In a counselling session, it is all about you. You get my undivided attention to explore any distressing feelings.
When we experience a problem, our system contracts: The body tightens, the mind slots into one-dimensional repetitive thinking and our emotions are disturbed. During our session, we will gently explore expansion and as you open, the insights, and solutions you need, can come towards you. I believe that we all have what we need already inside of us -we just need to make space. My job is to guide you through this process by being present, listening, asking questions, and offering suggestions. I will also provide tools and exercises, specially designed for you and your situation.
Most of us long for love, connection, and intimacy. We hope to find those qualities in our romantic relationships. But that doesn’t always work out. Sometimes we go through a phase of difficulty, conflict and pain. During those times, we may need support.
Throughout our sessions, we will explore how to improve intimacy, honesty, and friendship with yourself and with your partner. I will provide you with the support you need to resolve conflict in a healthy, productive way that results in growing together.
Is Your Relationship a Little Different?
I meet people from all walks of life. No matter your gender identity, sexual orientation, or relationship format, you are welcome. I work with monogamous, polyamorous and any other kind of non-traditional relationships.
Meditation, as I practice it, is the art of simply sitting quietly and listening. It can give you a sense of stillness and infinite expansion but most importantly, peace. It is possible to drop into a place that is free of your problems, wants and needs. It is recharging body, mind and soul. Once you have experienced that state, you never forget it.
‘The Work’ was developed by Byron Katie. It is a powerful technique that can lead you straight to the core of your distress and help you to see more clearly what is really going on.
However, ‘The Work’ is more than a tool. It will guide you to a deeper understanding of yourself, others, and life. It consists of four questions – the answers to those questions will come from you, for you. It is about you tapping into your own inner wisdom. Learning the technique can give you independence because you can do The Work on your own, any time, anywhere and it is free.
Self-Inquiry through Art
Drawing, painting, creative writing, and poetry can be a tool to find out more about your subconscious. As a visual artist and creative writer, I can guide you to express and explore your thoughts and emotions. You don’t need any prior artistic experience.
Kickstart Your Creativity
Do you want to be creative but don’t know how to start? As I see it, anyone can paint, draw, sculpt, write, make music – anybody can create. It is not reserved for a chosen few. If you feel a desire to be creative, but it is not happening, you most likely have a belief system that limits you. We all have an inner critic who restricts us from exploring and playing freely. Kickstart your Creativity is specially designed to work on your mental blocks and free your creative spirit.
Would you like to run a workshop and share your skills with people? Maybe you don’t have the experience yet to plan and structure a workshop. Workshop mentoring covers:
- Support in planning and conducting a workshop.
- Identifying insecurities and fears.
- How to become a good facilitator.
- Tools and exercises designed for your participants.
If you are working with people, you may face challenging moments. Maybe a client touches your own story and vulnerability. As facilitators, we can even encounter our own blind spots or trigger points.
In those cases, you may benefit from talking with a non-biased person in a supportive environment. Your and your clients confidentiality is always a priority during supervision.
