Hi, my name is Inger Frombach! I am a clinical counsellor who has been helping individuals deal with the inevitable challenges of life for over twenty years. I have a Master’s degree in clinical counselling and foundational training in cognitive-behavioural therapy, bereavement counselling, narrative therapy, solution focused therapy and somatic psychotherapy. I also have extensive additional training in trauma recovery, Hakomi, equine guided counselling, reiki, Shamanic healing practices, mindfulness based stress reduction and trauma recovery.
I work collaboratively and holistically with clients to help them achieve positive personal growth and psychological wellbeing. I consider it a great honour to work with individuals to manage the stresses of life and release the wounds of the past in order to increase authenticity, engagement, meaning and life satisfaction.
My greatest joy is my two amazing, kind, wise children, a loving family just dysfunctional enough to be interesting and deep connections with true friends. I loves forest bathing, wisdom traditions, camping and poetry and have a radical fondness for nature and horses.
