We haven’t ever experienced anything like what you’ve worked to intentionally create for the therapeutic space. It is just that actually …. space …. safe space.... our body hasn’t ever experienced being in a space where it’s so supported to be calm and connected to deep energies and then to share this with you …. another person. Totally new experience for us all ….It actually helps us trust when there is no pressure from the therapist or agenda or assessment of everything we say into their framework of understanding that they then put onto us to define who we are and what our dysfunction is that requires fixing. There’s never been safe space in relationship for us to explore who we might be …. you hold space in such a large way including the earth and elements and nature and the animal beings help because they haven’t ever been so disconnected from it all …. they have so much to show us. Our brain can’t learn to be less fearful if we aren’t actually having better relationships and environments and experiences. Yet no therapy has ever considered this … then our ‘failure’ to think ourselves ‘better’ got us rejected and shamed by the very people who were supposed to be helping us.
What an amazing experience to leave the worries of the world behind and escape to such a beautiful part of the country. Lovely green rolling hills, gentle valleys, sun soaked fields and boundless deep rooted trees. Such a serene and rejuvenating retreat with an equally amazing inspiring lady and a beautiful family to match. Bianca seems to draw her energy from the very wind itself, seeing only strengths within those she meets and graced with a gift to share. This trip has been one of those moments in life when you get an opportunity to stop, reflect and listen to the tranquility of the peaceful landscape whilst drawing inward in search of some hidden fire within. Of special note was the experience of sitting around the 'Bidagubala' (becoming quiet) yarning circle at different times of the day whilst listening to the gentle trickle of the pond, the various sounds of many diverse birds, the swaying of the leaves or the crackling of the fire. Such a calm amazing place to be. An what an amazing privilege to be part of such a deep and respectful service of the traditional smoking ceremony and 'Welcome to Country' conducted by knowledgeable Kaurna / Peramangk elder, Ivan-Tiwu Copley OAM. Having never attended such a ceremony before I was mesmerised by Ivan's story telling and intrigued by his skill and knowledge of the land and the traditions of his people. It was a very special morning that added another layer to the depth of experience of feeling one with the country and its surroundings. Loooooooooved it.
Thank you so much Bianca, feeling very relieved. Highly recommend this beautiful, caring person.
I have known Bianca for many years as a friend, mother, partner and professional. She is gifted with an extraordinary blend of strength, passion and commitment to effect positive change in the lives of women seeking support and the tools available to them. Bianca is a logical and articulate thinker with a grass roots attitude that endears her to many. I would recommend Bianca as a wise investment of time and energy for any woman on a personal journey of empowerment and self fulfilment.
“The online course offered by Bianca Stawiarski from Warida Wholistic Wellness made me completely change the way I think about myself. Despite not looking back (because it’s a can of worms and I didn’t want to go there) but looking forward, I have learned to value, like and love myself. This has lifted my self-esteem, which has resulted in a more confident and assertive me … and I like it! I found Bianca professional yet approachable. Personally, I am more confident, content and aware of my needs and how they fit in with other people in my life. I’m happier to say no in a constructive manner, happier to do things for myself and find a balance so I continue to help others without jeopardising my needs.”
I was so anxious about finding a counsellor and stirring up all the feelings that I had spent a lifetime avoiding, but when I went to see Bianca I really wondered why I had waited for so long. Bianca gives you such a calm space to talk through what's happening, she shows so much empathy and patience, she is on your team to help give you the tools to move forward in those 'stuck' areas of life, but you also come away from each session feeling that she's not just trying to help you problem solve but that she deeply cares about you as a person. I cannot recommend Bianca enough for counselling and coaching - it's definitely been transformational for me! Thank you with all my heart Bianca.
Having had sessions of counselling and coaching with Bianca over the last few months has started me on a path I thought I would never had the courage to tread. Not only do I now start to understand and have patience with myself and those around, I'm embarking on two new and exciting business ventures. Without Bianca's patience and enthusiasm it would be another 20 years before my life moved forward ....too late then! Thank you for all you've done for me Bianca, x.
Bianca has been amazing with my teenage daughter. My daughter is on the Autism Spectrum and doesn't respond well to conventional therapy. Bianca's Horse Wisdom program combined with horse archery has supported my daughter's development of her emotional awareness. I also love how well Bianca and my daughter get along. I highly recommend Bianca's services.
I felt I needed help recently so I asked a friend who happended to have just started a business helping people! I have to say after only 2 sessions I'm already feeling so much better and more at peace and even a bit excited about what the future promises, than I have in the past 2 years trying to work through things out for myself!! If you feel like you need help in what ever it is that's happening with your life, or feel you need help in working towards something, please consider Bianca Stawiarski.
Bianca is certainly an inspiration. The tool she uses in her coaching has rallied me to become more positive, focused and strong. I have now set myself goals and slowly achieving them. I highly recommend this service to anyone that is in need of help or to see where you want your life to head and how to go about achieving it. After only one session I came away feeling inspired to make some positive changes in life and say YES I can do things.
