Work With Me
How I work is driven by the most important person in this process and that’s you! Our sessions can be weekly, they can be fortnightly, and they can even be a one-off. Good to know when you’re facing a difficult time and you don’t know how you’re going to get through it.
But what actually happens depends on you. Not everyone wants to talk, each session. Sometimes a different approach is needed. A (hands off) energy healing session. A creative activity. It’s your call.
And you’re free to talk about your loved one in any way that feels right for you, including bringing in photos. There may be times when you just need to feel connected to your loved one and talk about memories with me, that may not be possible otherwise.
Sometimes losing a loved one is so traumatic, that a specialist type of EMDR trauma therapy is required to bring back a state of balance. As an Accredited EMDR Practitioner, this is something I can help you with.
Our sessions will be designed to help you to get in touch with the parts of yourself that need healing and then to bring to the surface your inner wisdom that give you clues to your purpose, lessons and gifts to aid your spiritual growth.
People might say you have to move forward. You might even agree with them. But that doesn’t mean it’s easy. It isn’t. It’s difficult. If you’re going to find inner peace, meaning and purpose, it will be by healing the trauma, anger, guilt, shame or regrets you have. You’ll never reach the goal of living a new life of being lighter, brighter and free until you’ve done the work we’ll do together.
Time a Great Healer? Not on its Own, it Isn’t
It’s often said that time is a great healer. Sadly, that’s not the case. Time can heal but to a limited degree. Yes, symptoms of grief can appear to reduce over time but they are just suppressed, they don’t disappear or go away; they just transform into something else like explosive anger, or depression. Others may experience a continuation or worsening of grief no matter what time has passed.
Without doing the inner work you won’t gain access to the wisdom, lessons, gifts and purpose that leads you to a more meaningful and purposeful life than before. And you only do that work if you set aside time for it. That’s why even making your first appointment can be so liberating. It’s the knowledge it brings that you’re doing something just for you. That you’ve started down the path that will in due course see the end of that walking under the dark cloud you’ve come to know so well.
Between sessions, you will receive further benefits through my healing meditations, which you can listen to at home. These meditations are designed to help improve your wellbeing even further. And because these are yours to keep, you continue to get further benefits long after the work between us has finished.
How You Will Work
Counselling and coaching work when you engage with it. It isn’t like being prescribed medication by your GP, that may work and may not but if it does it will be without your co-operation. How much you engage in the therapeutic process, will play a part in the positive changes you will experience. I’m here to help you identify and clarify the changes that will turn your life into the life you want it to be.
Whether you’ve been through a painful loss or terrible experience, or simply sense that your life is not what it’s supposed to be – you can only progress if you access the place inside you where your strengths, positive energy and an incredible potential of powerful resources live. Without that access, it’s so easy to lose hope. To feel weary, listless, lost and ready to just give up. Very few people can free themselves from that feeling that way without help. Giving that help is what I do.
