Kaia Nightingale, MA, Experienced Spiritual Counsellor

In-person, phone and Skype consultations

Kaia offers capable, caring support during unusual states of consciousness. Drawing from extensive first hand experience, scientific research and client work, she can guide your way forward through her understanding and a range of therapeutic methods.

  • Non-medical approach focused on positive outcomes
  • Guidance, practical steps and free resources

Kaia specializes in altered states of consciousness arising from meditation, kundalini awakening, mystical experiences, shamanic ceremonies, workshops, retreats, recreational drugs, life stresses, or grace (no apparent reason!). She brings context to help understand unusual experiences, keep balance with daily life, manage sensitivity and integrate transformational shifts to reap their gifts.

Why Spiritual Counselling?

Rapid change in the world around us combined with deep disillusionment with our current paradigm means many are awakening. It’s not always easy. Raw, intuitive eyes looking out on a misaligned world can be despairing, especially when what was previously believed or trusted is found to be limited or false. The awakened are fish swimming up stream amidst shoals swimming to industrial tunes. The awakened are currently misunderstood and disparaged by adherents to traditional ways. Someone who understands is a lifeline.

There are ways to manage, integrate and adjust to these inner and outer changes. Transformation has its own logic, which when worked with, makes navigation much easier. Conventional health professionals believe in a chemical model that omits our spiritual essence, intent and power to heal. Their model omits the parts life force energy, emotions and karmic past play in our challenges and gifts. It takes one who has gone through deep transformational difficulty and has sat with spiritual anomalies long enough to figure them out.

Our journey is shortened by having our questions answered. Our spiritual path becomes more direct, effective and on target. Drawing from someone with experience can go a long way. We don’t all need to invent all our wheels first hand!
