Private Practice: continued from home page ...
Therapy works at different depths. Sometimes, the simple fact of taking time and space to listen and open with another to what's happening in our world is enough to find a different path through difficulty. Sometimes there's a readiness to go to new and deeper levels which bring with them new perspective and realization of what we are, within who we've become. This is transformational, and begins a whole new alignment to deeper meaning which we can respond and give form to.
Always we work in connection with our natural resources, bringing these together with what in our selves has become contracted and reactive, dull or stuck. The more relaxed and present we are able to be with our experience the more of our true nature opens, bringing with it the possibility of entirely new pathways amongst the old.
My role as therapist is to be with you and facilitate your natural unfolding. You'll uncover your own resources and wisdom, be better able to navigate within according to your deepest values ... and then bring it all out into your life.
Speaking Circles sometimes bring up patterning that benefits from individual focus and attention. I love to work one-to-one in this way.
I hold a Diploma in Counselling from Exeter College, UK, and a Diploma in Core Process Psychotherapy from the Karuna Institute, UK.
If you're willing, relationship can be a transformative crucible. Until then, it can be a place to get stuck, to fall asleep, or to settle for much less than the initial vision of your togetherness, resulting in dullness, separation and pain.
I once read that every relational difficulty is a 'spiritual' opportunity: a place of potential integration of what we really are with the self that we've created. I have found this to be true, and am grateful to the wise ones who have gone ahead and have become trustworthy guides. I know that the cutting edges in relationship are also leading edges, and that we often wriggle and fight for a long time before we receive their invitation!
Relational presence is the bridge, our unseen yet most real connection to one another which may be embodied ... healing and transforming relationships. Opening to this subtle level is available to everyone. It just needs discerning amongst all that we're used to giving attention to.
I've found that the most difficult truths to share often open the most real flow of love. I'd like to support you in your deeper togetherness: in meeting, listening and speaking from a place of greater transparency and honesty.
Sharing your Message
Many of us offer a skill or service we'd like others to know about but shrink at the thought of speaking in front of an audience. We want to reach our listeners and be heard without 'pitching' them or using exhausting performance techniques. We want our audience to feel seen, and speak with them not 'at' them.
If you would like to move forward in this way with your business, I'd love to help you create your presentation based on the Speaking Circles principles. Once we can embody this foundation, we are free to add the message you'd like to share in a way that is impactful, juicy and real.
I'd be happy to work with you individually or in a small group with others who have a similar goal.
