How I work
I am a Psychosynthesis counsellor and therapist. What this means is that I take a holistic perspective of each client and the issue they are bringing. As well as helping the individual deal with the problem they are struggling with, I help them explore what may be going on at an unconscious level. In other words, we look at alleviating, or tackling, the surface 'symptom' while also addressing the 'cause'.
Sometimes counselling or therapy seeks only to eliminate the symptom, whether that be depression, anxiety, anger, addiction, jealousy or any number of problems. But unless we look below the surface to see what this symptom is saying about the individual's life, then the problem is likely to reappear further down the line.
One way of describing how I work is 'therapy with soul'. For a more detailed description read Therapy with soul
I am also
Psychosynthesis counselling and therapy takes a soulful approach. This means having a broader perspective on the problems someone brings. In many cases this can help you see your life in a different perspective - one that can bring a new sense of meaning and self-acceptance.
As well as exploring how the wounds of our past may be unconsciously influencing our present, a Psychosynthesis approach works with dreams and the imagination to more deeply investigate our deeper desires.
