Why choose counselling?
The support of a counsellor can help you live life to your full potential. There are many challenges that can take our focus away from living a more fulfilled life. People who are looking for support from a counsellor may have pivotal life choices to make; they may recognise repeat patterns that do not support their well-being and happiness, or be moving through present or past grief and loss. They can be going through a time of crisis; are burnt out, have been through or experienced a number of traumatic personal trauma or transgenerational trauma events; are working through past and present challenging relationship dynamics with oneself, partners, family, friends, at work, with life; and, or are seeking personal meaning, purpose and fulfilment.
What to expect with creative counselling
Primarily the journey is yours and you may wish to talk through your process and I will help guide and support you in more directive ways if needed. I will mostly listen and help you reflect upon your process and share with you opportunities to use Art, Creativity, Play (i.e. Sandplay, Roleplay), Movement, Stories, Meditation, Heart Mind Connection, and Mind Body Connection. And I will offer you ways to ground this all into your day to day life.
What does transpersonal mean?
The transpersonal aspires towards the understanding that everything is connected. I have worked with people in Laos, Libya, Lebanon, Turkey, France, Italy and the U.K. holding this intention with full respect to their social, cultural, mental, emotional and physical needs.
What makes this a creative process?
Talking is part of the process and can be the method used if you wish.
- Art & Play
Creative Arts and Play are effortless pathways to the subconscious, whose methods range from messing around or making well considered placement of figurines in a sand tray, to painting, using clay, doodling or role playing, juggling or even singing & dancing if the mood takes you. With creative practices I can help you to explore the relationships between the symbols, shapes, and forms in what you create and the thoughts and feelings which come with them. This part of the journey usually contains an element of surprise which clients enjoy because it shows that there is more than they expected.
- Transpersonal & Holistic
The Transpersonal and Holistic brings perspective into your individual experience. This helps you extend your identity beyond the thoughts that can bring about the feeling of being stuck.
