Marie Hernqvist O'Neill (Pg Dip Counselling)
1 Kirkwood Place
Lower London Rd
Using a spiritual, existential approach I see therapy as a means for awakening and self-realisation. I believe that any difficulty or life situation can be used as a tool to better understand ourselves, our world and our beliefs.
As an ordained Interfaith Minister I do not follow any particular faith system, but remain open to people of all faiths and none. Spiritual counselling is not necessarily about exploring issues around spiritual beliefs, but rather exploring all dimensions of any situation until we can transcend it and be more fully ourselves.
The benefits of spiritual therapy include a better understanding of ourselves in the word, a sense of meaning in life, an ability to cope with difficult feelings or situations as well as more self-confidence and enjoyment in our everyday lives.
Spiritual therapy is suitable to anyone, whether you are going through a crisis, looking for meaning in life, tools for coping or personal development.
I have many years experience of working in the field of mental health, using a person centred approach and teaching meditation, mindfulness and other techniques to relieve stress and improve self-esteem.
