My Approach to Helping
My counselling approach is Holistic Expressive Therapy, proven to be helpful to people of all ages. It is integrative as it incorporates a broad range of expressive therapies to help you heal such as art therapy, play therapy, sand play, music, and other expressive therapies. It is holistic because it is meant to address "the whole" of your needs including physical, emotional, cognitive, and spiritual. I use a person-centered approach by being focused on your unique needs. The Centre For Expressive Therapy provides a safe, nurturing environment where you can connect with your true nature and access your inner wisdom, and with guidance begin to heal. Such healing needs to take place on all levels as each level influences the other. The physical level is body-centered and provides soothing and healing for the senses. The emotional level provides repair of attachment and the recovery of the whole range of feelings with the ability to express them creatively. On the cognitive level, we repair the mistaken views that have interfered with the healing process, make sense of your life situation, and gain a more realistic view of the world. On the spiritual level, you gain a sense of being intact, no matter what, as you remain connected to your true nature and access its wisdom and guidance. The result is an increase in confidence, strength, creativity, and energy to meet life's challenges.
