Virginia Woods has over 35 years experience in body-oriented psychotherapy, dance-movement therapy, and is a registered psychologist. She is a somatic psychotherapist having completed the professional training in Hakomi, and Module 1 of Sensorimotor Psychotherapy..

Virginia approaches counselling from an individual perspective, drawing on her diverse background and skills providing personally relevant and meaningful outcomes for each person. She works from the understanding of the mind-body- spirit connection, where changes in one influence changes in the other, and the body has the power to influence how we feel and present ourselves in the world.

Virginia has developed expertise in body image and trauma management through body oriented psychotherapy based in latest neuroscience studies.
She has had an ongoing practice of meditation and spiritual philosophy which contributes to her counselling style and methods.

She has also completed a Masters by Supervision in expressive arts therapy which has extended her skills in psychotherapy. Counselling experience and skills are complimented by knowledge of Australian Bush Flower Essences.

Specifically Virginia’s strengths lie in counselling for:

  • Eating disorders
