What Is Awareness Work?

Awareness Work is a powerful style of counselling and psychotherapy created by psychotherapist Lisa Darveniza (Master of Counselling & Applied Psychotherapy). Awareness Work is a synthesis of Western counselling, Eastern philosophy and the holistic models of understanding used by earth’s indigenous cultures for thousands of years.

Lisa deeply investigated change philosophies over a twenty-five year period, immersing herself in different cultures for years at a time, selecting the ideas and techniques that led most directly to individual change and empowerment. These ideas have been tested and refined over fifteen years in private practice in Australia, with many hundreds of clients achieving the changes they were looking for. Lisa continues to work compassionately with individuals and groups online, engaging clients from all over the world.

Lisa and her team of exceptional, qualified counsellors, all trained in traditional counselling and the unique Awareness Work model, guide clients through difficulties, in a process that bridges ancient, traditional and emerging psychotherapies towards profound life change.

“Over a lifetime, upsets and difficulties naturally accumulate, until we begin the process of dismantling these difficulties through inner work. This is done through gentle enquiry with a qualified counsellor, trained in the specific methods that will help you to move beyond these problems to create a life more aligned with your values and vision.”
