How I work …
My core training is in Psychosynthesis counselling, which is a holistic and integrative model. This means that in your sessions we will pay attention to your whole person: body, mind, feelings and spiritual, and take into consideration all your needs, from the basic psychological needs for security, love, relationships, respect and recognition, to the needs for meaning, higher values and self-realisation.
In your sessions, along with talking therapy, I can use many simple and effective psychosynthesis techniques such as guided imagery, visualisation, inner dialogue, dream work and drawing. These are just some of the tools which I can use to help you to broaden your awareness of yourself and the world around you, and to get in touch with your inner strengths and wisdom so that you can make a positive change in your life.
