METHODS WE MAY USE
After being a clinical psychotherapist for more than a decade, I am passionate about pushing through the limits of traditional therapy.
While we do address past baggage and trauma that hold you back, our focus is on helping you move towards your desired outcome, or living a full life. Rather than dwelling in psychodynamic discussions, we will also talk pragmatically about your day-to-day habits and performance, career path, life goals and relationship fulfilment.
My approach to working with emotional intensity is to employ creative and intuitive methods such as Art and Poetry Healing and to adapt and draw from well-founded therapy techniques such as Schema Therapy. The work is holistic in nature and will include elements of Jungian Symbol Work, Enneagram Coaching, Dream Analysis, and Shadow Work.
The process will involve creative homework and reflective exercises designed to help you consolidate the insights and progress we make within the sessions. For example, I may ask you to bring in photographs, doodle or some form of diary entries. Nothing is mandatory, however. It all depends on what you are comfortable with. For more information on some of these activities, please see the Online Portal.
On top of ‘fire-fighting’ with the imminent issues, we aim to make changes to the deep-seated life patterns that cause similar problems to come up again and again in your life. This process can create lasting changes because it looks beyond the surface and addresses the core emotional roots.
Sharing ideas and knowledge with you is a core part of our journey. Ultimately, you will be equipped with the necessary skills and capacity so that you can take charge of your growth.
