Counselling in Walthamstow and online
There is a crack in everything, that's how the light gets in.
As an Integrative Transpersonal Counsellor, I draw on different therapeutic approaches in my work. These include transpersonal, Jungian, psychodynamic and Gestalt. I give a place to soul and soulfulness, which means viewing difficult experiences as a meaningful part of our journey towards wholeness, wisdom and self-acceptance.
This doesn’t mean being insensitive to painful experiences and feelings, but recognising that attempts to deny them or 'focus on the positive' can create more suffering or be a temporary 'sticking plaster' solution. We need to engage deeply with our wounds in order to integrate and ultimately transform them, and empower ourselves to make changes in our lives.
We may sometimes work with dreams, stories, images, movement and embodiment to access less conscious material and connect you with the wisdom and healing potential of your body, creativity and intuition - and heal your connection to these if they have been ruptured through trauma.
You can expect me to be curious and an active participant in the therapeutic process. I will help you to be authentic, relational and vulnerable by being so myself.
