Therapy sessions are held in a safe, accepting and confidential setting. Working together, I see the therapeutic relationship as a collaboration with your specific needs in mind. By working together, you have the opportunity to gain new insight into difficulties and work toward profound change.
Benefits of working together:
- having the opportunity to be really heard - working with a non-judgemental therapist
- gaining a better understanding of the interaction between body and mind
- being in a nurturing and supportive environment
- Stress management
- Chronic pain
- Childhood neglect
- Body image
- Relationship conflicts
My approach to therapy is holistic. I combine talk therapy with body-centred techniques and mindfulness. Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, involves the innate link between what we think and what we feel in our bodies as an important piece of our life story that often gets overlooked in therapy. Together, we focus on what happens - on a body level - that connects to how you think or feel about a situation. This provides new meaning that we might not find otherwise. There is much wisdom in the body and tapping into it opens up a new way of looking at a problem. Our posture, gestures, eye gaze, movement and facial expressions all tell a part of our life story. It is our unique "somatic" or body narrative. This narrative is invaluable and provides a much-needed avenue of self-knowledge and growth that leads to change. I also use EMDR Therapy (trauma de-sensitization and reprocessing) for anxiety and trauma.
Whether you are giving meaning to past experiences or focusing on present day problems, I would like to offer my psychotherapy services and help you reach your therapeutic goals. Feel free to email or phone to schedule an initial consult.
