The Practice Approach
The approach of my Practice is from a Holistic view point. The treatments offered here are specifically to enable the well being of the client through alleviating or managing pain, looking after the mind and body.
My counselling approach is Integrative Art. This means that different theoretical approaches are used to try to understand both the beginnings of psychological problems from the past, what is happening currently and how they form the person we are now. The Arts are used to express deep emotions of the soul.
The goal of Therapeutic Counselling is the greater understanding of life’s experiences and how we can life a much fulfilling life. Examples of Therapeutic Approaches include Psychodynamic, Gestalt, Humanistic, Transactional Analysis etc. Every client is unique and so your treatment plan is tailored to suit your individual needs with information drawn from your life (past/present), supported by the various theoretical approaches.
Counselling Using The Arts
Creativity occurs in the right brain and this enables us to communicate our emotions through images. The Arts are used to help you to be more expressive of your emotions using metaphor and a range of techniques including:
- sand play,
- music and
This is done in a safe, secure and empathic environment, where you feel listened to and supported, without being judged. The healing process may then commence.
