How I Work
"It is is only with the heart that one can see rightly, what is essential is invisible to the eye." Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
Connecting to Our Healthy Core
The therapy session is time for you to connect with what is going on in your life, and to be reminded of the healthy you that resides at the Core of your being, whatever else may be going on.
Compassion to Self
Research has shown that one important key to gaining more of a sense of well-being is by cultivating an attitude of kindness and compassion - towards oneself as well as others.
Witness Consciousness Developing an increased Witness-Consciousness by using a Mindfulness approach, we gain greater resources and the emotional resilience to help guide us when we are faced with more challenging aspects of life.
Recovery I have had the privilege of working alongside many different people as they travel along their journey towards wellness. Priority is given to the inner resourcing of every person who works with me, both in and beyond the therapy session. Central to the work is the focus and care taken to help establish and support as much of a sense of safety and well-being as is possible.
No Wound, No Pearl
A pearl is created by an oyster's reaction to the wounding caused by a foreign body such as grain of sand or a parasite. The oyster produces a series of secretions with which the irritant is coated, layer upon layer, and which finally imbues the pearl with its preciousness and beauty.
Something beautiful is formed that wouldn't have been possible without the wound! "And thus, like the wounded oyster, he mends his shell with pearl.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
