My Approach to Helping
I believe we are each capable of healing, and that growth occurs within relationships with others and with aspects of ourselves. At its best, therapy can be such a relationship, one that fosters change within ourselves and our lives.
Likely you will do most of the talking, while I ask the occasional question or draw your attention to something that may be important. If needed, I may suggest a particular focus for the session, or even an exercise, but the majority of our time together involves you exploring your own experiences – past and present – with my support. My goal is to help you develop a greater sense of coherence and integration, which is one of the first things lost when there is trauma. This experience of healing often occurs as we bring a particular quality of attention to our experiences of ourselves - body and mind - and our experience of others. My work in the room revolves around supporting this helpful quality of attention.
