Shushann Movsessian MAppSci (Social Ecology), Diploma in Process-Oriented Psychology.
Shushann has 25 years experience as a mature counsellor and psychotherapist, and is also a soul-life coach, workshop and retreat leader and the co-founder of The Soulful Woman Facebook page. She is the author of the national bestselling book, Puberty Girl (2004, Allen and Unwin).
As a holistic psychotherapist Shushann draws on a breadth of knowledge about the human psyche, developing soul consciousness and embracing the sacred feminine in the evolution of our consciousness. She draws on Western psychological practices and Eastern approaches to healing and wellbeing.
Shushann has embarked on a mystic’s journey in healing and empowerment of the sacred feminine within her own life, which has led her to spend time with the Shipibo shamans in Peru as well as healers and elders in Northern Bali. Her work has included facilitating workshops for fathers and daughters, rites of passage puberty weekends for mothers and daughters, and, more recently, spiritual retreats and Soul Spa workshops for women in Bali and Australia. Shushann’s work is to assist people to put into practice behaviours that help reduce emotional pain, calm their nervous system and open up channels for healing. Her work specifically supports people in connecting with the sacred in their lives and in drawing on the guiding authority and wisdom of their higher selves. Her approach focuses on supporting clients to feel more empowered and emotionally stable, to experience greater clarity and resilience, wellness and vitality. This inevitably has a positive flow-on effect in our relationships and indeed on the greater world around us.
