Jody Rambold is a Registered Clinical Counsellor providing online and in-person counselling in Victoria BC. She works with individuals and couples on issues such as anxiety and stress, depression, grief and loss, trauma, addictions and substance use and chronic illness, to name a few. She has a passion for working with women to help build inner strength, wisdom, and resilience leading to greater contentment. The effects of early relational trauma are complex, often becoming stored in our bodies manifesting as distressing symptoms and behaviours. Over time, these can become problematic resulting in the need to reach out for help. Through a body-brain-based approach, Jody can assist with reducing distressing emotions.
Although Jody’s practice is diverse, she primarily works through a somatic attachment lens which means she uses the nervous system, and the counselling relationship as a guide, drawing on concepts from Polyvagal theory, Attachment theory, and Interpersonal Neurobiology to assist people in feeling greater contentment in their lives.
Jody provides an attuned, non-judgemental nurturing, and empathetic space for her clients. The focus of time together will be on building relationship, trust, and safety, going slowly, allowing space to process, and build awareness and connection between a person and others.
