Rebecca & Vince are the Creators & Facilitators of
LoveAlive Transformative Arts & Therapy.
As a devoted couple, (Beloveds), we are dedicated to the Healing & Transformational journey of becoming Conscious Creators of Compassionate Connection in our Relationship with ourselves,
in our Relationship with one another,
and in the world.
We see this as a way for us to "be the change", contributing to the Creation of the Vision of Compassionate Interdependance, as many of us are choosing to do, creating a butterfly effect of Transformation around the world.

Healing, Learning, Growth, & Transformation?

How we Support You
We Harmonize Powerful Perspectives & Traditions of
Psychology, Science, Arts, & Spirituality ~
To support deep integration of Health for
Mind, Heart, Body, & Spirit.
The Following is what informs our practice:
A Spiritual Perspective
Offering Evidence based Counselling from a
Spiritually Sensitive Lens
LoveAlive is founded on the principals of Transpersonal (Spiritual) Psychology which works with the understanding that, through Divine Source (a Mystery greater than ourselves, known by many names) we are all interconnected and interdependent.
These connections we share with all living beings are designed to sustain Life and to catalyze and nourish our spiritual growth.
From this framework, it is understood that greater, more rapid personal growth, healing & fulfillment is possible through conscious connection with Divine Source & our own spiritual essence.
Transpersonal Psychology, supports opening perceptive possibilities,
practices, and techniques for embracing the emotional challenges we experience internally and in relationships as opportunities to catalyze and nourish our spiritual growth and psychological maturity.
We respect & sensitively support you in your unique experience regarding spiritual, religious, & cultural identity & traditions.

We relate from a place of personal authenticity and real connection.
We respect your unique identity & experience. With sensitivity, empathy, & compassion, we seek to understand your unique experience of life without making assumptions. We support your personal goals & process of discovery.

Conscious Hearted Communication
Through years of study & practice, inspired by my own personal challenges in relationships and communication along with my greater vision for kind, generative relating and compassionate interdependence,
I’ve developed an integrated combination of 3 foundational Pillars of Knowledge & Practice
to provide a Communication Model that helps you build the knowledge & skills you need for a greater capacity to Communicate with Clarity and Compassion
& Create Healthy Thriving Relationships.
1. Evidence Based Psychology & Therapeutic Models
2. Compassionate Communication ~ Also known as
Was developed by Marshall Rosenberg, a heartful visionary who grew up within the inner city violence of Detroit and was deeply moved to develop ways to build bridges, and resolve conflicts more peacefully.
By the 1960's, he became a Dr. of Psychology & mediator. He Developed an in depth framework and basic structure for what he originally called Nonviolent Communication.
NVC emphasizes Empathy, Compassion, Non Judgment, Deep Listening, and expressing honestly through:
The Four Components of NVC:
Observations without Judgment, Feelings, Needs, & Requests.
In his teachings, he offers deep insights and practical applications for each of these.
As a peacemaker, teacher, and author, he shared his passion for creating compassionate relationships worldwide which is now maintained through the Centre for Nonviolent Communication.
3. Ancient Wisdom Traditions
The teachings of Conscious Hearted Communication are influenced by personal experiences and teachings of many Ancient Wisdom Traditions that we have been blessed to receive and practice from the 4 corners of the world, with a focus in Nature based wisdom, mindfulness, ecstatic, meditative breathwork, contemplative, and practical applications to cultivate Awareness, Clarity, Compassion, and Union with this Sacred Gift of Life that dwells within each and every one of us ~
Every Living Being.

Values of LoveAlive
Our Guiding Light
Humility & Respect
We honour the dignity of all people, treating people with care and promoting self respect.
Humility is a state beyond self orientation, an empathic awareness of the life that surrounds us, leading to an energy of Reverence, Wonder, and Grace.
Holding a perspective of non-assumption; an attitude of seeking to understand.
Integrity & Honesty
We live by our Values and follow through with commitments. Integrity is when our actions are congruent with our words and energy. Speaking and inner reflection guided by Truth and Love.
Conscious Courageous Relationship
& Emotional Responsibility
We promote and cultivate emotionally responsible relationships ~ taking 100% responsibility for how we choose to respond to our experience.
We cultivate Vulnerable Leadership and Authentic Connection.
We value Balance in relationship ~ to honour the feelings and needs of both self and other.
Spirit flows through all life. We all rely on one another to live, including the elements, plants, and animals, and unto the Great Mystery of the universe.
We are all a part of One Whole Being. With appreciation for the Gift of Life,
we cultivate active compassion for All our Relations.
Balance & Reciprocity
Giving and Receiving are 2 parts of one cycle.
We honour the cycles of seasons, life & death, elements, & polarities. We honour all aspects of human being - mind, heart, spirit, & body and the spectrum of human feeling;
acknowledging the roles of these in harmony.
Curiosity, Fun, & Humor
We seek to understand the hidden workings of ourselves, our lives,and the mysteries; to ponder more deeply, (“get curious” about) that which we may have taken for granted or assumed about what reality is and our role in creating our experience of it.
We embrace the medicine of laughter, humour, and play.
Creativity opens a freedom for the Mind, Heart, Body, and Spirit to alchemize and integrate polarities; the known and the unknown, the conscious and unconscious; it is key to healing and Transformation. Creativity is a defining feature of humanity, culture, and resilience.
Creativity is integral to activate healing and transformation within individuals and groups ~ As people have through the arts in all cultures since the beginning of time.
Values ~ An Inner Guiding Light
Values are an inner Guiding Light. They are always there to help guide your path and take you where you really want to go. They can help clear away the murkiest fog and steer you in the right direction when things go sideways ~ as long as you know your Values and choose to work with them, they can be a very powerful tool.
“Allow your heartfelt Values to help you guide your way and
be a Conscious Creator of your Life.”
