I believe we all have a core self or soul that is not necessarily expressed or manifest. I also believe we have the capacity to awaken to our soul and fulfill its journey. When we access this core self, a healing power is released that moves us towards ever greater well-being and wholeness. We feel more alive, more present, and filled with a deeper sense of meaning. We also experience the connection between ourselves and the people around us.
I have found, in myself and in others, that the way to connect with our core self is to listen fully to all parts of ourselves with curiosity, unconditional acceptance and presence. I have also discovered that we can create authentic, fulfilling relationships with others only when we have a relationship with our core self.
My approach as a psychotherapist is to honor the soul of each person and support them in accessing the innate wisdom, aliveness and healing power that this self contains. I do this through deep empathic listening, gentle guidance, intuition and by using methods from Nonviolent Communication™, Spiritual Psychology and Inner Relationship Focusing.
