"We cannot change anything unless we accept it. Condemnation does not liberate, it oppresses." Carl Jung
Counselling and psychotherapy are about providing a safe, compassionate and confidential space in which you can explore the issues and inner conflicts that affect your life. Through coming to understand the origins of your difficulties and developing a more empathic relationship with yourself you can grow to face your life with greater confidence, fulfilment and authenticity.
My approach to counselling is primarily influenced by Psychosynthesis principles (http://www.psychosynthesis-uk.com) and is tailored to the needs of each individual. It is a holistic approach involving mind, body, feelings, sexuality and spirituality.
Psychosynthesis is a Psychospiritual Psychotherapy.
While acknowledging the pain and difficulties you experience, the broader vision is held that the soul is seeking expression through your symptoms. What troubles you therefore becomes the working material for psychological growth and personal fulfilment.
Psychosynthesis is a depth psychology. All experience, from the beginning of life, plays a role in the development and functioning of your personality, often unconsciously. From early childhood humans learn to adapt to their environment, often at the cost to more creative, vulnerable and unique aspects of the Self. Learning how you have been limited in your potential and wellbeing through past conditioning enables the development of new, fulfilling ways of being.
The process is one towards Self-realisation.
