My approach

 

"The values that are represented most in my life are compassion, authenticity, integrity, trust, courage and commitment. When I work I always focus on the possibilities and potential of each client in order to facilitate a more fulfilling and authentic life. I always listen with an open, curious and non-judgmental mind-set and strive to offer my opinion or advice with an equal amount of sincerity, humour and empathy. I love my profession and feel extremely privileged each time I witness the transformations people go through in therapy".

Body & Mind

My approach to therapy and counselling has always been with great focus on the connection between the body and the mind and I have been very aware of balancing the two areas educationally.

 

Process Experiential Therapy & Counselling

I am trained and certified both as Family Counsellor, Professional Counsellor and Psychotherapist within Process Experiential Therapy, which are separate degrees. The Process Experiential approach is based upon experiencing whatever goes on in the present moment. Weather its internally as a body-emotional experience or externally in interactions with others. My role is to help you pay attention to the process and to become aware of destructive patterns and their underlying potential which brings around change, emotional growth, and personal empowerment. I offer a unique combination of various techniques and methods that enable me to tailor-made each session to individual needs and requirements.

 

Ida Rolf Method & Reflexology

As we move through life we develop not only emotional but also physical patterns of preferred movements. Initially we choose our movement patterns but, as they become familiar, they fall outside the zone of consciousness and we move with comparatively little awareness. I have implemented various skills from my background within the Ida Rolf Method and Reflexology into my Therapeutic approach that provides a “window of awareness” between muscular tension, digestive issues and pent-up emotions.

 

Social Work

Social work has always been the core from which my work and values derive. 

I have always found it essential to serve the thriving of others and to volunteer my time whenever it’s possible. I have an inherent desire to improve the lives of people who are less fortunate or unable to advocate for themselves and I respect the differences between my personal beliefs and those of my clients, taking ethnic and cultural diversity into account

I operate with a high level of integrity, which means acting honest, responsible and ethical at all times. Finally I continually strive to improve my knowledge by making contributions to my profession and participating in continuing education classes or professional conferences on a regular basis.

 

Mindfulness

I have found that the philosophy and techniques of Mindfulness easily integrates with the Process Experiential Therapeutic process. Since they both evolves around being in the present moment in a non-judgmental way with awareness, openness, and acceptance. This approach have demonstrated efficacy in treating a wide range of issues including eating disorders, weight and body image difficulties, anxiety, stress, depression, postnatal depression, trauma, phobias and relationships.
