Do you struggle with anxiety, depression or loneliness? Or do you perhaps suffer from low self-esteem, and struggle to find purpose in life? Are your relationships fulfilling for you, or do you struggle to have meaningful and satisfying connections with others? Perhaps you've experienced loss of some kind, and are nursing a broken heart. Whatever it is, life sometimes has a way of throwing us challenges that can make us feel small or inadequate. The important thing is that you desire to take the first step on the path towards healing and self-discovery.
I am a Psychosynthesis Counsellor working towards a full psychotherapy qualification. Having a background in both Eastern (yoga, meditation, tantra) as well as Western (astrology, tarot, plant medicines) spiritual traditions, I like working creatively to unlock what lies in my clients' unconscious such as through the use of dreamwork or active imagination.
I have called what I am offering Ying Yang Therapy because, just as in the ancient Daoist concept of non-dualism, I believe that counselling and psychotherapy is a fundamental bringing together of two or more seemingly opposite or conflicting parts within us so that we may become whole. I’m also drawn towards Jung’s theory that the human psyche seeks wholeness – wholeness comprising of both light and shadow, a state in which consciousness and the unconscious work together in harmony. How can we embrace even the dark, shadowy aspects of ourselves that, nevermind others, even WE may find unloveable and intolerable?
My intention is that I provide a safe, non-judgmental space for us to walk this journey together in Presence. Together we will work towards strengthening your connection to your innermost being, thereby giving you the tools to access the guidance of your own inner Wise One. I would also like to work with you on opening your heart to all the joy, beauty and abundance that is your birthright. My ultimate aim is that you should be able to step into being a conscious co-creator of your own reality and connect to your soul’s infinite creative potential, thereby empowering you to achieve your heart’s deepest desires in this life.
