Despoina has been practicing witchcraft for over 20 years. With post-graduate level qualifications in Psychology*, she is vastly knowledgeable about human behaviour, cognition, mental health, and wellbeing. From a very young age, Despoina developed a deep relationship with plants and herbs through gardening and continues to work in the field of Garden Therapy and Therapeutic Horticulture. She believes that energy flow is a delicate process that can make or break the human psyche, and can be gently guided and redirected through daily ritual and the use of natural Magick. Despoina has combined the latest findings of psychological science with her own eclectic beliefs, offering services as a pagan life coach and spiritual guide for those who seek to solve problem thoughts or behaviours by more intuitive means. These incorporate the powers of nature, rituals, intention-setting, mindfulness, and extreme self-care.

Every human is the product of a lifetime of interactions and learned responses. You have been reinforced to entertain certain maladaptive thoughts and sometimes, it can truly feel as though you “just can’t help yourself”. This has sometimes been referred to as encoding or programming, your automatic response system that may seem impossible to reset or resist. We will focus on the aetiology of your issue, shed light on its early development and correct the processes which reinforce and sustain the problem behaviour. We will set up very manageable practices to “un-pair” the thoughts and subsequent behaviours that you wish to change. Like anything, change takes practice, and the beauty of this technique is reward bundling. Essentially, Despoina aims to have you find absolute joy in the practice of removing your problem behaviours.

 

Despoina offers counseling and support in the following areas:

  • Personal goal-setting & development

  • Stress management

  • Family conflict 

  • Parenting concerns

  • Relationship issues

  • Burn-out prevention and rehabilitation

  • Counseling and support for trauma, anxiety & depression

  • Drug and alcohol recovery/ accountability coaching

 

In addition, Despoina offers spiritual guidance for those seeking to incorporate Magick and ritual into their daily lives. Connection to the divine is a vital aspect for the soul; like a three-legged stool, humans require equal strength of body, mind, and spirit. Your spiritual guidance may involve: 

  • Developing an energetic connection with your personal environment and surrounds

  • Partaking in daily rituals that seek universal assistance to heal and grow

  • Dedicated self-care routines to balance your mind/ body/ spirit triad

  • Creating and utilizing products through spellwork to bolster your intentions. These may include (but are not limited to) oils, tinctures, incense, teas, bath blends.

  • Creating a magickal, self-care tool kit to help prevent relapse into old thought or behavioural patterns

 

You may choose to attempt spellwork by yourself, or alternatively, have the products made and sent out to you via post. Or, you may opt-out of this process entirely.

*Please note, Despoina is not a registered Psychologist and is not recognized by AHPRA (Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency). Instead, Despoina offers coaching services akin to a counselor and life coach, supported by a very strong research background in Psychological Science.
