Hi there! I'm Marvel Adeyemi, a Holistic and Trauma Recovery Psychotherapist. 

Life has a way of leaving marks upon us, some of which are harder to see than others. If you were raised in an environment where boundaries, affection, care, and validation were absent, or if you've experienced the weight of being in the care of narcissistic parental figures, I want you to know that you're not alone. Your experiences are valid, and they've shaped you in ways that deserve acknowledgment and healing.

As adults, these experiences can manifest in unhealthy family dynamics, struggles with setting boundaries, people–pleasing, high-functioning tendencies, overachievement, low self-esteem, height sensitivity, struggle to assert your needs, sleep disorders, anxiety, depression and struggle to maintain healthy friendships and social connections in both personal and professional spheres.

I specialize in providing therapy to those who carry the burdens of childhood trauma, abandonment wounds, and the complexities of parent-child dynamics that have left enduring imprints on your sense of self. Using a caring and attachment-based framework at the core of my approach, based on building strong connections.

Your story doesn't end where your past has left you. It's the beginning of a powerful narrative of resilience, growth, and transformation. And I'm committed to helping you rewrite the narrative of your life.

At a tender age of 8, my family went through a heart-breaking separation. This personal experience has given me a profound understanding of the challenges that come with family separation, childhood trauma, and the accompanying feelings of abandonment and depression. It was during my own journey to recovery that I discovered the transformative power of psychotherapy. This is why I'm driven by a deep passion to extend the same level of unwavering support and guidance to others in their healing process.

With over 15 years of experience in the human services industry, I've had the privilege of working with individuals and families from all walks of life. My deep-rooted passion for mental health led me to pursue a master's degree in Counselling and another in Social Works upon moving to Australia.

My lived experience within a culturally diverse community and fluency in African languages provide me with a unique perspective on various issues. As a happily married woman and a mother of two adolescent children, I've learned first-hand the importance of adapting to change, accepting new cultures, and building resilient families.

 I collaborate with clients to achieve agreed-upon goals and treatment outcomes. Through evidence-based techniques and processes, I strive to  empower individuals to achieve their utmost potential.

As a Christian, I'm more than happy to provide counselling from a faith-based approach, always respecting the client's preferences and consent. I also find joy in partnering with grassroots community organizations and facilitating group wellbeing sessions, where we focus on developing social and emotional skills from a multi-cultural perspective. Together, we'll create a hopeful and positive future.

No matter your past, race, gender, or socio-economic status, I believe that healing, growth, and flourishing are possible for everyone. At Wholesome Counselling Services, you can expect culturally sensitive, empathetic, and professional mental health support.

If you're ready to embark on a transformative journey towards a healthier, happier you, I'm here to guide you every step of the way. Contact me today to book a consultation and take that courageous first step towards the life you deserve.

Welcome to Wholesome Counselling, where you'll find a warm and inviting space to embark on your journey towards healing, growth, and flourishing.
