Here For You, as you explore and grow
Individuals seek therapy/counselling in times of crisis, dissatisfaction, trauma, grief or to gain personal understanding, healing and growth and I'm guessing that's where you are, and I can help.
Some of what previous clients have come to me with include:
Personal Development and growth
new life circumstances
relationship issues (self, partner, children, parents, in-laws, colleagues etc)
a challenging life situation
stress and needing to remain calm
trauma (hi-jacking, rape, etc)
Sometimes it's been about growth and finding purpose, e.g
a new job
a new relationship
You are the expert in your life and world as well as have to do the actual work (and of course pay me), I will provide the best service I am able to create the conditions and integrate the tools in my toolbox to facilitate the process for your healing and growth. Through the corrective experience of the therapeutic process and relationship AND as you show up for yourself in therapy, therapy/ counselling can bring peace, self-reflection, meaning and insights into yourself and your life. The ultimate outcome is for you to be the best version of yourself as you navigate life, in all its joys and challenges, so you can show up for you and those around you.
Together, within the therapeutic frame and using a variety of tools, we explore, validate/release your stuck experiences, create meaning and purpose, while offering you new ways of being.
I use an integrated approach to assist you in your journey. I work both with what's happening internally for you as well as the impact you have on others.
During sessions there is a relationship building phase which is made up of talk sessions, where I get a sense of what brought you to see me and what we should do in the process of therapy. We then may move on to the stablisation/safety stage if needed based on where you are at, and then the intervention phase, to address the issues you came to therapy for, followed by the maintenance/personal growth phase. These are adapted based on your issue and where you are as well as what may be needed as we progress in the work. The average duration is usually 3 months - a year. Sessions can be made up of talking, BWRT, Brainspotting, Systemic Constellations, HeartMath, Emotionally Focused Therapy and other modalities in your process.
