Length of Therapy


Depending on the level of difficulty some people attend for a shorter number of sessions and reach a level of clarity which satisfies them.  For others there is a desire to unearth and bring into conscious awareness restrictive patterns which they want to finally release.  This might involve engaging for a lengthier period longer than the six recommended commencement sessions.   Each person comes to a place of recognition of what is enough time and this can also be explored together.


Issues Addressed and Special Interests


As my trainings cover all experiences from our very beginnings to our current day, at times I name psychotherapy as a coming home.  Our earliest experience was to be fully alive and in our bodies, experiencing life itself.  Along our path we have multiple experiences which separate us from remaining with our true nature and aliveness.  Our exploration together is to retrieve this.  We regain a new form of relating to ourselves followed by relating to others and to all we engage with.  It brings expansiveness, and opens more fully to the expression of our creativity and aliveness.

At times of moderate to severe trauma whether during our formative years or non supported later life trauma we move into a rhythm of living life from our intellect, rational thought rather than in our body and the aliveness of the moment.  We are therefore not fully present just to be.  We feel and respond to life by the natural movement of feelings in our body.  Our returning to embrace our true nature is a return to full embodiment and life.  Many times as a child not emotionally assisted, experience felt overwhelming and had to be cut off from.  Feelings can can continue to hold a flavour of ‘being too much’.  Modern day psychotherapy as I practice it involves a slow, manageable reconnection which can happen alongside all the needs our adult life asks of us.

Couple Therapy


People can truly love each other but not always have the skills to maintain a good relationship of mutual respect and communication.  Conflict arises which we have not been educated or modelled in dealing with and slowly over time hurt, distance  and alientation become the norm.  As I practice couple work some of my first words are right and wrong remain outside the door and two ‘rights’ arrive, but are at a distance from each other.  What is  undertaken by both is the art of being honest, available to name and to hear what each one is experiencing and to begin a new rhythm of collaboration, re-connection and expression of love.


Clinical Supervision


As a supervisor we explore all of relationship dynamics, clients world of relating and involvement, the dyad of client therapist. 

Again the orientation of viewing would have the influences of object relations, attachment, embodiment, search for love and meaning. Where fear can sabotage. The place of love and within the therapeutic relationship managing the closeness of that. Parralles and circles.

What you can expect from a first session


The purpose of our first session is to acquaint ourselves, for you to name your current situation, and to explore whether I am the person to best assist you. If you feel this is the case we then put in place six sessions following which, our work together is reviewed and checked whether more sessions are desired or needed by you.
