Sometimes we feel bored, tired or anxious with our lives—we don’t know why despite living a comfortable existence. Encompassing provides counselling, group therapy and training to address existential crises, so that we can better develop ourselves personally and professionally.
We want to proudly tell ourselves that we are giving our best at living a meaningful and authentic life. Indeed, counselling is not only for those struggling with life, but for all of us who want to develop ourselves to our fullest potential.
This is a safe space where you can feel absolutely and completely free to find your own hope, meaning and peace for yourself, in your own way.
We offer a broad range of psychotherapy and counselling services to cater to your needs. Speak to us about your concerns and let us advise on what will work best for you.
This is not a therapy session. In this consultation, you will meet your therapist and find out more about them and existential therapy. This is a chance to discuss any concerns you may have and what the best course of treatment will be.
This is a 20 minute session and must be booked in advance.
Available online or via telephone.
Individual Psychotherapy / Counselling
$190 per 50 minutes
This is useful to explore problems that you have struggled for years in depth or to address more subtle difficulties. You will also gain tools and resources for increasing self-reflection and to become more empowered at handling difficulties.
It takes a while to reap the benefits of counselling so we will usually encourage you to go through a block of sessions before deciding if counselling is effective. Please speak to us about package deals.
Each counselling session is 50 minutes—usually a weekly session at an agreed day and time.
Available in clinic or online.

What does it mean to be alive and experience human conditions like meaning, responsibility, freedom, anxiety, uncertainty, life and death?
Group therapy is a useful way to understand these encounters and explore how we relate to others.

During those years, I witnessed Magdalen’s creative way of connecting with youth and parents when discussing very delicate topics, such as sexuality. You can’t help but notice how she could skillfully bring teens to be attentive and engaged in a span of 20 minutes or less, entrusting to her their thoughts and emotions.
It is always very clear that at the end of the facilitation, Magdalen, is able to form a relationship with them, judging from the very good evaluation she gets and the continued engagement with the youths. Her people skills are very consistent, that even when facilitating parents, she is able to acquire their interest and trust.
Magdalen has a unique way of communicating and connecting with people; she exudes a nice balance of profundity, vulnerability and amiability with people, which endear her to many of them. I wish her continued success, wisdom and joy in every endeavor that she would pursue.
