I am a qualified integrative transpersonal psychotherapist and counsellor. I provide a space in which you, the client, can arise from out of the struggles or challenges that you are confronted with right now. As a psychotherapist it is my purpose to help you to comprehend the emotional, the psychological and relational aspects of what you, the client, are dealing with and then become open to seeing that you were always perfect. Sometimes we can get so overwhelmed by the trials of life and its challenges, that we often forget what lies in amongst the overgrown weeds of all that is unexamined.
I am experienced in working with addiction which is very much about hiding the true self. My experience has been working with the substance abuser, the addicted other and supporting the process of recovery from addiction. Most often the underlying constituents of addiction are low-self esteem, low mood, depression, anxiety, the guilt and shame of the past. Overwhelmingly, it is these elements upon which the early phase of the therapeutic work is often based. The hope then, is for you the client, to go beyond the negative inner discord, to a more contented and unified self.
I believe that therapy is about becoming curious about why one does the things they do or reacts in the way they do in their life and become courageous to what is found in the exploration. I feel strongly that my purpose is to 'witness' your discovery and help you integrate that in to your life and then let go of what no longer serves you. Not an easy journey upon which to travel but one that is worthwhile.
I also offer coaching which is a more directive approach at 6-12 week blocks and I offer a limited number of low cost and student slots.
