My name is Esther Diplock and I am a counsellor and educator in private practice.
I have a passion and commitment to see healing and wholeness in people's lives.
I love to journey with those who are seeking to find ways of living in peace, with joy.
Choose Life, Love, Healing ...
I am not the 'expert' when it comes to you! Instead, I desire to create a supportive environment where you can find the courage and strength to Choose Life, Love, and Healing!
"Esther has a unique way of communicating and listening. She is very different to other counsellors I’ve been to. I really value her ability to hold pain - it becomes almost this tangible thing, suspended in a moment of time - she holds it with me and doesn't rush on from it. She creates a space that is painfully vulnerable but somehow safe and sacred. I really admire that and want to be like that. I don't want to be Esther, I want to be me, and I want to learn to hold people's pain with such respect and calm. I wonder about the journey that brought Esther to today. I am grateful to God that she has had the grit and tenacity to journey through whatever it is she's had to face in this life to come to a place where she can help others as significantly as she does.” - Jade, mid 20’s
"Esther has provided me with a safe, supportive and creative space in which to heal my life. I have been able to reframe experiences from the past, allow grief to be felt and start holding hope for my future. If my thoughts patterns were a house then they have had a full renovation, and now we are working on adding wonderful, new extensions! The best decision I have ever made was making my first appointment with Esther, and I encourage anyone considering seeking help to do so - you are worth it!" - Katherine, late 20's
"Counselling with Esther opened up the path to healing for me. Over time I gained tools to help myself, as well as awareness that has been invaluable in learning to walk free..." - Male, early 30's.
"Esther creates a space that is MY space. She has a gift for noticing and finding the significant in what I thought to be insignificant. I've done a lot of growing in this space." - Deb, mid 30's. (Sessions occurred over a 3 year period.)
