Trouble with a relationship; loss of direction & purpose, anxiety or panic attacks; mood swings or depression - many people face difficulties in their everyday lives that can be hard to get on top of. Counselling gives us a set of tools we can use to help gain a better understanding of what’s causing these problems - and how you can move towards managing or resolving them.
On deeper inspection through depth psychotherapy, presenting symptoms signify an inner discord and provide an opportunity for growth at a very deep and spiritual level.
Transpersonal Psychotherapy goes beyond what is already known personally in to what has not yet been brought to light in the unconscious, depth Psychotherapy uses creative processes such as Transpersonal Dream work, imagery, guided visualisation and meditation to work with deep unconscious processes.
The aim is to help an individual be happier in the HERE AND NOW, by embodying a deep connection with Self, working through past difficulties, and cultivating a vision for a way forward that is in alignment their authentic Self.
Transpersonal Psychotherapy considers an individuals WHOLE being and life story; The journey so far and the past, the present where you find yourself now, a future version of yourself and uncovering potential, and the Spiritual aspects of Self, connection to inner guidance. The process of depth psychotherapy holds space for change to happen in a very deep and meaningful way.
Counselling takes place in a safe space, where you can meet with someone who will listen with sensitivity and empathy - and without judgement. In the therapy space thoughts and feelings can be expressed freely and in confidence.
Personal growth & Self Development
Whether it be refining or redefining personal goals, uncovering inner potential,exploring areas of stuckness, or realigning with a meaning and purpose that feels authentic for you - Psychotherapy can offer the space for reflection , and gaining a deeper understanding of what unconscious internalisations may be holding you back and creating a vision for a way forward.
Working together I can help you gain greater insight into the difficulties you are facing, help you understand why you act or react to them the way you do, and see how you can start to make better, healthier choices moving forward.
People come to me for help a wide range of issues. Here are a few of the more common difficulties that can be supported through counselling:
Feelings of stress or anxiety
Grief, loss or bereavement
Problems with addiction
Trauma and post-traumatic stress
Problems with confidence or self-esteem
Issues relating to sexuality
Difficulties at work or in retirement
Problems with family or school life
Loss of direction & purpose
Life brings many challenges, and it is understandable that at times we might look for support in facing them. As a counsellor my role is to provide space and guidance to help you on your journey of self-discovery; to enable you to examine your life and make new, meaningful choices within it.
I offer a chance to reflect on the difficulties or problems you are experiencing in a safe and confidential environment, with someone from outside your day-to-day life. Together we can explore your situation in a way that leads to fresh perspectives - and perhaps a new understanding of yourself. Counselling isn’t about giving you solutions or advice, but empowering you to make your own changes.
My style of working is called Integrative. This involves utlising many different styles of practice, to work in a way that is built around your specific needs. The work is client centered- which means my job is to accompany you on your journey - offering guidance from a psychological perspective- towards what the founder of person-centered counselling, Carl Rogers, called ‘self-actualisation’. Person-centered work is focused on empathy, a non-judgemental approach and providing guidance from a psycho-educational/ Psycho-Spiritual perspective; everyone has a built-in motivation to reach for their full potential, but sometimes need a bit of support to get there!
