"Knowing your own darkness is the best method for dealing
with the darkness of others"
I see counselling & psychotherapy as a journey into our “True Self”.
I follow the belief that we all strive for happiness, harmony, psychological and physical health. I also believe that we seek inner calmness and tranquillity.
However sometimes our behaviour and self-care is not conducive to helping us attain this. Through encouragement and a belief in the inner resources we all possess I believe my client’s will discern between behaviours, which are helpful or unhelpful to them. While the therapist cannot “wave a magical wand”, or make the journey for you they can walk with you, and sustain you along your way!!!
While we all have the potential to cope with life and our various struggles, in times of crises our natural coping skills can fail or desert us. Within the holistic therapeutic environment we can learn to connect with our inner strength and begin to heal.
