Healing comes from the word wholeness.

What is therapy and how do we become whole?

9X4A7112.jpg

It is estimated 95% of our brain activity is unconscious. Unconscious drives fragment the self because they dictate our behaviour, decisions, and emotional state. This lack of awareness can make us feel out of control because we might feel like we don't understand why we are behaving, feeling a certain way, or staying stuck in the same patterns without any change.

 

With acceptance and compassion, we can integrate these more unconscious and lesser-known parts of ourselves into our awareness, reorganise our system, cultivate resilience and make decisions from an aware, confident and embodied self.

 

This is wholeness.

Psychotherapy safely, slowly, and gently helps bring our unconscious parts into consciousness, allowing new insights and growth to overcome life's difficulties and forge new pathways forward.

We heal by bringing loving awareness to all our parts.

Psychotherapy for health

Body symptoms have a wide range of presentations, including Fibromyalgia, cancer, skin conditions and autoimmune diseases. Autoimmune diseases alone are estimated to affect around 5-10% of the world's population, and the incidence of these diseases appears to be increasing. “In the most health-obsessed society ever, all is not well" Gabor Mate. Research shows that chronic stress can lead to persistent inflammation in the body and that trauma is more likely to manifest as soma (body) symptoms than as PTSD. This type of psychotherapy is a holistic approach to dis-ease. It considers the whole person – body, mind and spirit – as well as their environment, emphasises the interconnectedness of all aspects of one’s health, and takes the view that the mind and body are not separate, and what affects one, affects the other. This approach supports individuals in understanding better how unconscious patterns and behaviours influence their health. In a gentle and safe space, and with compassion and curiosity we listen and explore the body's messages, identifying areas which may be contributing to ill-health to create new ways of being. "Learn to read symptoms not only as problems to be overcome but as messages to be heeded." Gabor Mate. By cultivating a loving awareness and getting to know all parts of ones self we aim to increase health and well-being, reduce stress, be in touch with authentic feelings, heal past traumas and build connection, compassion, and resilience. Healing is a result of feeling safe, empowered and supported.
