Therapy is a journey of self-discovery.
Do you ever feel like something is wrong with you?
Who would you be if you didn’t feel this way?
There is an old Sufi saying ‘your longing is what you long for’.
Working with a dedicated counsellor is not necessarily like an archeological dig for skeletons of the past.
It’s about identifying feelings in the body and the patterns showing up in your life today. It’s discovering what you are wishing for and needing here-and-now. It’s about whatever it is you need to close open or repetitive loops or fill in the missing attunements in relationship with another.
Most people would benefit from having a safe space to express their uncensored truth.
Therapy is not only for those who are healing from overt trauma, such as life-threatening incidents. It’s the patterns showing up today in your psyche & soma that tell the story. We don’t need to unearth all the details of the past. Often the moments where we do have a shift seem to trickle out and heal other moments that felt similar.
It’s here and now that we can befriend the body, find our Center and ground our energy in order to find more resilience and a greater sense of spaciousness in our lives.
Many of my clients are struggling with or have struggled with:
- body image issues
- perfectionism & people-pleasing
- career decisions
- relationship questions
- inflation or deflation, sometimes associated with non-ordinary states
And may have a history of:
- painful relationships, losses or endings
- disordered eating or eating disorders
- distressing or disturbing experiences
You may be in a life transition, including entering pregnancy or parenthood. Or you may be integrating spiritual concepts or learning to "hold the tension of opposites" (Carl Jung).
Having the support of a trained therapist to help us process our feelings and make more meaning of our story allows us to begin to liberate ourselves from self-judgment, criticism, shame and blame.
Arriving at a new level of self-acceptance through this process, our gifts have more room to reveal themselves, weave into our lives and inspire us forward.
