Emotional Healing Counseling
Jon Terrell, M.A.

I work with adult clients who are seeking support for emotional healing. I specialize in the following:

  • Grief and Loss
  • Anger
  • Shame
  • Anxiety and Worry
  • Spiritual Emergency/Crisis
  • Problems in Meditation
  • Difficult Life Transitions
  • Relationship Problems
  • Feeling Stuck in Life

One unique feature of my counseling is that I recommend client's attend at least one of our emotional healing retreats. I find the retreat work greatly speeds up emotional healing, saving time and money. The retreats can heal issues that no amount of talking can because at the retreats you go beyond your thinking into where the issues are trapped, in your body.

Grief and Loss Retreat helps those clients in Grief Counseling, and those experiencing depression. It's for people who are working through the pain of a particular loss, of a parent, child, partner, etc. It's also for those who have experienced many smaller losses, not just of people, but of dreams they have had about themselves, loss of health, loss of youth, etc.

Shalom Retreat helps clients who feel stuck in their lives. It's for anyone who has buried uncomfortable feelings or feel unable to manage difficult feelings like anger or jealousy or shame.

Philosophy of Emotional Healing Counseling
My practice is based on deep and compassionate listening to words said and unsaid.

My approach is positive and supportive. I avoid the use of diagnostic labels as they start from what is wrong and not functioning and focus on problem behaviors. Instead, my focus is solution-oriented, focusing on client strengths and potentials. I help clients reconnect with and express the healing life force within them.

I believe in the interaction of our body, minds and spiritual dimensions of life and encourage my clients to look at their lives holistically and comprehensively. In my practice I use imagery, meditation and energy work as appropriate and encourage clients to move beyond fixed perspectives, thoughts and emotions by using a whole range of approaches.

A Client Comment:

"Your counseling has been like sunshine, melting away years of confusion, pain and suffering. I always wanted to feel whole and to have self love but I was unable to do so through my self study and work with other therapists. Your ability and talent to speak the steps is like a GPS to heal and transform me and save my life from a long journey into a void. I have learned to love myself and to walk closer to God. We never know the future or the curves we will face, but you are a healer. Thank you for caring enough to make a difference in the lives of those who have so much to give and truly want a life of wholeness. I wasn’t able to heal the childhood and insecurities in my before your help." Sarah V, Ohio

Private Counseling
I see clients in person in my office in Northampton, Massachusetts and New York City. I also work at a distance, using the telephone and Skype. My distance work is $160 /hr. Distance meditation training sessions cost $175 and take about an hour and include written instructions. Clients can pay by check or through PayPal or other service.

All work is strictly confidential. I do not take insurance, but keep my fees reasonable. There is some tuition assistance available for the retreats.
