There are many different approaches to psychotherapy. I use a holistic, integrative approach. This means that I use a variety of therapeutic modalities that relate to mind, body and soul when working with adults and couples in psychotherapy and counselling.
I use a combination of the approaches below depending on what is right for YOU :
In addition to these modalities my work is always:
With this Integrative approach to psychotherapy and counselling I use established therapeutic methods such as traditional "talk therapy", inner child work, emotional expression and release, guided visualization, dreamwork, expressive art, breathing & meditation, somatic/body awareness, somatic movement exercises, and dramatic enactment.
The aim of my approach is for you to develop a greater self-awareness and expand your understanding of how both past and present experiences and relationships influence your present feelings, emotions, thoughts, behaviors as well as health and body.
Bringing these hidden parts of yourself to awareness can help alleviate emotional and even physical symptoms. If you have tried to eliminate "negative" emotions, only to find yourself repeating the same old patterns, then you may find this approach helpful.
It is difficult to tune into the joy of being your authentic self and create the life you want if you are blocking out parts of your emotional world. Instead of trying to simply control or push down painful emotions, together we can help you face them.
Working in this framework allows the problems and symptoms you experience to become signs as to what your authentic self is asking you to envision and act upon. Your pain can become a doorway to personal growth, self-knowledge, healing and inner peace.
