I offer one to one sessions in Core Process Psychotherapy. This is a mindfulness based approach which emphasizes the exploration of our moment to moment experience and our relationship to this. Often we cannot change the experience that we are having, but we can change our attitudes and feelings and positions around this.
Another helpful aspect to this approach is exploring what is taking place between the therapist and the client, which after all is a relationship too. In time, when there is enough trust and safety and resources established, this kind of exploration can be extremely fruitful.
I have a particular interest in seeing people in their wholeness, working with a warm-hearted contemplation of this unique person before me - what aspect is it that really requires our attention today?
This holistic approach can take us into many different aspects of experience including - the existential, the body,our unattended grief and sorrow our cultural conditioning and our very earliest experiences of life to name but a few. This perspective has become popularized in the last few decades as a developing body of work as the Integral view and Integral Psychology by Ken Wilbur and others.
