I have found the most powerful way to help someone is to let them be seen, heard and touched.

 

Talking Therapy

Exploring where client is right now in their life.

Using different counselling/psychotherapy techniques to explore life story, such as ….

  • Using pyschodynamic model, explore early life conditioning and behaviours to see if they are played out in present day life.
  • Exploring which of these behaviours may be getting in the client’s way of creating the life that they want (self-defeating behaviours).
  • Exploring goals of client to see what life they wish to create.
  • Using Gestalt model to explore feelings and sensations in client’s body to bring more body awareness of connection of feelings to the body.
  • Using Cognative Behaviour model to help develop connection between thoughts, emotions and behaviours and discover core beliefs.
  • Uncovering personalities/archetypes that reside within us and the stories they tell around our emotional needs.
  • Exploring how/if our emotional needs are being met and if not what behaviours may result around this.
  • Discovering the inner child and what emotional needs they may be expressing to us and how we can re-parent and take care of our inner child particularly around angers and vulnerability.
  • Exploring where balance is in areas of our life e.g. giving and receiving.
  • Finding new ways to self-soothe and feel safe from within.
  • Finding out which are our usual emotional state of being and learn how to move into other emotional states of being so that we have choices.
  • Learning how to have more choices around thoughts, emotions and behaviours and how empowering that can feel.

Bodywork/Massage/Energy

  • Helping the body feel safe to teach it to let go and relax.

  • Allowing the client to notice the tension patterns that they hold and start to connect them to mind, emotions and behaviours.
  • Using energy (Reiki) to rebalance the body and for deeper healing in letting go the negative patterns the body is holding.
