More about me
Having been in practice for well over 27 years has given me lots of opportunity to see what actually helps people who REALLY want to change their lives. Merely talking about something that is bothering you once a week to a well meaning and caring person, might help you to feel soothed for the moment, but it won't necessarily help you to develop self care skills, a healthy mind and a positive relationship with yourself, all essential to living a satisfying life, enjoying good relationships and raising successful children.
To become a resilient person who can steer oneself through all the challenges that life offers and take the risks which are required to fully actualize ones true potential, takes daily practice. Overcoming self limiting beliefs and developing a new and more satisfying self concept is like changing the course of a river. Digging away at the river bank, daily consciousness and strategies for positive change need to be applied so that the river of the mind can take a new course and one can begin to experience oneself in new and exciting ways, free to fully be your most authentic and powerful self, outside of the cage of others'opinions and the fears of a doubting mind.
I see the therapeutic relationship as a partnership in which the intelligence and wisdom of the client joins with that of the therapist to create a safe and trusting space, so that a journey of self discovery, personal empowerment and full self expression can be achieved. In addition to what is achieved in sessions, I provide simple but powerful emotional/spiritual "exercises" for willing clients to do. This creates a link between sessions and speeds up the change process considerably. Dreams, writings, imagination and art are all welcome contributions to this exciting journey.
