Tina Leniuk-Wright UKCP, MBACP, APP
One of the most difficult parts of the therapeutic process is taking that first step – deciding to talk to someone. The counselling that I offer provides a safe, confidential space for clients to explore difficult issues, obstacles, choices, and aspirations.
I work in a psychosynthetic context that within each individual there exists both a personality (patterns of behaviour) as well as a spiritual aspect (our innate potential) encompassing work at the levels of mind and thinking, body and feeling, spirit and purpose. In our personal and professional lives each of us is a Self that is both divine and human.
My work focuses on the whole of the individual holding that we are each unique with our own past experiences, present life, and emergent potential. Rather than rely on our own inner wisdom at times we adapt ourselves and dismiss our intuitions; finding personal fulfilment, purpose and meaning can get lost in the process and we then experience difficulties living our lives as authentically as we can. Connecting to our own inner wisdom allows us to create an opportunity to respond with curiosity rather than react from a place of impulse or protection.
I work with people from all walks of life. My approach is based upon the work of Italian psychiatrist, Roberto Assagioli, a colleague and contemporary of both Freud and Jung. Along with philosophy and mysticism he also studied in depth both Eastern and Western spiritual traditions of the world. Referring neither to religious doctrine or spiritual practice, he described the psychospiritual aspect of this therapy as referring to our deepest, innermost relationship with the sacred. The integration and synthesis of these wisdoms makes Psychosynthesis therapy and counselling unique.
I work with adults on a long term basis to help clients gain understanding of how their present experience may be impacted by past issues and experiences. Short term work helping clients to achieve goals they have set for themselves is also available.
I am offering counselling in the Horsham area of West Sussex. Low cost sessions may be available as I believe no one should be precluded from counselling due to financial constraints.
