Dan LoweBody psychotherapy therapist
People come to therapy for many reasons; they may be experiencing distressing emotions, a lack of a fulfillment or meaning, or difficulties within relationships. Whatever brings you here, therapy is a process in which you can take time to sit with and explore these emotions, and work towards change. My role as a therapist is to support you in this process, to reflect back and clarify what you are feeling, and provide prompts and other techniques that aid deeper exploration.
I am an integrative psychotherapist and counsellor. An integrative approach means that I have studied several models of therapy and seek to put these together in a way that best meets each client’s individual needs. I believe that everyone is different and a range of potential approaches might be helpful as the therapeutic journey unfolds.
Two of my main influences are person-centred counselling – I value the gentle, accepting nature of this approach and its emphasis on the curative power of listening and being heard – and therapeutic bodywork. We carry a lot of emotion and unresolved feelings in our bodies and working with this actively can be powerfully transformative. I also have a long-term interest in mindfulness and meditation; I have benefitted from an active meditation practice for over 20 years.
Prior to becoming a therapist, I worked as a teacher with young adults for many years. In that role, I saw that the most valuable learning happens when pupils feel heard and valued. I now bring that non-judgmental attention to my therapeutic work.
