Mind, Body, Spirit and Emotions
In counselling it is possible for you to explore and relieve the thoughts, feelings and distress that you feel in response life's challenging events. I truly believe that through sharing with focus, understanding and empathy, you can find meaning, self understanding, and sort out the different threads of life experience, this then allows you to move on in life, more connected to your self, your ambitions, relationships and aspirations.
Working with The Heart Centered Process. This is an effective progression that allows a straightforward development away for these difficult feelings towards clarity, emotional balance and versatility. This work is profoundly life enhancing.
Deal with an issue or go deeper and progress on to life development work
I have had, particular experience, working with depression, anxiety, panic attacks, anger, addictions and relationships work. I find that these areas are symptomatic of, and are generally rooted in, deep emotional pain and that it is possible to explore and relieve this pain in the counselling setting. To do this I feel I connect to people at an emotional and spiritual level, I have found that by working with people on this bases , clients create new healthy ways of dealing with life and free-up a lot of energy for themselves for daily living and enjoyment. I have been greatly influenced by my training in Person Centered Theory and my supervisors modalities: Embodied, Jungian, psychoanalytic and Person Centered
I really enjoy working with people towards their life goals and objective's, this work is close to life coaching. I feel that I offer something special in this area, bringing a The Heart Centered Progression that allows people reach their potential
