

Thankyou to everyone who took the time to read this very long winded intro!

And yes that’s a T-shirt with my logo just so you don’t forget who I am!
