Healing From Within

Serenity.

it does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work.

it means to be in the midst of those things  

and still be calm in your heart.

    My Approach

    My approach to healing is integrative, where I tailor therapy to the client’s unique needs and circumstances. I strive to create a therapeutic environment of warmth, acceptance and unconditional positive regard. My hope is for the client to feel safe enough to disclose and explore matters of the heart without fear of judgement. It is my privilege to be endowed with one’s trust of sharing their pain, and I treat this with my highest respect.

    I believe that therapist and client are on equal par, with the therapist knowing about psychology and the client knowing about their personal experiences. I will walk beside you as a supportive partner in your journey to the life that you desire.

    With this in mind, I do not believe that the therapist “knows best” but that with skilful facilitation, the client may come to realise their own answers. In this manner, the client’s reality is not contaminated by the therapist’s impositions but instead, awareness and insights gained truly become their own.

    Techniques implemented come from a variety of schools, including behaviourism, cognitivism, Gestalt, humanism, psychoanalysis, systems psychology and existentialism. These are carefully selected and organised to suit the client’s context.

    Regardless of the specific techniques endorsed, the broad aim is one that I would like to describe via a metaphor I once encountered:

    We may be likened to balloons…originating with different colours, sizes and shapes…and as we go through life we begin to inflate. However, certain life events and experiences place pieces of cellotape on our delicate emerging forms, which hinder us from growing in the way that we are intended. Therapy is then the careful and gentle pulling off of these pieces so that the balloon may continue to develop towards their full potential and dreams.
