As part of the humanistic and integrative tradition, Transpersonal psychotherapy is simple and safe. It’s capable of making profound changes, helping people to find a way to the heart of the issue and to deal with crises effectively.
Of course I use words and listening, but I also use creative imagery, visualisations, simple drawing, creative journals and dream-work to help people listen to their heart as well as their head.
This is the interface between body and emotions. Trauma and past experience might perpetuate physical symptoms that cannot be fully explained by the presence of a medical condition.
Listening to the inner voice is key. Discussing and talking through the situation that has led to the illness will help put things into perspective and support the process of recovery.
Developed by Bert Hellinger in the 1980s, this therapeutic technique helps to reveal the unconscious or hidden dynamics in family relationships, with our parents or our children. Working to make these dynamics conscious and accessible brings an understanding that restores the flow of love in the family. This can have a positive effect on health, wellbeing, confidence and self-esteem.
Constellations often involve a large group of people, but can be equally effective in a one-to-one setting. I enjoy incorporating these techniques into my one-to-one sessions.
As an Advanced Practitioner Member of the British Flower & Vibrational Essences Association (BFVEA), I offer Bach Flower Remedies as part of my psychotherapy practice, if they are needed. Each flower remedy is associated with a basic human emotion, and gently helps restore the balance between mind and body.
