Short-term counselling can be helpful in times of crisis, loss or transition or as a reflective space in which you can reassess your life's priorities, set goals and review progress.
Often 1-10 sessions can be sufficient to refocus depending on the gravity of the events that may bring you to therapy and whether you then become aware of and/or motivated to explore deeper issues.
The length and specific approach of therapy is a collaborative process at the intersection of my skills and experience and your specific needs at this particular time on your journey.
Ultimately I believe you have an inner knowing that can, once awakened and empowered, effectively guide you through life's challenges.
As your therapist I offer my empathy, warmth, intuition and conscious intention in service of your short- and medium-term needs and desired direction.
My approach to counselling integrates humanistic, person-centred, body and breath awareness and mindfulness strategies.
Longer term psychotherapy can be helpful when you become aware of ineffective coping patterns and/or unprocessed emotions, associated with past traumas and painful events that keep arising to be healed.
Within 10-20 sessions significant changes can occur in areas of your life that, prior to therapy, felt impossible.
When there are multiple areas of concern or deeper emotional wounds, longer term (20+ sessions) can provide the necessary ongoing support needed for change to become possible, integrated and maintained.
The length and specific approach of therapy is a collaborative process and reviewed regularly.
Longer term therapy fosters the opportunity to build a stronger therapeutic basis from which deeper work can be undertaken safely.
My approach to psychotherapy integrates humanistic, psychodynamic, somatic, internal family systems and trauma awareness.
