Understanding behaviours and awareness of triggers in a nonjudgemental way will assist you to pivot your path toward a peaceful outcome, where you can respond instead of react. Connecting the balance of mind and body balance.

 

Keys to your peace are through the acceptance and validation of your emotions. We are all allowed to feel what we feel and we can still respond and be heard without creating further damage to ourselves and others by having a compassionate perspective and dialogue.

Counselling & Psychotherapy

I provide a co-active integrated client centred counselling/coaching approach to Adult Individuals and Couples who are seeking improvement in their lives and relationships. My approach is influenced by these approaches to assist you in alleviating stress responses.

Buddhist Modern Psychology, "believes our psychological state depends not so much on our particular circumstances, but more on how we relate to what life brings our way. It acknowledges that pain – whether physical or emotional – is an unavoidable part of life and with that pain comes some suffering.  However, as human beings we tend to add additional layers of psychological suffering by how we engage with our experiences. In particular, it’s a strong desire to control things – to hang on to what we want and push away what’s unpleasant – that gets us into trouble." 

Positive Psychology, "the scientific study of the strengths that enable individuals and communities to thrive. The field is founded on the belief that people want to lead meaningful and fulfilling lives, to cultivate what is best within themselves, and to enhance their experiences of love, work, and play." 

Jungian Psychology, " psychotherapeutic approach of Analytical Psychology in which the analyst and patient work together to bring unconscious elements of the psyche into a more balanced relationship with conscious awareness and experience in an effort to discover meaning, facilitate maturation of the personality, improve mental health or provide relief to psychological suffering."

 

Some techniques I incorporate to our collaborative work together also involves science based,  HeartMath+ "research demonstrates different patterns of your heart activity have different effects on your thoughts and behaviours." Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy, Acceptance Therapy, Solutions Focused Brief Therapy, Gottman Couples Therapy Approach, Hypnotherapy & Neurolinguistic Programming, Holistic Approaches, & more. 

MBCT & ACT & SFBT

Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy utilizes Cognitive Therapy with the addition to promoting mindfulness and meditative approaches. Acceptance Therapy compliment MBCT through learning to surrender and accept what we can change and what we cannot but building resiliency and still honouring what we are experiencing and feeling is valid. Solutions Focus Brief Therapy is exactly that, finding more a solutions focused approached to challenges again while validating our feelings are true and real to us, yet, moving forward towards freedom and peace. 

Couples Therapy 

I work with both heterosexual and homosexual couples, assisting them with the tools to understand where their partner is coming from. Accepting differences as a gift rather than a burden whilst working together to meet in the middle. Discovering the dating ritual, the phases in relationships, and the individual developmental phases that your partner is in helps you to navigate through uncharted stressful territories. Through understanding men and women, and mapping out each other's love maps, love languages and wounds and shadows do you discover how to approach one another in away that empowers each other.

My Approach

I provide an integrated co-active client centred counselling/coaching approach to adult Individuals and couples who are seeking improvement in their lives and relationships. Enhancing self awareness and boundaries along with several approaches are provided to assist you in alleviating discomforts, some are listed above and each is tailored to you. Providing you with healthy habits & tools that you can apply during real-time high stressful moments.  

We review your current struggles and map out your path by looking into the past wounds that have filtered your current perceptions, behaviours, habits and interaction with others. Bringing healing to past traumas creates peace and understanding with yourself and others promoting self actualization. We were all taught inappropriately not to feel our emotions and minimize our struggles, which creates dysfunction in our adult present lives. By understanding your current behaviours and challenging the thoughts behind them, creates a different experience, emotion and behaviour. 

When you connect with yourself you can engage and connect deeper with others. Strengthening your self care, boundaries promotes healthier relationships and open communication. Understanding yourself unlocks the ability to start understanding where the other person is coming from, bridging an alliance, the common goal to connect. 

Taking a more curious and neutral observance rather than blaming, criticizing, victimizing yourself or others frees you from the binds of discordance. Validating everyone's uniqueness, emotions and values whilst achieving compromise and a unity.
