Combining my experience of psychotherapy and energetic healing allows me to provide a unique, holistic support for my clients in their healing journey.
How could I benefit?
You do not have to be sick to benefit from psychotherapy and energetic healing. It may be that you would like to feel more enthusiastic about your life or let go of the past. You could just feel a bit stuck and not sure where to go in your life, or it could be that you are dealing with a trauma or chronic illness.
I help people with a range of issues including:
- Work on family or relationship challenges
- Recovery from depression
- Low self-esteem
- Attachment issues
- Building inner happiness and a positive outlook
- Creating meaningful and fulfilling relationships
- Better managing everyday stress and anxiety
What Therapy with me Looks Like
In your session, you will experience this powerful combination of psychotherapy, counselling and energetic healing. It is a no-touch therapy where we work together to assess your goals for treatment, before embarking on your healing journey together.
I work with clients to assist them to access their own inner wisdom as they navigate life’s ups and downs, grow in self-compassion, have a better relationship with themselves and others, and to change patterns that are no longer helpful, in order to find more joy in life, be more authentically in the present and fulfilled, whatever may be going on. I work from the knowing that everything my client needs is already within them.
I know from years of supporting people experiencing struggle and from my own experiences as a client, that even when life feels hopeless and overwhelming, we all have the capacity to grow into more wholeness and strength, and we are all deserving of feeling more hopeful and joyous about ourselves and our life.
One of the most healing experiences we can have is to be deeply seen, heard, witnessed and acknowledged in a non-judgemental way by another person. You are free to show up with me exactly as you are: resentful, depressed, anxious, lonely, in grief, or happy and content. Together, our work will be founded in compassion, acceptance and non-judgement.
I will ask questions and sometimes just hold space as we move through emotions and experiences. We will sometimes laugh and sometimes cry, we will lean into the moment together.
I follow Yalom’s approach of bringing my whole being, my whole heart into therapy. My practice is founded on Rogerian Person Centred Therapy, unconditional positive regard, deep empathy, and the belief in each person moving toward a form of ‘self-actualization’. In the session I am always mindful of the interplay of body, mind and spirit as equal components of who you are.
Other techniques I integrate are:
- Somatic practices (Focusing)
- Self-compassion and mindfulness practices
- Internal Family Systems
- Yalom’s Existential Approach
- Roger’s Person Centered Therapy (PCT)
- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
- Narrative Therapy
- Family Systems
- Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction
How many sessions will I need?
This varies depending on the person, the issue and their goals. We will discuss frequency and duration in our first session.
I work with many clients online using a video conferencing platform, you will be sent a client form to fill in prior to our session.
I look forward to supporting you in your own, unique journey of healing. After all…You are the Art.
“When you go out into the woods, and you look at trees, you see all these different trees. And some of them are bent, and some of them are straight, and some of them are evergreens, and some of them are whatever. And you look at the tree and you allow it. You see why it is the way it is. You sort of understand that it didn’t get enough light, and so it turned that way. And you don’t get all emotional about it. You just allow it. You appreciate the tree.
The minute you get near humans, you lose all that. And you are constantly saying ‘You are too this, or I’m too this.’ That judgment mind comes in. And so I practice turning people into trees. Which means appreciating them just the way they are.” – Ram Das
