“lisa’s work is sophisticated and deep, it supports me to move through deep and old stuff quickly and efficiently leaving me feeling clear, courageous and connected to myself and those around me. I’m deeply honored to work with lisa’s attuned skills and techniques.”


“Lisa has enabled me to get myself stable and on a clear track to living a very fruitful, connected and aware life.I had been suffering from depression and anxiety for many many years and got to a point where I was completely wiped, stuck and just couldn’t go on the way I was and needed help. I was done. I had resigned myself to the fact that I would just be that way forever and that I was really at the bottom with no hope. I am now so thrilled and relieved to say I am no longer trapped under the heavy blanket of depression and desperate fear.
Lisa is incredibly gifted and supportive and through our conversations and the tools she has shown me I am coping and flourishing on a daily basis. When the onset of old habits and feelings appear I am able to move through them quickly and then continue on with the life I wish to lead. I am no longer fearful of the day to day and am able to cope with many situations that would have thrown me over the edge in the past. Her approach is nurturing, deeply insightful and works from a place of truthfulness and knowledge to shift perspective so you can become more solid in your self.
I am incredibly grateful to lisa as I know I would still be stuck if I hadn’t met her. I encourage anyone to seek her help and knowledge if they are feeling lost and vulnerable in their life.’ “


“I absolutely love the person Lisa is and the way she operates. She was there for me and helped me through some of the most challenging times of my life. When I needed someone with conviction, deep clarity and a bold desire to help me bust down some longheld personal barriers, Lisa was with me every step of the way. I cannot thank her enough! You will never regret spending time with this amazing lady.”


“Lisa has been a tremendous help to me towards understanding myself, and others. I’ve seen a difference in my life, and an easier, more confident way to exist and trust myself. Her gentle and caring nature is full of respect and peace, and she has the gift of being able to share this.”


“Awareness work has transformed my life. Before working with Lisa I had been trying to ‘fix’ myself for years, through reading ‘self-help’ books, meditating, and various forms of natural therapy. While all of these things were beneficial, I was finding that while I would often feel better for a little while, the same blocks and patterns would come up again and again leave me feeling powerless to be able to move my life in the direction I desired.
Since beginning work with Lisa last year, I have been able to shift some really deep core beliefs and create lasting changes in my life. This has had a flow on effect into all areas of my life and has dramatically improved my relationships, my health, my career and my finances, but most importantly my inner sense of self worth and clarity about who I am and my path forward. The crippling anxiety and lack of self confidence I used to feel on a daily basis only surfaces occasionally and I now have the tools to move through these feelings quickly when they do arise. I experience so much more joy on a daily basis, and feel like I am finally free to move torwards my potential and create a life that feels true to me. I am eternally grateful for Lisa and the work she does in the world.”


“Working with Lisa has been a mind blown game changer for me. She has opened my eyes to simplicity and realness; a beyond effective and easeful way of being. I was someone who thought I was doing the ‘work’. I hadn’t mastered it by any means but I felt I was doing ok in it; willing to look at my confronts and dive in. But I was in a spin of processing and had taken on many New Age philosophies that were controlling me and keeping me contained. Lisa saw me immediately and her work completely turned everything on its head in the most freeing and expansive way. I had worked with another psychotherapist for two years prior to coming to Lisa, and what she did for me across two sessions was almost more powerful than those two years had been, as they had kept me in a behaviour of processing that wasn’t freeing me. Lisa’s awareness and way of working is the way forward. The space she holds cuts through the bullshit and I find myself in awe everytime. Lisa has challenged me and kept me safe, simultaneously, which I am beyond grateful for and now find myself craving as it brings more and more growth, each time. I can’t thank Lisa enough for her wisdom, care, knowing and profound awareness. Her willingness to do her work, so we can do our work, is second to none! And because of that, I am breathing, fully, again.”


“I have been seeing Lisa for two years. The quiet power in Lisa’s work happens without me realising at the time. I look back and see how much I have transformed – in my levels of daily contentment, in my relationships, in the way I now embrace facing challenges as doorways to further growth. I have softened and let the world see more of me, I have settled into a more accepting and peaceful place with myself and others. Lisa has a way of knowing just where to place attention in order to reveal the next stage of my growth towards more power and love. The process is spacious and co-driven. It has at times been confronting and challenging. One of the greatest things about this work is that I have the tools at my fingertips and in my awareness in any situation I face, to continue practising and growing and to facilitate transformation. I highly recommend this work to anyone wanting to begin deep and wonderful changes in their life.”


“Lisa is an exceptional person and an exceptional therapist. She is a warm and clear person, with a steadfast wisdom that has seen me through great challenges. Seeing Lisa has enabled me to come through difficulties completely intact and with greater awareness, understanding, immense happiness, freedom and my connection to people enhanced. This is what makes her unique, and a very special practitioner. Lisa is dedicated to true and ultimate healing. Her work has also allowed me to see the nature of difficulties very clearly, allowing me to be free and giving my best in every part of life. Seeing Lisa has shaped my personal and professional life immensely. It has been one of the greatest blessing working with her, and I highly highly recommend her to you.”


“Making the decision to see Lisa has been LIFE CHANGING for me…I feel like I have taken one step in my whole life, trying many different healing modalities…and a marathon in just a few sessions with Lisa. It’s hard to put into words but this work feels like THE TRUTH!”


“I left sessions with Lisa feeling an increase in both freedom and personal power. Her Awareness Work provided a way for me to see and experience that my true self was separate from my problems. This made it easier to solve my issues and to have more time and energy to focus on creating an impassioned life. My ability to enjoy people, work and be in the world is greatly enhanced.”


“Working with Lisa has been one of the most eye opening experiences of my life. Not only did I learn to look at myself from a whole other perspective, but also the world around me and how I am in it. To sum up all the learning and exploration she has guided me through so far in one word I would say ‘Awareness’.
Lisa is kind, considerate, firm and fair. She is encouraging, supportive and above all, loving and invested. Readily willing and ultimately committed to helping you be the best you can and giving you the day-to-day tools to do so. A rare and at times confronting experience, still one I consider to be the most memorable and formative of my adult life.”


“I have been working with Lisa for over 10 years and she has been fantastic in helping me shape my life. Lisa’s ability to see my potential helps me to be stable and successful. She gives me hope and helps me to centre myself.”


“Lisa Darveniza is a very rare breed of human being. She is tireless in her vision for freedom for people. She is unrivalled in her incredibly sharp vision of freedom and love, and her vision is sharper still on everything that freedom is not. In a world of pseudo care and saturation of ‘healing’ modalities, Lisa’s work is powerful, safe and with immediate results. Like truth, her work is simple. It is founded on the very rare and yet ultra powerful phenomenon of having someone actually listen to you. I could not recommend her highly enough. Returning a person to their rightful state of clarity and certainty, her work is a true breath of fresh air and very much needed in these times. Lisa is a dear friend to me, but she is also a mentor, and I continue to learn from her and from her clear view. I would recommend anyone I know to spend some valuable time with Lisa Darveniza.”


“Lisa is an exceptional and singular therapist. After only two sessions things have started to shift. In our first session I am struck by the stillness that Lisa maintains. It feels steady and grounded. I find myself enveloped within a gaze that is clear and quiet – I find the ramblings of my exhausted-needy state begin to settle – I find myself willing to listen into a place of personal clarity that has eluded me for too long. Lisa ‘s receptivity and strength is gently provocative. After our second session I am seeking integrity. I feel prompted to follow up with the kind of action that validates my subjective distress, just as it requires me to seek out those whispers of possibility that lead me out of it.”


“I have been working with Lisa through Awareness Work and the first thing I can say is trust. It can be difficult to open up truths to yourself, let alone in front of someone else. Lisa I can genuinely say, is one person who has such experience, depth, knowledge and heart, that it rekindles something inside… a hope, a dream, a whisper… A beginning of something that you may have thought ended a long time ago…

Through Awareness work I have found it is never too late to live your life, never too late to love again and never too late to dream. Lisa supported me through some hard times where I found a strength in myself I thought I had lost.

What I also feel with Lisa, is that she supports you to reach your full potential and effectiveness. This could mean you only need one session to start seeing changes. Lisa is in the business of empowering people. If you are ready to change things, I would highly recommend seeing Lisa.”


“I found the gradual process of going down into the deepest part of myself both challenging and scary. Lisa was the ultimate guide. She helped me overcome lifelong traumas that had been impacting my relationships for decades. The big breakthrough came on the last session and it is a moment I will cherish forever. It’s the moment I let go of old stories and ways of being. I am free now and able to live and love with an open soft heart again.”


“Lisa has helped me discover and overcome very important issues to me that I wouldn’t have seen without her sessions. Sometimes all I had to say were a couple of words and she knew exactly what was going on. Her intuition, kind heart and nurturing energy made it easy for me to share with her anything I needed to say. I’m extremely grateful for Lisa’s guidance and I encourage anyone to ask for her help if need be. Thank you Lisa!”


“Words alone cannot express the intense gratitude I feel for Lisa and the profound shifts that have occurred in my life since I began working with her.

Over 20 years of conventional ‘therapy’ with psychologists, social workers and counselors haven’t initiated the unraveling of my issues the way Lisa’s work has in 8 months.

I feel that I am finally sorting through and healing issues that have been with me my entire life.

These shifts are saving my marriage, improving my relationships with my boys, my former husband and his wife, family, friends, workmates and strangers.

Improving my ability to see and fulfill my life purpose. Literally improving my financial situation and most importantly for the first time in my life giving me hope for my future and the sense that I am loved, loveable and not broken irreparably.

Awareness work is real and happens on a deep level. Providing insights and profound change.

With Lisa always striving to uncover your true, pure, beautiful nature you will at times be challenged by her strong guidance and unyielding honesty. But it’s worth accepting the challenge and trusting that Lisa will lovingly guide you to a better place. Really. Nothing has ever helped me before.

Thank you and bless you Lisa from the depths of my soul.”


“I have found Lisa’s work to be deeply healing and transformative. She enables a safe space for radical and lasting change to occur. In her workshops I have been able to find freedom and release around issues that have troubled me for much of my life.”


“Lisa holds a firm but loving space and is highly intuitive. She has helped me see and feel through some very deep hidden childhood traumas, guiding me gently when I need it, and offering firm truth when I can’t see through my pain. I love that i never once felt like I was being studied or analysed, or that there was something to fix. This made me feel a safety that i hadn’t felt before and it took a few sessions to really open and get to the root of things. My partner and I both do sessions with Lisa and our relationship has reached a totally new level of communication and awareness.
My time with Lisa has been invaluable and I’ll recommend her for a very very long time. I now see that I didn’t have to do it alone. I feel comfort knowing Awareness work exists.”


“Working with Lisa has finally meant that I feel calm, in my soul. Im not wrestling everyday with rage, hurt, anxiety and fear like I have most of my life. I feel peace, hope and incredible pride in what Ive achieved so far and how far I can grow in my future.
Thank you so much.”


“The 6 Month Course was everything I needed to take my personal and professional life as a counsellor, to the next level. The holistic approach and concepts handed to me are things I can use in every area of my life. Something I loved about the course, that other courses lack, is the embodied implementation and integration of the concepts and training. This really locked it all in for me, instead of just understanding it from my head I got to put concepts into action every week and therefore take them out into all areas of my life. Lisa never gives you anything you can’t handle but pushes you to your edge, which I found to be really helpful. Being in a space with other participants was very refreshing as I found that although each one of us are at different levels and have different lives, we all relate to each other’s personal difficulties and wins. This created a deep sense of belonging and connection that can be hard to come by. Overall, I would recommend anyone to this course who is ready to expand all areas of their life, inner and outer, and make lasting change and empowerment.”


“The 6 Month Course has been so freeing for me. I have gained and let go within the same breath – obviously that’s what growth is, we always gain something better every time we let go of what we don’t need, but the feeling in this course is immediate in that respect. The way Lisa has run the 6 months is nothing short of brilliant. The concepts delivered were concepts that I was so hungry for, but had never heard them in this way and now feel so grateful to be able to continually practice and speak into them. The format and the timing of how things were shared were incredible. Lisa is a true mastermind behind understanding what the human psyche needs to touch into real feeling, embracing all that is there so that it can truly resolve and free up allowing you to come home to the stabilised Self. I don’t know any other modality or course structure that could achieve this. Awareness Work and the depth of a group working as one machine has enabled something I’ve never felt before. It’s confronting, challenging, exciting, terrifying, connecting, awe inspiring, simple, pure, exposing and beyond expansive. I am creating more than I ever have, stepping into purpose with an ease I’ve never accessed before. There is more time, more love, more space. My Self is completely present and I actually like who I am for the first time in my life. It’s truly the best thing you can say yes to.”


“Deciding to join Lisa and commit to the 6 Month Course has been a life changing experience for me.

It feels like I can see clearly again. Although my outer world is full of challenges, my inner perspective has changed dramatically. Being held in such a safe and loving container, and having the consistency of weekly meetings has given me the opportunity to dive deep into myself and recognise where I have been stuck, not taking responsibility for my life. My life feels so much more aligned, the challenges feel like lessons of growth and initiations. I am so grateful to have been given this opportunity for receiving knowledge and tools for life!

I would highly recommend this course for anyone looking for real and lasting change in their life.”


“This work has been everything to me. It’s has completely changed my life. I was unhappy in my life and this dissatisfaction with myself often manifested in the negative way I treated myself and others around me. Doing this course has given me the experiences and tools to learn what it means to be truly accountable for oneself and for others. This work has a no-nonsense, practical and achievable approach that creates permanent change. I’ve tried many different ways and read many different texts on self-development and spirituality in an effort to resolve the unhappiness in my life. Some of them worked temporarily, some did not work at all. THIS IS THE ONLY WORK THAT HAS PERMANENTLY SHIFTED MY AWARENESS. I’ve learned to build a strong foundation of living in a compassionate yet strong and authentic way that will guide and inform my journey through the rest of my life. This course has not magically made my inner struggles disappear. I still struggle. But I now know who and what I’m struggling for, and that is everything to me.

Having a group of like-minded individuals around me that not only support me but also provide an opportunity for me to support them is both a privilege and a gift. Being there for others whole having others be there for me, to witness others struggles and to be witnessed in my own struggles is most certainly a daunting, nerve-wracking experience. But it has taught me to run into struggle and not away from it. When we do this, beautiful things happen. Life changes here.”


“When I set the intentions and goals at the start of the course, trying to understand what I wanted to achieve, I would have never imagined that in six months my life would have changed forever. This course offered me the possibility of working with my shadows in a supported environment with the help of Lisa, Will and the rest of the participants, who provided a safe space to do so. Shadow work is not easy work, but it arrived in a decisive moment in my life, when I could not ignore anymore what my true Self was screaming, hidden underneath layers and layers of dysfunction, trauma, codependence and self doubt. Being held in such a safe therapeutic environment, allowed me to look into my own dysfunctions and shadows in order to dismantle poisonous belief systems through compassion and loving kindness. Dismantling such systems and working with your own shadow can feel very destabilising, but I had to follow my intuitions to understand that what is painful sometimes is necessary to create anew. Although I am still integrating what I’ve learned and I am in a crucial stage of transformation, exiting my cocoon and entering what I feel it is a third life, I could have never got here without this course. This incredible process is allowing me to let go of self doubt and codependence, making space for something new, scary and beautiful: the true power of the Self, and the possibility to heal not just for my own well being but with the intention of bringing into the world my talents and services.”


“I have just completed the 6 month stabilising in the Self course.  I almost didn’t commit to the course as I thought I didn’t need to do it, oh boy was I wrong. I have stepped into a whole new way of being vulnerable, of expressing how I feel, of articulating what is on my mind or what wisdom needs to be shared in the moment or to myself.

I have deeply worked through layers that were massive blocks and outside my awareness that have now allowed me to return to the deep sensitive nature that is natural to me, the deep ability to feel and hold space for others.

I have found great strength, courage and power in facing challenges of adversity. This course has provided me with the essential steps and tools to move into a deeper way of being, of service to others and Self. This 6 month course has been phenomenal, it is fully embodied and extremely supportive and stable. Lisa and Will are amazing facilitators and I wouldn’t be where I am today without their loving and kind support.

I highly recommend this Course to anyone who was seeking permanent change and growth that they can carry forward in their life.”


“Before commencing in the 6-month ‘Stabilising in the Self’ course I was feeling incredibly lost and unsteady. It’s safe to say that I was feeling somewhat numb and unhappy within my what would seem very happy life. I was seeking direction, guidance and support to help me navigate the difficult, heavy, and on some days very dark feelings that I was experiencing. Having always held a positive and optimistic outlook on life it was disturbing to me that I was having such feelings of helplessness, without any clear direction of how to shift this.

Having now completed the 6 month ‘Stabilising in the Self’ course, my life has changed beyond what I had expected. The skills and concepts that I have learnt have not only helped me feel completely stable within myself, but have strengthened my Self-love, Self-confidence, and Self-knowing to a place I never thought I’d get to.

The 6 month ‘Stabilising in the Self’ course has quite literally saved my life. What I have learnt will remain in my practice forever as I continue to navigate life. I’ve never believed that we as humans should navigate life alone. This course has provided the learnings and guidance that every single human should have access to. I can’t thank Lisa and Will enough for facilitating such a deep and transformative program. I am forever grateful.”


“This course is like a road map to life, it has guided me back home to myself in a way that words cannot describe. I have reconnected to my essence, the essence of others and the essence of life in such a profound way.
Lisa and Will are the most skilled facilitators. Honestly masters.
They hold a space that is grounded, truthful and full of love. Every little detail rings true, Thought about and executed with the finest precision.
Honestly it’s the most life changing course.
A course that connects you to life’s deepest truths, which lie within us all.
It is an initiation, a journey, a mountain, and Honestly, In these times, this course has provided an anchor and direction for me in ways that I cannot describe.
Each week- A portal of awareness, friendship, healing, growth, connection, truth and purpose were present.
I am so deeply grateful for this experience. And I will absolutely be sure to join in another 6month course.”


“My experience in this course has been one that I will forever hold close to my heart. I will never be the same again. Steadily, Lisa (and Will!) have held us in a safe and sacred space for the past 6 months.

Lisa has a high level of integrity and her commitment to seeing and revealing the best in everyone is a driving force of this work. Lisa’s wisdom and work is of a mastery level and it has been an honour to learn from such a courageous, intelligent and graceful guide. Will, assisting Lisa, brought consistent support and unique insight to my journey that allowed me to see what I needed to see at each turn.

I have felt myself stretch and change and I now know myself at a much deeper level now.

I have gained a trust in my own wisdom, in knowing how to navigate my life from a place of truth, a place of understanding and steadiness.

During the course I moved a huge amount of dysfunctional patterning that has been holding me back for many years, maybe my whole life. I have learned to see the relationships in my world and my relationship to all of life from a much greater perspective, depth and understanding. I have developed the ability to be guided from within whilst also learning from and trusting the lessons that life brings my way.

I am now a more whole version of myself who can accept and face challenges with more ease and acceptance. I can speak my truth, navigate conflict with more resilience and less reactivity. I am a better person because of this course. Forever grateful”


“Throughout the course I have always felt challenged beyond my comfort zone. I think the biggest part of it, was having the honest and aware support of Lisa and Will who I felt I could genuinely bring difficulties to and they will provide a way of navigating it and seeing it with the eyes of an outside observer. This constant space of accountability was always pushing me to see my own challenging patterns for what they are and to have the hope that there is a space where it can be overcome and turned into strengths. Holding this higher awareness is probably the greatest aspect of the course, a place that believes in the goodness of human nature and our ability to overcome our inner obstacles as well as be a good force for others. I will use what I gained from the course and sharing with others their honesty and challenges to keep practicing and pursuing my journey and sense of purpose in the world. “


“My experience with the Awareness work 6 month course stabilising in the self has been beneficial in many ways. It has helped me with understand myself and identify my feelings much better. The course allowed me to explore these difficulties both intellectually and emotionally in a safe container where I could learn to express what I was experiencing. The concepts that we worked with are very powerful and are explored with great depth, allowing for many breakthroughs in understanding the difficulties of individuals and humanity. I found that the concepts flow together very well and each concept builds upon the last throughout the course creating a very powerful momentum. All of this and the chance to learn and hold space for others makes this course one of the most rewarding things that I have done.”


Awareness Work has helped me to know my true Self. The title is perfect because I do feel Stabilised in the Self. I feel like the trunk of a sturdy old tree. I have always known, felt  an inner strength, always seen my light shining although now the difference is that I embody this light. This knowing has gone from my head into my body & heart. Following the guidance of the Self was a key concept. Being able to check in with Self, and believe, trust her answers creates a stability I have found and continue to tap into each moment. I see so much clearer everything going on around me. I can listen to myself and others more fully. The baggage concept of course was AMAZING to learn in a way that is clear and life changing. Once I could see baggage as baggage in myself , and then in others…wow…major shift. It really is the key… or one of them. Holding boundaries and stepping away from co-dependent relationships with ease and love. I have gained a visceral level of knowing…To say what I want to say, not what others want to hear. I feel strong, centred, free to explore, to be me in the true Self. Many large significant puzzle pieces which have been floating around on the table have been put into place.


“It is hard to put such a life changing experience into words. This course was not only about what I gained, but more importantly what I let go. I see myself for who I am for the first time in my life. And through seeing myself I see others for they truly are. The deep beautiful Self shines through.
This course has set me free. It’s given me a new look on life and a deeper understanding of myself. It’s allowed me to become aware of so much negative energy that had become normal to me. Breaking the shackles of my own mind and stepping into a new place of love, acceptance and understanding. It’s challenged me, but supported me at every slip on the way up. This has been the most incredible journey of my life. The synchronicities, the lessons, the energy and the support. It makes sense of all other journeys thus far and given me a skill set to navigate into the  future. This has truly changed who I am as a person and how I view the world. A new understanding for what is possible in life.”



“During the 6 month course I got to know myself more fully and deeply.

I was held in a safe container that allowed me to settle in and listen to what was going on inside for me. That alone allowed me to open up, explore, feel into, share and express what is true for me.

I gained confidence, an unwavering voice, a deep connection to Self, new awareness and appreciation for me and everyone around me.

I explored the depths of my internal ocean with the new learning of concepts we navigated through — together. The support from Lisa and Will, the Group and from my partner Annie allowed me to experience the full gamut of emotions whilst feeling deeply supported.

I now know how to stand in my truth, I know the importance of feeling into my feelings, I have a stronger sense of worthiness and know the true meaning of discernment – all of which I will carry into a new richness of life.”
