By working with a therapist we can develop greater acceptance and self care. A therapist can encourage us to bring kind awareness to limiting self-beliefs and help us access our potential to live in more satisfying ways. I believe that it’s through awareness and kindness that change and growth are possible.
I see therapy as a collaborative process, where we build a shared basis of trust, respect and safety. Within this atmosphere of care, you can develop confidence in yourself and find the inner wisdom needed to face difficulty.
The term ‘psychotherapy’ could be translated as soul-care, and my own path has included a spiritual dimension, exploring dreams, imagination and archetypes. I don’t see this as necessary for everyone, but it forms the background of my therapeutic work.
